Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Named for a flirtatious and fashion-forward Dickens character who influenced countless late19th-Century trends, this fun, stylish restaurant can accommodate even the most intimate of gatherings, and whole-restaurant buyouts are available if you’re planning on something a bit more grand.
  • Upstairs areas include the Gallery, Grand Salon, and Peacock Lounge, where you’ll find touches drawn from the rich furnishings and finishes of the Gilded Age and Roaring ‘20s—think deep-set booths, jewel tones, lavish wall coverings, and romantic sconces.
  • The eclectic, luxe vibe continues downstairs in Dolly’s Lounge Car. A replica of an Art Deco-inspired train car, it boasts a gorgeous bar with elegant tile work and an ultra-intimate hideaway called “Gigglemug Corner.” Who could resist that?
