KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Dining


A buffet is served before each performance (priced at about $21.95 - $29.95, subject to change, and not included with your show ticket). Reservations are recommended, but not required; call 214-413-3940. Dining at the Music Hall opens two hours before performances. Lighter fare is available at the bistro and is more moderate in cost. Bars are set up in the lobby areas, and drinks are allowed into the theatre at the discretion of the presenter. Currently food may not be taken into the theatre.


Dress


Music Hall patrons are usually clothed in a wide range of outfits including business suits, business casual attire, dressy dresses, short summer dresses, as well as jeans. Dress does tend to 'spiff' up during the holiday season, however.


Getting There


For the majority of the year, parking is available without an additional charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Enter the Fairgrounds at Grand Avenue or as directed by parking attendants. Should you instead choose to ride the rail, the DART green line drops passengers off right at the front gate of Fair Park. Just hop off the train at the Fair Park station, walk through the gate, and veer to the right. The Music Hall is right there within very short walking distance (even if you are dressed up or in high heels). See additional parking information, directions, and Fair Park map.
