Eating & Drinking
The Joan's got you sorted!
Grab a drink and unwind at our lovely Atrium Foyer before your show or at interval. Our bar is open 1 hour prior to the start of performances, offering a wide range of wines, beers and spirits as well as a selection of non-alcoholic drinks. Keep a look out for our occasional Cocktail of the Month too!
Please note, drinks are allowed in the auditorium at the discretion of each hirer. Please see our front of house or bar staff for any information on the night.
You can now also pre-order cheese platters at $15 to enjoy during the performance. We offer a vegetarian cheese board option and a non-vegetarian option that comes with deli meats.
