At Keys, you are welcome to dine in our Lounge area without a reservation. In order to dine in the Listening Room you can purchase a ticket through our online reservation system or at the door. The Lounge and The Listening Room open at 6pm for dinner service if you’d like to arrive early to dine before or during the show.

What is a Listening Room?

Traditionally, a Listening Room is an intimate performance space intended for just that… listening! Our intent is that the attention be focused on the artists performing, and that the music not be relegated to backgroud music for conversation and dining. We ask that you keep all conversation to a minimum and welcome you into the bar area if you’d like to converse.

Are seats assigned?

We seat the room on a first come, first serve basis. If you have a group that would like to sit together, we ask that at least half of your party is here before heading into the Listening Room. Please Note, when fully booked, every seat will have a guest which may require sharing of tables. Arrive early to ensure your seat.
