Drinks in the Auditorium - New Pilot Program

SF Ballet, SF Opera, and SF Symphony are experimenting during the first six months of 2017 with allowing audiences to enjoy beverages in the auditorium. Many other venues across the country have adopted similar policies to help enhance the onsite experience. Audience members may bring drinks purchased in the venue into the auditorium, as long as they are in the approved compostable cup with lid, which will be available at all bars in the War Memorial Opera House and Davies Symphony Hall. All three performing arts organizations will meet regularly to monitor this pilot effort and will decide following the six-month trial period, whether or not to continue the program. As always, ushers and staff will work to ensure that patrons have a safe and enjoyable experience.

We want your feedback, so look for a survey in your post-performance email and let us know what you think. Patrons may also contact Ticket Services at 415 865 2000 or tickets@sfballet.org.
