Great place for pre-theatre drinks and light meals. The Beef Brisket taco was superb. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Not a big choice of main meals (and a bit $$) but the place is great for small tasting plates.

The best place to hang out before an event in The Arts Centre. Extensive bar with great service, food available, lots of seating, inside & out. Only open in an evening I believe. We always visit before & after a show!

The decor is divine, the wine list more the adequate and the food choices perfect for pre or post show dining.

Delicious food. Nice comfortable corners for groups to sit quietly in. Friendly quick service. Tall bar tables, outdoor tables in good weather - caters well for a small group or couples, and for a quick drink or a meal before a show. Usually busy but...More

This was our first visit to Curve Bar and thoroughly enjoyed. Unique menu and food deliciously presented. Efficient and attentive staff makes it a great venue for pre-show dining. My only comment would be that the lighting is a bit too low, can be challenging...More
