Eat, drink, & be merry

The amphitheater is surrounded by fragrant eucalyptus groves and great views. Make a plan to come early and enjoy dinner and drinks with your friends. Pack a picnic or visit our onsite cafe and bar, find a seat, and relax before your show! Don’t forget–you can bring food and drink into the amphitheater, so no need to rush.

COVID-19 Protocols
Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is required. Masks are required when not actively eating and drinking.


This grove has an ADA accessible picnic area. Other accessible eating areas include our Plaza.


The most private and peaceful of the groves is also the one that’s best for large groups to meet. The picnic tables are shaded by eucalyptus and features a fabulous view of the Amphitheater and the Orinda hills.


Featuring picnic tables in your choice of shade or sun during the day. The North Star Grove’s crowning jewel is Bruce Johnson’s North Star sculpture with a seat allowing you to peer through a hole and view the North Star at night.


The Plaza is an ADA accessible paved area with cafe tables, located close to the restrooms and Amphitheater.


Skip the stress of packing your own picnic, or supplement your dinner with a warm hot chocolate. Enjoy our onsite café food provided by Classic Catering.


Grab a beer, wine, or bevvy. Better yet, have special show-themed cocktail at our bar.


Take a seat at our Community Table! Sit down for chat, or just for some food & drink at the near by cafe & bar.
