Accessibility info: Entry on street level, no steps and no ramps into the seating area, wheelchairs would have to call first because of narrow aisles, but I bet they would accommodate you; many were there with canes, albeit pretty ones, and were fine. However, the coat room is down a flight of steps and I am not sure if the bathroom may be there too. Check if that is a concern. I found them helpful when I called about my companion, who cannot do stairs.

More Information


Bistro Award-winning vocalist Grace Cosgrove shifts her attention from the eclectic music of her past to the pop contemporary rhythms of legendary composer Burt Bacharach in her new show Wishin’ & Hopin’, coming to the stage of the Metropolitan Room in May. With her long-time collaborators Don Rebic at the piano and Eric Michael Gillett as director, Grace pays tribute to the Burt Bacharach songs that formed the soundtrack of our lives, guiding the audience into a musical collage of the times in which they were written and popularized. “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?”, “Alfie”, “The Look of Love”, “That’s What Friends Are For”, “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head”; they’re all here, brought to life once more through Grace Cosgrove’s introspective and moving vocals and Don Rebic’s brilliant, imaginative arrangements.
