And its owned by Americans It opened the year I first moved there and I went every year to see some shows and have a meal until I left. I'd suggest it as a night out where you can see some good comedy improv, eat good food and spend an enjoyable evening. Check out there site and book in advance to be on the safe side.

It is. Well, that and trams.
A few rules to stick to no matter what
Never walk in a bike lane. You run the risk of being yelled at or worse, mown down.
When getting off a tram, don't even begin to think of attempting to cross the tracks until it has pulled away and you can see both ways clearly. I say this as trams, taxis, buses and bikes also use the tram lanes. I've seen people get clipped by a tram and even that isn't pretty. And taxis and bikes tear along behind the trams or nip across to save time and its left to the pedestrian to be on the alert for them coming along.
