The Burren bar next door is a great place to eat before the show. Also Pizza down the street.

Arrive early! It is a small space so all the seats are good seats but you really want to be in front.

There are a lot of good places to eat. We really enjoyed Rosebud Diner and it's a very short walk to the show.

While the MBTA (Davis Square/RedLine) is just two blocks away, there is also limited metered street parking outside the Rockwell. There is a tiny metered lot a couple blocks up on Elm and a larger metered lot on Herbert St. just a couple blocks away.

Davis Square is full of restaurants. We ate at the Burren, right upstairs from the Rockwell. Yummy burgers and chicken nachos, with creamy cheesecake for dessert.

Park a couple of blocks out of Davis Square on Holland or College Ave and enjoy free, easy street parking.

small bar, but great service. No one waited very long to be served. They had some amazing-looking cookies for sale, as well. We went to Redbones after.

The weather was a bit chilly. I wore a skirt and sweater. Keep in mind, there is no coat check..

Plenty of options for dining in Davis Square, and the theatre has a cash bar and allows drinks in the theatre.
