We really enjoyed sitting in the evening listening to the live music. Very talented musicians and the margaritas are the best!

As lively as Lobby Bars get! All manner of tasty finger food and a happening Happy Hour. Very attentive and professional wait staff. A perfect way to wind down a busy day listening to the local musical attractions.
