The staircase leading up to the mezzanine level dining area is steel framed, eliminating the need for structural supports from the ceiling. The beautiful hand-carved granite top bar perfectly accents the cozy waiting area.  Atmosphere abounds in every area of the property.


From the skylight in the kitchen for natural light to the on-site herb garden, no attention to detail has been overlooked.  The serene setting on a major thoroughfare through a quiet neighborhood lends itself well to a wide variety of possible uses such as an exclusive private dining club, restaurant and event space, open concept office or even possibly reconversion to a residence.
The tree-covered patio with stone wall surround and dedicated service bar brings the total seating capacity to approximately 175.  The lower level wine cellar completes the castle atmosphere with seating for 24 surrounded by beautiful wine storage racks, recessed lighting and ornate wall sconces.
