Food & Drink at the Arts Complex
The Arts Complex offers a variety of food and drink choices on campus as well as in the immediate surrounding area. From casual grab 'n go, to upscale fine dining and a new lively hangout, you’re sure to find great options for pre-show, intermission and post-show dining.
NEW! Prelude + Post
Located across from the Buell Theatre, Prelude + Post emerges as a popular gathering place for theater attendees and downtown diners alike for dinner and drinks pre-show and post-show. Aside from the theatre, the lively space serves as an ideal place to indulge in a nightcap. In lieu of having a three-course, prix fixe pre-theater menu, the new menu features snacks, small plates and shareable larger plates promoting a more communal dining atmosphere.
Prelude + Post focuses on shared plates for a social dining experience with an emphasis on Colorado fresh sustainable ingredients; many seasonally harvested from the Blue Bear Farm located next door at the Colorado Convention Center. The 5,000 pounds of produce from Blue Bear is put to great use throughout the food and cocktail menus. The space is modern, approachable, comfortable and engaging and with an upscale casual neighborhood vibe.
PRO TIP: Grab drinks at Prelude + Post and bring them right to your seats in Boettcher Concert Hall, Buell Theatre or Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
For information about pre-show availability and reservations, call (720) 227-9984 or use OpenTable.

NEW! Under The Glass Top
Following the success of our summer pop-up happy hour in the Galleria, Under the Glass Top, moves inside during the colder months to the corner 14th Street and Curtis Street. Under The Glass Top is now open for business on performance days.

Stop by to see the new space and take a picture in front of the beautiful mural by local artist Patrick McGregor.
