Accessibility and Accommodations


There's often more to a trip to the theatre than just getting to the show. If you're looking for a place to grab a bite beforehand or if you're coming in from out of town, you might want a place to rest your head afterwards.

Here are just a few restaurants and hotels near The Loft Theatre and beyond to help your plan your trip. We strongly recommend you contact restaurants and hotels in advance for reservations and hours of operation.
