3Arena & Bord Gáis Pre-Theatre Dinner

Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane is a short stroll from Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and 3Arena, the perfect place to enjoy a pre-theatre bite to eat and signature cocktail.

Pre-Theatre Dining Options

Bord Gais Energy Theatre is a 2-minute walk from our front doors ensuring you do not have to worry about missing the start of the show. The 3Arena is a 15-minute (1.3km) walk, you can even catch the Luas part of the way two stops from Spencer Dock.

Located on the mezzanine level, enjoy the light and airy space. The pre-theatre menu offers a variety of dishes using ingredients from local and Irish suppliers. Our chef has designed the menu with dishes that are incredibly tasty but can be prepared quickly. This ensures you and your guests dine in comfort, knowing you are a short walk away from the show. There is a children’s menu available and we can cater for any dietary requirements.
