Eating and drinking

To ensure your time in our venues is spent with your friends & whānau and enjoying the show we are now cashless in all our bars, cafes and box office.  Going cashless means, we can speed up our customer service and avoid patrons waiting in queues. Thank you for your ongoing support and feel free to contact us at – if you require any further information.


The Bruce Mason Centre is at the heart of Takapuna’s dining district. There are plenty of options close by for a delicious pre-show meal. You can also enjoy a drink and snack at our theatre bar — a great reason to arrive early to the show!
