There are no food or drinks at the theater, but there are many restaurants and bars all around the area. Go early to get a parking space and have dinner or a drink.
Depending on when you go, parking could be hard to find. There are many free city lots, and street parking, but at peak tourist season it would be a good idea to get there early.
Parking can be time consuming, street parking is limited but several parking lots for Old Town are an easy 2 min walk from the theater.
The weather was evening cool and air conditioned.. I wore Slacks and nice shirt, it is that kind of place in my opinion..
We had no trouble finding nearby free parking on the street @ about five o'clock on Saturday afternoon. Might be harder to find as the evening progresses.
Have appetizers and drinks @ Christopher's on Congress which is in the courtyard of the theater. Great food and you may take your drinks into the theater! Arrive early and hang out--happy hour is from 3 to 6!
The weather was warm and sunny. I wore Dress shirt and dockers--anythinv would be okay, but why not class it up a bit, hmmm?.
Arrive in the area early. Parking is at a premium since the stage is located near Old Town.
Plan to enjoy the wine bar/restaurant next door either before or afterwards and enjoy the outside patio with friends. Also, Rockin' Baja Lobster close by for before or after show food/drinks, as well. Heartily recommend these shows!
wine bar next to the venue! come early to purchase a glass of wine.
San Diego Scot
Only about 100 yards from Rockin' Baja Lobster. Nice little bar right next to the theatre, with comfortable seating. You can bring the drink into the performance (though there's nowhere to set it down, which makes applauding a bit tricky)
Or, add your own...Try Christopher for dinner before the show. Adjacent to Red Spade
