TYPES OF TICKETS

GENERAL ADMISSION

There are no bad views of our stage at The Vista, even if you are standing!  Often these are the best tickets if you want to be up close and personal with your favorite artist.  Be aware that holders of Standing Room -  Main Floor tickets have not purchased a seat and are not guaranteed a seat. This means that for sold out shows, holders of these tickets will likely be standing. If you want to assure the exclusivity and comfort of a reserved table at a show that is likely to sell out, we recommend purchasing a Reserved Table. 

RESERVED TABLES

Don’t like standing or bumping elbows, or maybe you want to take the worry out of fighting traffic to be early to get a table? Exclusivity may be for you! Reserved Table tickets provide ticket holders the option to have a table saved for you. When the doors open to our venue, your reserved table will be waiting for you. Please note, Reserved Table tickets must be purchased in groups of 4 or 6, as there are 4 or 6 seats per table. 

Food menu and full bar service available.  Outside food and drink may not be brought into the Vista Room.  

Please call us at 404-321-5000 for any questions before the show.

 

I bought 2 tables, can I get them together? Or can I put my table together with my friend's table?

Whenever we see names with 2 table purchases, we automatically put them together.  If you have friends or family going to the show, let us know by emailing eve@thevistaroom.com and we will do our best to make sure you are near/by each other.

Can I choose or switch my table upon arrival?

In order to be fair, the tables are chosen in the order in which they were purchased from the front of the stage to the back of the room, so get your tables early!  If you would prefer a table in the back, please email eve@thevistaroom.com.  If you need a low table, we must know that ahead of time.  Please email eve@thevistaroom.com if you need a low top or have any particular needs, and we will do our very best to meet them.
