Backstage Bar at Theater Square

Backstage Bar at Theater Square

The Backstage Bar at Theater Square is a favorite Cultural District hotspot for drinks, a quick bite to eat, live entertainment, and great company through the evening. It’s the perfect place to meet before a performance, or lounge after a show, or just a great gathering place with friends and colleagues. The Backstage Bar serves an outstanding list of premium wines, spirits, specialty drinks and beers to complement the fun and casual food menu and often features live entertainment with no cover charge.

We are open before and after shows. Or, stop by after work for Happy Hour (9–11 pm Tuesdays – Fridays). Often called a hidden treasure, you can enter the bar from behind the fountain in Katz Plaza, or through the main entrance to the Cabaret at Theater Square, under the Theater Square marquee.

Outdoor Dining
Weather permitting, The Backstage Bar offers al fresco dining along-side the soothing Katz Plaza fountain and the breezy Linden trees. If you haven’t visited The Backstage Bar, summer is the perfect time to discover this delightful outdoor setting.

Enjoy an eclectic mix of tapas, platters, entrées and desserts—which can be served quickly to meet curtain calls. View our Backstage Bar menu (PDF).

The Cultural District just got a little more interesting! Along with great food and drinks, the Backstage Bar often features entertainment before and after shows downtown. We invite you to stop in for live music (no cover charge) before or after a performa
