Dining + Concerts

Q: How many stages does the Music Box have?

A: Two: an upstairs Concert Hall and our downstairs Club. Both places serve a full menu of food and drinks before and during shows.

Q: I’m coming to a show at the Music Box. Should I also make a dinner reservation?

A: The answer is yes if your tickets are for a show in the Supper Club downstairs. No, if your tickets are for a show in the Concert Hall upstairs. Dinner reservations are required for parties of two or more downstairs in the Supper Club. Please note: If you are attending a Concert Hall show and would like to eat in the Supper Club we ask that you allow for a 90-minute dining experience. If you would like to eat in the Concert Hall, you can dine right in your ticketed seat. There is no additional reservation required. Last call to dine in your seats in the Concert Hall will be at intermission. Tableside beverage service will continue throughout the concert.

Q: Wait—really? I’m able to come to the Music Box, snag a seat, and be able to eat dinner and hear great music? Without going anywhere?

A: Yes, really! You don’t have to move from the time you sit down until the time the music ends, and can order food and drinks right from your seat.

Q: How long before the music starts may I sit down and order food?

A: Unless otherwise noted, doors open two hours prior to show time for both Concert Hall and Supper Club shows.
