Does the venue have disabled access?

The whole ground floor is wheelchair friendly and has ramps. However the cantina is a functioning bar and is on the first floor. Sadly the venue does not have elevators so the cantina is not accessible. HOWEVER, we will do everything we can to help disabled people up the stairs including those in wheelchairs if they sign a disclaimer to say this is done at their own risk and liability.
