All shows are 21+.


Instead of a drink minimum, we have a two-item per person minimum in the Showroom, which can be fulfilled with any food or drink items from the menu.

Please Note: Food and drinks purchased in the bar and lounge do not count towards the two-item minimum. Additionally, for parties of 6 or more in the showroom, an automatic 20% gratuity will be added to the bill.


  • General Admission seating is assigned on a first-come, first-sat basis as you enter the showroom. The earlier you arrive, the better your seats will be.

  • Reserved seats are assigned for you by management on the night of the show. They are the best seats available for your party size at the time they are assigned.

Please Note: We do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee seats in a specific location.


  • While we cannot guarantee seats together, General admission groups should arrive at least 1 hour before showtime and enter the showroom as a group for the best chance of being seated together.

  • Reserved groups who purchase tickets in a single order will be automatically assigned seating together. Reserved ticket holders who purchase separately are not guaranteed seating together. Please see your email confirmation for details if your group purchased separately.

Please Note: We will only seat complete General Admission groups. Your group must enter the showroom together to be seated together. In addition, we do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee you seats in a specific location.


All sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges.


Yes. Call our box office for more information. We encourage all patrons who have a disability to reach out to us to make accommodations.
