At street level, we offer our open and expansive Main Dining Floor, designed to accommodate up to 130 guests seated and up to 180 for a canape style event.
By day the atrium fills the space with light. By night, it lights up with the buzz of the semi-open kitchen including the asado (barbecue) imported from Buenos Aires.
