Park at Sutter/Stockton garage and walk about 5 blocks to theater. Easy peasy.
The Playhouse had alcohol and some light snacks for sale before the show, and if you want something more substantial some of the city's best restaurants are within easy walking distance. If you're looking for something less expensive and more casual there are also a couple good brew-pubs on the surrounding blocks.
Happy to find free street parking right outside the theater -- but we arrived on the early side.
Have a nice Italian dinner at Fino's in the Andrews Hotel a block away.
Public transportation is a good choice for the theater location near Union Square.
Park at Sutter Stockton garage. Nice little bar in the theater lobby if you get there early. (And you can take drinks into the theater.)
Powell Street BART is just a short walk away. Much better than getting into crazy traffic.
Park at Sutter parking lot (@ Stockton) $2/hr. In evenings. My wife and I enjoy dressing nicely when we go out but are shocked at how “casual “ San Francisco has become. In other words, anything goes.
the farallon restaurant next door has a really good happy hour til 6pm
I was over at Yerba Buena Gardens and ate at Lemons. It was really good and fast. You order from the counter and sit down to eat. I had a sushi dish and stir-fried Brussels sprouts. Both were yummy. I had some lemon-aid also it was really good.
This theater is only a few blocks from BART. Park at your local BART station, go to Powell St. Station, and avoid the hassles of traffic and parking.
Parking at Sutter-Stockton garage ~ $15 for afternoon performance. Spirits and snacks reasonably priced during their "happy hour"
great dining at farmerbrown's within walking distance. happy hour menu($5.) no early crowds(can always eat at bar, if need be)
