The perfect place to meet before the performance or at interval for a drink and a light snack.
Or indulge in a bite or beverage before or after your show at one of the many bars and cafe’s that Hawthorn has to offer. From Ramen to ribs, burritos to burgers, dumplings to donuts, you’ll find it all on our very own eat-street Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn.
KEW COURT HOUSE
Kew Court House is nestled in quite the unassuming but fabulous food and wine destination. Before or after your show, choose from a variety of casual and high end eateries and bars dotted along High Street and Cotham Road.
Kew Court House has a small tuck shop bar that boasts a lovely selection of refreshments and snacks. We cordially invite you and your friends to settle in pre-show and stick around afterwards to discuss all the best bits of the performance.
