This was a great setting for a much deserved after work outing. MVP's casual atmosphere lends to just chilling out, playing dominoes, having a cold drink and great food. The in-door out-door setting gives guests the best of both worlds, shade form the elements, but...More

Premium beverages probably refers to Scotch, Whisky and other top shelf liquor. Standard is probably red/white rum, red stripe beer and other local liquors. Hope this helps!
