The restaurant is 4,500 square feet and includes a large bar, dining room, and outdoor patio. The spacious lounge area features a copper still behind the bar, warm brick walls, and high ceilings with vintage-looking tin tiles, and a deep copper-colored basket weave ceiling. The main dining room is lit up by a large glittering crystal chandelier and seats 185 people with booths and also curved leather banquette seating which helps to create intimate dining spaces for guests. Scattered throughout the restaurant are light fixtures made of large milk glass globes and crimson glass cylinders with exposed light bulbs. Look around, and you'll also see their signature meat hook light fixtures.
The bar is lined with beer taps and certified Cicerones (beer sommeliers) who guide guests through the chalkboard list of hand selected craft beers on draft. They've got an excellent selection of local beer. Unsure of what to get, just tell the cicerones what you like, and they'll make a recommendation. You can't go wrong with a Stone IPA, or Ommegang White. If you fancy bourbon, they've got a fine selection of that as well.
