Sycamore: A local hang out offering Italian and American all-day dining along with a full bar, Sycamore offers guests a chance to experience a shared service style of dining in a fun, sociable, and informal atmosphere with minimalist contemporary design featuring mid-tone woods, a brass sculptural bar, banquettes and leather chairs.
QT: Dark and moody, with hunter green drapes and richly stained wood floors and accents, this basement bar offers guests not only a welcoming place to sip cocktails and nibble on light bites, it’s also a space for live performances and nightly entertainment.
