So many special things going on - always call or check the website. Music, TV, friends, drinks, food - this place has it all. Live performances, movies, you name it. KTAOS has it in their sprawling complex!

This place didn't interest me at all. A bar and not much more. They advertise some but nothing much to attract me again.
