What does preferred seating with a reservation mean?

If you already have tickets for a show and you decide to make a dinner reservation with us, we’ll hold a table for you in the Green Room Pub and then walk you over to the venue side just before doors officially open, giving you a head start on where you’d like to post up for the evening. Reservations must be made at least an hour before doors are scheduled. Preferred seating doesn’t mean reserved seating so we don’t hold tables for you in the music venue. You can come eat, drink and hang out in the Green Room Pub anytime we’re open. Door time is the earliest we allow access to the music venue.

Do you serve food on the venue side?

You bet!

What time does the band I want to see start?

Set times vary but the first band listed is the headliner and usually plays last.

What’s the earliest I can come to the venue?

You can come eat, drink and hang out in the Green Room Bar anytime we’re open. Door time is the earliest we allow access to the music venue

If I leave the venue, can I come back in?

Yup, just make sure you have either a wrist band or a stamp before you leave so we know you already paid
