Rickshaw Stop s a 4000 square-foot (including 1000 sq ft mezzanine) former TV studio, with full bar and food service. High ceilings, giant red curtains, and vintage rickshaws afford a quirky coziness to the space, which includes foosball and Skeeball tables, a balcony, and for certain events, a coat check and upstairs bar.
