Picnic areas at the theatre

Many of our patrons bring their own picnics to eat in one of our four beautiful covered picnicking spaces: The East Deck, The Dutch Garden Lounge, The Mezzanine or The Terrace.

If you choose to bring your own picnic and eat onsite you must pre-book a table in one of these areas


Enjoy a drink at Opera Holland Park

Theatre Bar

Our onsite bar is open both before the performance and during the interval, offering a selection of drinks and snacks. 

Here at Opera Holland Park we are taking further action to improve our green practices and reduce waste during the festival season:

  • We have banned any single use plastic bottles from being sold at our Main Bar and Members’ Bar.
  • No single use plastic glasses or straws will be used for the drinks service.
  • The price of the sparkling and still wines and any spirit mixers will include a reusable festival glass which you are welcome to take home with you/keep as a souvenir.
  • You are also very welcome to bring your own wine glasses in order to support the crucial change and reduce waste.
  • We will have free water refill stations available on site, therefore we would like to encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottles.

The Ensemble VIP Bar

The Ensemble provides a space where we can spend time with our supporters and other special guests.

Before each performance and during the interval, we invite Envoys, Ambassadors, Benefactors, Founders, major donors and their guests to enjoy a complimentary drink. We are delighted to welcome Supporters and up to three additional guests at any one time. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to bring a larger party, and we will check availability.
