The Harbour Club and 200 Level Club are located on the concourse and club levels of the former HSBC, now KeyBank Center, the home of the Buffalo Sabres. The food service spaces were designed to focus on harbor views to the west, and downtown views to the north, through 25-foot-high windows fronting on Main Street. Inside the Harbour Club, on the concourse level, the circulation spine and curvilinear shape of the wall represent the movement of a river and draws the eye from the dining area towards the Inner Harbor. The space has tall ceilings, with bold colors and stainless “skate blade” steel shapes.

In contrast, the 200 Level Club on the club level, is a radial-shaped, food station Marche-style restaurant, and is open directly toward the arena bowl. This allows patrons to view events while dining. A balcony also overlooks the Harbour Club below, and provides a spectacular view of the restaurant, the Main Street trolley, and the Inner Harbor.
