Eating and Drinking
Save time and book your drinks in advance!
We are pleased to now be able to offer our customers the ability to pre-order interval drinks for selected shows. Beat the queue at the bar and purchase drinks in advance either via our mobile app or online using the button below. Simply order, pay and your drinks will be waiting for you at clearly marked collection points at intervals or where there is no interval, pre-show.
Symphony Hall Café Bar
The Level 3 (Ground Floor) bar at Symphony Hall offers hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks from 10am through to concert time, everyday, except Sundays when it is open from 12 noon.
Foyer bars are open an hour before the start of most concerts and stay open for the interval. For some concerts the bar on Level 3 remains open post-concert.
The Coffee Bar is situated in the main foyer and opens two hours before a concert along with the building. There is free Wi-Fi at Town Hall with any purchase from the Coffee Bar. The circle and lower bars open an hour before a concert. For selected concerts the Lower Bar remains open post-concert.
Please note there are some events (e.g. Education/Community Programme events) where the bars will not be open.
Treat yourself during the interval with our special mini refreshments hamper. For only £17.50 each, the hamper includes a Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Sandwich (or a Double Egg & Spinach Sandwich), a slice of delicious Lemon Drizzle Cake and a mini bottle of champagne. Pre-booking is essential so please complete and return the order form (download from the link to the left) to Symphony Hall Catering, Symphony Hall, Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2EA or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org..
