About Hobby Center

Hobby Center for the Performing Arts

The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is an entertainment theater in downtown Houston, located in the city’s theater district. The venue opened in 2002 and was named after former Houston businessman and Texas lieutenant governor William Hobby. It contains two theaters, with Sarofim Hall being the primary venue designed with touring Broadway productions in mind. As a result, the Hobby Center has hosted shows like Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King, and Phantom of the Opera

Where are the Best Places to Sit at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts

The Center Orchestra Section is the best place to see a performance at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. While the left and right sections of the Orchestra Section also put visitors close to the stage, it sometimes creates an acute angle, whereas the center of the Orchestra Section delivers a straight-ahead view of the stage. However, keep in mind that there are over 40 rows of the Orchestra Section, so the rows toward the back may not offer as good of a view of the performance. That makes the center Mezzanine section a viable alternative, as it offers a little elevation to give visitors a full view of the stage.

Tips for Visiting the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts

Visitors to the Hobby Center should know that the doors to the venue open 90 minutes before every show, with seating beginning 30 minutes before the show. However, the venue suggests arriving at least 45 minutes early so that you can park, go through security, and find your seat without the risk of being late. The Hobby Center Garage provides convenient self-parking for visitors. There are also other parking options in the area and valet parking available in front of the venue’s main entrance.

Food to Try at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts

In addition to snacks and beverages, there are two restaurants located inside the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts for visitors to eat a full meal before a show. The Diana American Grill is a more up-scale option with over half a dozen entree options, including rainbow trout, beef bolognese, and grilled tenderloin. The Grand Bistro Lobby is also located inside the venue, offering sandwiches, salads, and a few hot meals for a quicker, less formal dining experience.
