Snack & Beverage Options at DPAC

Guest First - Pre-Order Drink Service

DPAC offers pre-order drink service for all shows with an intermission. Pre-pay for your favorite beverage before the show begins, and there is no waiting in line during intermission. Guests get a ticket number and can easily find their drink of choice on designated lobby tables at intermission time.

Offered at:
  • Grand Tier Lobby (Backstage Bar/Encore Café)
  • Orchestra Lobby (Stage Door Bar/Applause Café)

Designated Driver Program – Responsibility Matters

The Designated Driver Program is designed to ensure guests a safe trip home from DPAC events. Guests who pledge not to drink alcoholic beverages during the event may sign up at Guest Services Window and are eligible for a complimentary fountain soft drink or water. 

Come early, and enjoy snacks and beverages in the BlueCross BlueShield of NC Atrium, our dramatic three-story glass-walled lobby. For most shows, our menu will feature soft drinks, coffee, bottled water, mixed drinks, wine by the glass plus a full selection of premium American, specialty, craft and import beers. Snack menus include a wide variety of candy, chips and even freshly baked cookies. Plus there is never a need to rush since snacks and beverages are welcome in the seating area for most shows.
