Guests will be greeted by a spacious atrium whose globe pendant lamps float beneath a generous skylight. A myriad of colored tiles, polished copper and leather accents provide a warm, tactile environment with subtle nods to nautical themes. The elegant 20-seat private dining room has a woven cane ceiling, painted lacquered wall panels, and embossed leather chairs.
