if its sensibly planned, down stairs will be unrestricted bar, some food, with the capacity refering to the upstairs area. or could be just the number under cover, the images suggest it'll be open sided so people come and go.
Yep that was my assumption (as the club aren't idiots), but not seen it officially stated anywhere. Perhaps this is a question/feedback that the Fan Advisory Board can take to the the club?
Also if it's replacing Dicks then I wouldn't expect to have to pay an admittance fee... sounded like PB has high hopes for this to ease some of the congestion getting away from the ground, and 1000 paying bums on seats probably wouldn't help a great deal.
