Is this the space that’s been recently reopened as VIA’s private lounge for first class customers?

I don’t know but thought i’d pay a visit to have a look. The old Hamilton Rail station also had a great lunch counter (since removed).

I remember Liggett’s “lunch counter” at the southernmost
part of the departures level and could this photo be that
place? My memory of Liggett’s goes back to the ’50s and
I was in there only on one occasion.
The comment by Rick McGinnis probably refers to the
York Room–a dining room on the ground floor of Union
Station. It was a dining room with linens and china
and was not as brightly lighted as the above photo shows.
It was also licensed by LLBO.
