Please be aware that there’s only one entrance to the venue and there are 20 stairs and no lift. We also have a very strict no pets policy in the venue (sorry furry friends). Sub Zero has its own simplified bar snacks menu, so if you’d like something a bit more substantial you might want to book a table in our bar before your show starts.
