SETTLE IN FOR THE NIGHT

Dinner Boxes

Dinner Boxes from neighbouring restaurants Long Chim and Indu are now available to order at evening performances at City Recital Hall. Dinner boxes can be purchased from our ground floor foyer bar and will be delivered straight to you in the foyer. Orders close approximately 40 minutes prior to the performance start time. Dinner boxes are unavailable on Sundays.

Sample menu can be viewed on this page. Please note that the menu is subject to change and you can view the current menu in our ground floor foyer on the night.

Enjoy a drink and a snack at the Hall before your show or at interval. Our bars open 90 minutes prior to the start of performances, offering a selection of light refreshments and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Light Meal Options

Our Bars are stocked with a range of snack and sandwich options.

Drinks

Our bars stock a wide range of wines, beers and spirits, as well as a selection of non-alcoholic beverages. You can now pre-order your interval drinks from any bar prior to the show and collect them from the ground level bar at interval. 

Alcoholic drinks can be purchased from the bar from 12pm. 

Please note, drinks are allowed in the auditorium at the discretion of each hirer. Please see front of house or bar staff for any information on the night. If drinks are allowed in the auditorium they will need to be decanted first and bar staff can also assist with this.
