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.

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 Lobby Bar is stocked with a range of light meal options, so you no longer need to worry about where you can get a quick meal before the show. The range varies, but can include:

  • Sushi boxes
  • Salads
  • Wraps
  • Muffins
  • Banana Bread
  • Sandwiches (popular favourites!)

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.
