Home to fantastic musical productions, late-night entertainment, live music, and outstanding food, the Cabaret at Theater Square in the heart of the Cultural District provides unique live music and theatrical performances year-round. The 260-seat venue features the adjacent Backstage Bar, which offers an outstanding list of premium wines, spirits, specialty drinks and beers to complement a casual food menu.
