The Senator Winebar is located on our second floor in the original building that dates back to the 1860's. It is an intimate, Parisian-style bistro serving hearty, delicious comfort food that is rooted in the classics, along with a curated selection of privately imported wines. A talented roster of artists, highlighted by our resident Juno award winning blues pianist Julian Fauth, perform various genres every Friday and Saturday night; see full listings on our MUSIC page. The 24-seat room is on top of the original Senator Diner and is outfitted with period furnishings including a 1920’s Prohibition era bar from Cleveland and a classic 1929 Heintzman upright piano.
