No longer will a day pass be required to take advantage of this haven from the heat and heaving traffic to sit down to a meal, take a meeting or sip a Mojito or three! Bistro C is open to the public from 7am daily for break- fast, lunch and dinner with the Smoke House menu offers a tantalising array of tasty choic- es after 5pm!
