Enjoy a drink or snack pre-show!
The Frankston Arts Centre bar is centrally located in the main theatre building and opens 1.5 hours prior to performances.
We offer two dining choices to complete the ultimate theatre experience: over the bar (light meals), or a pre-show cocktail party (available only at selected shows).
Remember to avoid the queues by pre-ordering your interval drinks and snacks. Simply fill out an order form and pay at the bar prior to the performance - your refreshments will be waiting near the bar for you to collect at interval.
Pre-Show Cocktail Parties and Dining
Pre-Show Cocktail Parties
On selected Season Shows this year we will be offering guests a pre-show cocktail party with special-themed food. This is the perfect way to enjoy your theatre experience - be treated to a complimentary arrival drink and then a delicious menu of canapés to set the scene. You can mingle with other theatre guests or claim a seating area to catch up with friends.
Pre-show cocktail parties are available for the below upcoming shows. You can book online or phone 03 9784 1060.
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra: Messiah by Handel - Thursday 15 December, 7pm
Over The Bar
Enjoy a quick bite, or a glass of wine or beer before the show. Choose from a range of seasonal antipasto or cheese platters to share, or try some of our various faster food options. Our menus change regularly to showcase local seasonal produce - the perfect accompaniment to a fabulous show, all conveniently located under the one roof!
The kitchen and bar opens one hour before each show commences, so why not plan to arrive early and take advantage of the opportunity to relax and enjoy your pre-show refreshments.
