This place in in an historic venue,and uniquely decorated. They have a stage for live performances and plenty of seating. The food is great and portions are large. Its a bit costly, but worth the visit.

A great place to meet friends have drinks and good food. Love their corned beef and boxty. It's near the Paramount Theatre so you can have dinner before or after a show. They usually offer theme dinners for each show in the Broadway series.
