We had a delicious vegan meal at Gratitude just a half block away. Parking was ample in the underground space by the restaurant. It closed at 1 a.m. so we left our car there for the duration of the performance as well.
The weather was In the mid 60s. I wore Dressy sport outfit as did my Husband. It's fun to dress like a grown-up..
Lots of upscale places, including outdoor expensive cafes (its Bev Hills after all:) but a found a delightful cafe—Tramezza (spelling wrong)—low key, surprisingly reasonable prices, good services.
Parking is across the street which you cannot see if coming from north so drive past the theate and make a U turn to see the parking signs on the right at 450 Cresent Dr.
IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO HAVE A PARKING ATTENDANT SUPERVISE CARS LEAVING THE PARKING LOT AFTER THE PERFORMANCE ENDS, ESPECIALLY WITH STREET CLOSURES ETC
It's the holidays in Beverly Hills so I recommend walking down Beverly & Rodeo to look at the light installations by the Montage & Two Rodeo if you have time!
The Wallis is a beautiful space and no seat is a bad one. You don't even have to buy the best seats.
If you don't want to pay for parking at the Wallis, there is a row of parking meters parallel to Santa Monica Boulevard which are free after 6:00 PM and only a 1-1/2 block walk.
There's a small cafe in the center but I didn't go in it. Various restaurants around the area such as The Cheesecake Factory which was is a 7 minute walk from center.
For a quick casual bite to eat, Mulberry Pizza is a block and a half away on Canon Drive.

parking easy underground garage, fixed cost said it was $8 but nice surprise on exiting the cost was reduced to $5 for all.
I thought I would save a penny by parking at the B Hills parking lot on Crescent. I didn't.
Share anything else here. Just start typing... ONE ADDED TIP: This is an ensemble show filled with music from many different eras and in many different styles. The musicians start playing well before the show officially starts, so it's worth getting there early to catch the pre-show musical fun and get in the spirit of anything-goes that permeates this production and the inclusive vision of this extraordinary company.
Valet parking is $18 and public parking is $8. Public parking is great. The venue was beautiful. There is some construction. The actors are AMAZINGLY talented. You must go. The history is portrayed where it's not so serious as it really was.
