The weather was Unseasonably Warm but didn't affect venue.. I wore Comfortable shoes. Venue was standing room event..
The weather was warm that evening . I wore After five comfortable outfit .
$10 minimum (just buy a glass of wine). Automatic 15% gratuity.
No shuttle as indicated on venue website.
Dine BEFORE you go. Waitress in the balcony area was stretched thin. Food was little more than microwave re-heat...and not cheap. $12.00 for a cocktail and a 15% gratuity was automatically included for my party of 4.
If you don't want to eat, you can go to the balcony section that don't have tables.
If you arrive early, you can find a parking space in the neighborhood
The weather was calm. I wore blue jeans, nice blouse, and boots..
Food was not too bad - in flavor and cost-wise.
Parking is by valet and costly. Try to arrive very early to find accessible street parking.
The weather was warm for February. I wore light jacket and slacks and blouse. .
Arrive early for good seating. The tables are pushed together to form a party of eight. Don't be a fill-in. It's annoying to you as you have to "crawl" through to the seat and the people already at the table who have gotten situated.
$10 per person minimum if you sit anywhere. It's worth it to sit but your $10 quickly gets higher since nothing costs just $10 and the 15% gratuity for relatively poor service is added in already.
The weather was cold. I wore leggings, sweater, uggs. It was cold inside the venue and I kept on my coat the entire time..
Parking is a bitch, 20 bucks in a nearby lot, on street very limited as many streets posted for reisdents-only parking. Get to venue early for a decent seat.
Right near lots of restaurants and bars so come early via Uber or metro, and make a night of it
The weather was Unseasonably warm!. I wore A dress.
The balcony is great seating and the booths are cozy and intimate.
Close to metro station .Few minutes walk
We dined & had drinks at venue.Seems to have a few restaurants and bars close by also
