Excellent view and liming venue. The ambience is good, however I didn’t like the idea of too much lighting. Its a bit pricy compared to other venues. It’s great for parties, liming and other sessions.

  • Triple Century Sports Bar and Grill

  • TGI Fridays

The one place In Kingston where people can get really noisy without being told to quite down. As for the menu, I have several timeless favorites. Good for business meetings at lunch time and hanging with the family on weekends or dinner time.

  • Mayfair Pub Bar & Grill

The Pub Bar and Grill assumes the atmosphere of the laid back Mayfair Hotel, where it is housed. It's very English, of course, and has become a popular spot with most people.
