Hall Amenities

Home of the San Francisco Symphony since it first opened in 1980, Davies Symphony Hall offers a host of amenities to concert-goers, from in-house dining and beverage services to behind-the-scenes tours and unique shopping experiences.

Drinks in the Hall—Pilot Program: January–June 2017

Starting January 2017, SF Ballet, SF Opera, and SF Symphony will launch a pilot program offering audiences the chance to enjoy beverages at their seats during select performances. Many venues across the country have adopted similar policies to help enhance the in-hall experience. Audience members may bring drinks purchased in the venue to their seat, as long the drinks are in approved compostable cups covered with a lid, which will be available at all bars in both the War Memorial Opera House and Davies Symphony Hall. All three performing arts organizations will meet regularly to monitor this initiative during the six-month trial period.

The San Francisco Symphony welcomes all patron feedback, and staff will work to ensure that patrons have a memorable and enjoyable concert experience. Patron Services staff is available in the Box Office during working hours (Monday–Friday 10am–6pm, noon–6pm Saturday, and 2 hours prior to concerts on Sunday), at 415-864-6000, or patronservices@sfsymphony.org.

The Wattis Room offers an elegant dining experience for patrons, featuring a selection of seasonal fare from rising star chef Charlie Kleinman. Along with pre-show dining, the Wattis Room is also available to book for private events.
