Tempest isn't crawling with horny, mini-skirt wearing women dying to ride in my station wagon. In fact, judging by the amount of 30-something ladies smooching other ladies, it quickly becomes obvious that your best bet for meeting une autre is if you're a lesbian. 

But regardless of my seeming gender disadvantage, Tempest is great spot to meet women. Why? Because it's a cool bar. The red lighting, tight quarters and plethora of table lamps give off a strong aura of coolness. The DJ (DJ Dab this night) plays an interesting techno-calypso infusion. The patrons sport hip hairstyles, artist's jackets and leather boots. Walking into the place, you immediately feel suave. Cool with a capitol C.
