One of the most exciting moments of going to the theatre is those minutes just before you take your seat. QPAC’s foyer bars are always brimming with anticipation, and what better place to gather with friends and get ready for the show. Our theatre bars offer a great selection of sparkling and still wines, beers and ciders, spirits, and an ever-changing cocktails menu. Drinks may be consumed while seated in the foyer or in the theatre.
