Cool, small "fringe theatre" located on top of a wine bar. The theatre is a small room with some benches that sits about 30 people max. I saw "Don Juan Comes Back From The War", which fit the space great. Had a good time, I liked the intimacy that's possible in here. more

The bar area is pretty small - they sell pizzas too if you want to go for a pre-show meal - although there's not really much seating area. The theatre itself is cute and small. Seats aren't hugely comfortable, they're padded benches. Not sure if the... more
