  • Debrina reserved July 9, 2016

    The atmosphere and warm welcome was awesome, everyone at the Happenstance were so welcoming and accommodating to all of my many needs. The drinks at the bar were nice and affordable and you get exactly what you pay for. I hired part of the restaurant for my 25th birthday and everything was perfect. I could not ask for more :)
