Why not ask about ordering a 'Giraffe' of Beer or Prosecco reception to share with friends!

This fun, cool bar is a great spot to just hang out and take in the quirky decor with local artwork before the party kicks off. Find a spot to sit and chat as you sip cocktails or one of their specially-sourced craft brews while munching on some pizza, then shake off any first-date nerves on the dancefloor.
