Built in the 1875 but substantially altered in 1905 with the creation of the exquisite facade and specular interior in now a very rare Art Nouveau style. Friars in marble and brass carouse their way around the pubs interior and exterior and the grotto (dining area) is clad in matched Italian marble topped with Romanesque ceiling gold leaf. A sight to behold! A lively city pub welcoming office workers and tourists. Breakfasts 10-noon and a variety of meals 12-10.
