Parking and transport

The Civic Car Park is a short walk from The Civic, making it a great option for attending shows there. It is important, however, to remember that sometimes all our venues are filled with events. Make sure you have a backup parking plan. 

As of July 2021, paper tickets are no longer required at The Civic Carpark. When you drive in, your licence plate number will be scanned and the gate will open. Once you're ready to leave, you can pay by entering your licence plate number via the AT Park app (note, you may need to make payment prior to entering the underground area to remain in range of cell phone service) or via a payment machine. Once your payment has been made, simply drive straight out. 

Visit our Parking and Transport page for more information.


Eating and drinking

You can enjoy a pre-show drink in the theatre bar, or for something a bit more substantial, visit Stark’s Café and Bar. Stark’s offers special show-themed cocktails, as well as Caffe L’Affare coffee, tea, and cold drinks. If you’re headed to The Civic for a matinee, you can also enjoy cabinet food such as filled baguettes, croissants, and bagels. It’s a great place to visit for a  showtime treat.

The Civic lift

The Civic was built in 1929 and while it’s a gorgeous building, we know that the foyer spaces can be a bit of a maze. There is a lift available, but it can be difficult to find. We suggest you ask one of our team to show you where it is located as soon as you arrive. They'll be more than happy to help!
