The Venkman’s site says a show is sold out. Will you release more tickets?

Sometimes we do, but, again, that isn’t guaranteed. If a show is sold out, please give us a call and we’d be happy to put you on a waiting list.

I plan on purchasing a General Admission for the (insert show) show this weekend. I know seats are not guaranteed. Are the only options for seats in the bar? What time do you suggest arriving to have the best chance of a seat for the show that starts at 10p?

General admission does not guarantee a seat for a show. These late shows will however have limited seating along the kitchen bars and at the communal tables. So long as there isn’t a ticketed show prior to your event, we recommend arriving as early as an hour prior to showtime for your best chance at snagging a seat.

When do shows start?

Showtimes vary, for complete info check out our Shows tab.
