"The Crow's Nest" is an observation lounge with floor-ceiling windows and comfortable seating, In the evenings it transforms into a cocktail bar lounge with live grand piano performances.
"The Epicurean" restaurant (adjacent to Crow's Nest) is a specialty / fine dining venue with Select Dining, impeccable service, top-quality dining amenities, gourmet food and a premium wine list. Dishes are prepared with freshest and finest local produce. A private dining area and "Chef's Table" (capacity 8 guests) provide options for private parties and special celebrations.
