So we paid for parking ahead of time. $40 to use the lot at the Hotel Whitcomb. You can enter/exit thru the Hotel and the Orpheum is right in front of you. There's a Starbucks connected to the hotel as well. Lastly, get to the theatre early so you can get your souvenirs, drink and use the ladies restroom before the long line starts.
La Cuisine Cafe is across the street. Food was fresh and delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Menu includes sandwiches, salads and coffees. We had lunch before the performance.
BART is the way to go. It provides front door service to the Orpheum Theater.
Check out Tu Lan on 6th and Market! Best "hole in the wall" eatery. If it was good enough for Julia Child, then you'll love it:-).
If you are coming from the south bay, park at Daly City BART and take the BART train into Civic Center - very convenient.
Park underground at the Civic Center.
Go to the Proper Hotel 7th and Market-= grab a lite bite at their rooftop bag Charmaine's- great views , wonderful cocktails Enjoy!
Check out 54 Mint for a great dinner before the show. It’s an easy walk to the theater.
The show lasts 3 hours including intermission, so eat before unless you like to dine after 10:00 pm. If you do, there are many restaurants within walking distance. However, many of the better options close by 10:00 pm, so check hours first
The Civic Center station is only steps away from the theatre entrance and is serviced by MUNI and BART.
The weather was Cool as summer in San Francisco predictably is.. I wore I wore a skirt and blouse with a jacket (which I was glad to have when we left the theatre!...Dress ranged from casual street clothes. .
or, add your own...at 50 Eighth Street
