Nighttown Tickets and Seating Policy

To purchase tickets go here, Do not make an additional table reservation - it is already included with your purchased tickets.  All seats are General Admission.  All seating is based on the time that you arrive for the show and based on how many people are in your party and where we have tables of that size. You may be sharing a table with other people.

Nighttown Student Discount Policy
Students up to age 26 are 1/2 off the regular price.  Student priced tickets are only available the night of the show, are available only at the door, and are subject to availability.  Students must have a photo ID from a generally-recognized high school, college or university.  Full-paying ticket holders get priority on admission and seating.  Certain select shows have no discount based on arrangements with the artist.  On evenings when there are two shows (i.e. shows at 7 & 9PM), the discount is only good for the second show.  Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult paying full price in order to be eligible for the discount.
