About Backstage Bar

Please Note: The Backstage Bar is temporarily closed for renovation, set to reopen in 2023.

The Backstage Bar at Theater Square is a favorite Cultural District hotspot for drinks, a quick bite to eat, live entertainment, and great company through the evening.  It's the perfect place to meet before a performance, lounge after a show, or gather with friends and colleagues. The Backstage Bar serves an outstanding list of premium wines, spirits, specialty drinks and beers to complement the fun and casual food menu and often features live entertainment with no cover charge. We are open before and after shows.

From the corner of the building under the screen, you can either go straight to enter through the Greer Cabaret Theater doors on Penn Avenue, or simply pass the elevator shafts to walk down the path between the WQED Carol M.
