The ground floor foyer

Foyer and Bar

The entrance foyer is windowed onto King St, ideal for small informal groups who wish to publicise meetings by being seen. The stair wall is perfect for picture display - artwork, posters, framed or unframed. Upstairs, the Balcony Bar offers more private space.

Our tiny coffee bar, with fridge and microwave, can serve hot and cold drinks and snacks.

We don’t have a licence - we found it was too expensive - but we’ll help serve your own refreshments.

Access

There are 2 car parks within 200m of the theatre; on the Links at the foot of Cumming St, and off the top of Harbour St, with a lane almost direct to the theatre door.
