The service was excellent, the event was quite enjoyable, the staff worked out a ticket exchange for drinks for us, which was extremely helpful!

It would have been useful to have some posted signs, both outside on the sidewalk to assist guests in finding the location, and a sign outside the interior door to let attendees know there was a private event that evening; Wargaming Network staff had to turn away many people who were not attendees of the event for which we had hired the bar.
