Bars at the NCH

We have four bars situated within the building offering a full selection of wines, champagne, spirits, beers juices and soft drinks. Bars open 90 minutes hours prior to Main Stage concerts. Relaxed casual seating areas are available where tables can be reserved for pre-ordered beverages for larger parties.

For interval drinks we offer a pre-pay and collect service which allows for a relaxing time during that 20 minute break without the need to queue up again and waste time from meeting with friends and family. Interval beverages are ordered and paid from any bar (nearest your auditorium seats works best) prior to the concert and a ticket numbering system operates to inform you where to collect your beverages.
