Since it shares a common entrance with the Commerz section of the building it will enjoy footfalls from this target audience while its access from the Hotel Lobby will allow in house guests to enjoy the Prego experience as well. The location of the restaurant will allow it to have its own external entrance and individual identity, as if it were an independent outlet.
