We went to the restaurant to see Tempest, our favorite Celtic rock group. It was a small venue, but nice. We had to climb stairs because they don't seem to have an elevator.

The nearest center is at the Sacramento center 2230 Del Paso Road. That said, I think the Cozmic zcafe would be a very good meeting place for locals. You should contact the management or staff.
