What is the Shakespeare Tavern®?

The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse is unlike other theaters. It is a place out of time; a place of live music, hand-crafted period costumes, outrageous sword fights with the entire experience centered on the passion and poetry of the spoken word. With a Ready To Eat Café-Style Menu and a broad selection of Irish ales and premium brews, the Shakespeare Tavern® is a place to eat, drink, and nourish the soul. Read what our actors, directors and staff have to say about the work we do at The Shakespeare Tavern® on our Community Blog.. Watch the video below for a complete look at the Tavern Experience!

ASC is a true gem in our community. They not only provide year-round quality theatre, but their Educational opportunities are wondrous. We started taking our daughter to shows when she was 5 and at 15 she remains a huge fan, as do her many friends.

The Tavern continues to draw us in. We love to attend the plays and be drawn back into a world so rich in language, plot, emotion and themes. What a wonderful resource for people of all ages, a touchstone for those interested in literature, drama, history and art.

I have been to over 90 countries and across all those locations, The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse has become my favourite place to spend an evening.
