I'm watching Cabaret tonight and 3 friends and I got a table in the orchestra! We just noticed the theater opens 1 hour prior to start of the show and am thinking of going there early to eat. The menu is here: http://www.roundabouttheatre.org/Roundabout/media/Roundabout/PDF/Cabaret_Table-Menu_3-5x9.75.pdf

Has anyone ever eaten at Studio54? Is it enough for dinner or would you recommend we get a real dinner first and just eat these as snacks during the show? Any cocktail that is a must? Any recommendation/suggestion would be much appreciated.

It's only appetizers, I'd go somewhere else. You can even eat at 54 below if you don't want to stray too far... they have a proper dinner menu.

Cool thanks! I think we'll do that then & just eat dessert at studio54 with a cocktail. I've never had any of these cocktails before but toast of Mayfair sounds good.

When I went my table had the cheese plate and a large pretzel. Both were fine- not amazing, but certainly added to the experience of being in the club. We had gotten there early so it was nice to relax and people watch before the show.

Then, right before the show started, a gentleman asked if he could buy us a round of drinks (anything we wanted) to switch seats with his friends that way they could be at the same table. The seats we switched ended up being better then our original seats plus we had some tasty drinks!

Way overpriced, and I don't know about everyone else, but drinking a cocktail out of a plastic sippy cup does not make me feel especially sophisticated. :)

I had to watch two in front of me dip their pretzel in mustard during the start of act II. I forgot I was in a "club" and was momentarily transported to Yankee stadium. Guess I'm lucky they don't sell tuna sandwiches.

Oh gross, they allow people to eat during the performance? I thought it was just a before the show kind of thing. Ugh.

Oh and to answer your question it would be nowhere near enough for dinner. Eat somewhere else before or after.

Also they tend to run out of stuff often. When I went my girlfriend went to get 2 bottles of water and a dessert plate, they were out of both, and offered up one of the plentiful cheese plates.

Yep. Not so cute. Also, it took my friend and me a good five minutes to get the lids off (we were trying to wash out the cups so we could bring them home). Evidently, they really don't want to risk any spills. I'm not sure all drinks come in these; we had mimosas during a Sunday matinee and they came in a shorter version of this:

Thank you! Just arrived back home and Andrea Goss was thrilling & amazing! Her rendition of "Maybe This Time" just blew us away. I saw Michelle Williams back in June and though Michelle has the better English accent, I liked Andrea's voice more. We're glad we didn't cancel our tickets for a later date just to see Michelle up close.
As far as the food, we didn't eat any at the kit kat club. We only ordered 2 cocktails (toast of mayfair and don't tell mama) and both were sweet. Toast of mayfair came in a small sippy cup and can definitely taste the alcohol whereas don't tell mama came in a tall sippy cup, with ice, and a bit diluted but sweet as well. 2 cocktails and 2 coffees cost $45!!! Ouch in my wallet for sure.

and the food is served in clear plastic clam shell containers (like in the deli), no plates.
