816 The Kennedy Center - Opera House Tips
The weather was A wonderful autumn evening. I wore I was dressed too warm for the auditorium...a turtle neck, slacks and a sweater. .
I wore A jacket and dress pants. It is the Kennedy Center and I did not want to be a slob..
We had salads for lunch at the Kennedy Center Café on the Terrace level. It is a bit pricey there. Eating at home or after the show are probably better options.
I wore jeans. No one dresses for the theater anymore, especially for a matinee..
The best way to get to the Kennedy Center is to take the Metro to the Foggy Bottom Station and then take the shuttle to and from the venue. We took the Blue Line from Springfield, where parking is free on weekends, and got there in plenty of time even with the Saturday track repair issues.
write down where you parked so you can find your car after the play
The Ken Cen provides snacks and drinks for purchase, but you can also try a drink with a GREAT VIEW at the new Top of the Gate (rooftop bar of the next-door Watergate Hotel).
I wore casual clothes. It was a rainy day, and we were attending an afternoon performance..
We tried to get to the Kennedy Center by Metro, and that proved to be problematic because of track work on Sundays. We ended up taking an Uber from the Braddock Road Metro Station in Alexandria. The trip home was a lot smoother.
Park at event parking on New Hampshire, across the street from KC. Cheaper and easier.

Eat at Campono, right across the street.

Parking is too expensive for this venue. Better - Metro and shuttle. even if you have to leave earlier since the Metro is so unreliable these days.
The weather was getting cold! but the shuttle took care of that problem!. I wore dressy - not formal. Many people were dressed up festive etc. .
eat across the street; use valet parking for $10 plus tip or park in that garage for $12. Easy breeze in and out!
Sign on to the parking pre-order site to save $3 off the $23 parking fee. https://www.kennedycenterparking.com/
KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".
