Hours: 9 am-12 am

How Place is a restaurant and bar offering a unique interior, beautifully plated food and an extensive menu. Versatile lighting enables it to transform its ambiance from an evening dining spot to a happening cocktail bar whose seats are filled with chatty customers, or into a low-lit, more intimate setting for a handful of patrons relaxing over a drink.

In addition, a variety of seating arrangements offer distinctly different socializing experiences. Clusters of sofas situated around coffee tables allow friends to enjoy each other's company in a closer living-room type setting or share a space with a stranger, while tall tables with bar stools, books and reading lamps can be enjoyed by those seeking a bookstore and coffee house vibe. There is also a large banquet table for large groups and smaller tables for more intimate date-night settings. Multiple light bulbs are suspended from the ceiling and fashion shows are projected onto a large screen.
