We do not have a Happy Hour but both food and drink in our lounge are nicely priced and the variety can't be matched. We hope to see you there.

Our restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lunch reservations are typically not required but still recommended trough open table. Our fabulous burger is $14 as a guide. Hope to see you soon.
