On weekends there's live music, ranging from blues to rock to jazz to reggae. In addition to the 16 tables and bar on the main floor, there is outdoor seating on the deck and a patio overlooking the Thames. There's also a lower level with its own bar. The lower level or the entire space can be rented out for private parties. Hot Rod offers delivery via <a href="http://www.whydrive.biz/">www.whydrive.biz</a> and it also caters events.
