Dada opened in Delray in the year 2000 in one of the oldest historic homes the Tarrimore house circa 1924 listed as a historic site in Delray Beach. The eclectic interior and revolving artwork compliment the creative cuisine, which is sustainably sourced. As the artist of the Movement we have strived to create an environment that is original, unique and forces us to step outside the box. Dada is non-conformist. It allows our food, atmosphere and staff artistic license, so to speak, to explore beyond the normal convention.
Inside, HULLABALOO’s decor is minimalist and clean, New York City loft meets Little Italy. The 1,700-square-foot space features a glossy, white-washed brick wall to the left, dotted with circular red and black leather booths paired with white marble tables. To the right is an expansive bar with plenty of seating to encourage both drinking and eating. It’s also where you’ll find the restaurant’s open kitchen, with a wood-fired stone hearth as a focal point.
The bar serves up dozens of craft beers and microbrews both in the bottle and on tap. There’s also over a dozen hand-crafted cocktails with ingredients and flavors as colorful as the music legends they are named for. Small-batch bourbons, rum, vodka, tequila and gin team up with fresh muddled herbs, bitters and spices like star anise, cinnamon and cloves to make various concoctions like the Ian Curtis, Biggie Smalls, Chuck Berry and Mia Zapata.
