There were a few bites last night but it definitely looked like a preview menu. I'm guessing that will be expanded upon going forward. There were a few good-looking bites but we didn't try any of the food. But yes, food is definitely part of the program.
I'd guess it seats around 80-100 or so if you count the bar. It's a big space, so it could be even more than that. There are tables -- low and high -- throughout the room, about 20 seats at the bar and banquettes along the walls. Seating was very comfortable. I thought the space was beautiful. It evoked a polished Tiki vibe in a major way without being over the top cheezy at all. You walk in and you are immediately transported. The finishes are really upscale.
Drinks were $13 each and the several I tasted were very good -- extremely similar (and, in some cases, identical) to Paul's Tiki Nights at Whistler. The most impressive element of the bar, IMO, is the astonishing procurement of rums, rhums and other cane spirits on the back bar. It's awesome. Even for a boozehound like myself, there were bottles up there I'd never seen before. They are still about 2 weeks away from getting them all compiled into a book/menu but my understanding is that they are available for ordering.
