The 11,000-square-foot venue is divided into two spaces: a restaurant "in the round" with a full bar and a 270-degree view of the stage, and on the other side: a "dynamic, state-of-the-art music, comedy and multi-use venue with the latest in lighting and video technology," according to a news release. 

It will be located in the Barnes & Noble, Charming Charlie's and Dave and Buster's wing.

The venue says it will have nightly entertainment in the restaurant, which will be open from 11 a.m. - 2 a.m. daily. The kitchen will specialize in "chef-driven comfort food favorites with a healthy twist."

The venue already has a few acts on the schedule:

  • Nov. 29-30: The Dan Band
  • Dec. 8: Frank Caliendo
  • Dec. 9: Marlon Wayans
  • Dec. 12: Broadway Princess Party
  • Dec. 15: Andrew Dice Clay
  • Jan. 26: Pretty Things Vaudeville Show
  • April 23-24: Friends! The Musical
