The atmosphere and actual seating area of this place are pretty awful. It's hard to tell what they are going for. Is it a lobby? A bowling alley without lanes? An airport gate ready for boarding? Not sure really. Some areas are so well-lit, you could perform surgery. The place has so much open square-footage that, although there are actually around 50 people present, it would appear there are about 5, but then you're reminded that there are much more because the two bartenders on staff on a Saturday night are overwhelmed and take forever to fetch you a menu, let alone a drink.
So why 4-stars? Simply for the live music. The collective of blues and jazz musicians performing on a Saturday is so incredibly exciting, uplifting and mesmerizing, you forget about so the wonky atmosphere altogether. There is a huge wine selection, at very reasonable prices, which is another plus. But the music is just spectacular and something that more people should see/hear.
