Restaurant
“It has a lot of Jazz and classical music shows, but I have seen some other more commercial bands there. They let you bring in a picnic basket, wine etc if it's a classical or jazz show, if it's something more commercial and modern like Nine inch Nails you probably can't. Unsure about older rock bands etc. I would think it would be based on what kind of people the music brings in....obviously not going to allow wine bottles etc. in a rap show (although not too sure they do much rap here. It's a very amazing place for a show, outside on a nice night. Lots of stairs etc ”
