They are currently renovating and only the 2nd floor is open. Fifth floor is open but it is an educational children's art camp-class. There is a David Bowie painting and a small Yoko Ono piece. Friendly staff .

We were not overly comfortable in this area. Many homeless and countless folks asking for money or whatever else we may have. We wouldn't do it again.

The artwork is very colorful. Enjoyed it but it is a little too complicated for us. Enjoyed the meal in their restaurant.
