Dining + Entertainment

We raised the bar on conference dining and entertainment.

Our culinary philosophy is to provide a dining experience that represents everything from favorite comfort foods to current culinary trends.

Power up in the morning with made-to-order omelettes, Swedish pancakes and hot Starbucks coffee. Recharge mid-day with crisp paninis, grilled angus hamburgers, and a bounty of fresh salads—and relax in the evening with maki rolls, ancho chili roasted strip loin, and an assortment of fine wines. These are just some of the offerings prepared by our team of professional chefs. We also offer custom menu options for those with special dietary restrictions.

Between meetings and during free times, enjoy several on-site entertainment options. Sip a signature cocktail at Tower Bar, watch your favorite team on big flat screen TVs in the Clubhouse, or snack on some popcorn on movie nights. And if you'd like to explore the surrounding area, we can even help you plan some local entertainment off-site.
