Never Been To A Hi Hat Entertainment Dinner Show?

Here’s what to expect. . .

What time is the show?

The Restaurant opens at 5:00pm. Doors for the show opens at 6:30pm.  The show starts at 8:00pm – 9:00pm with a brief intermission and from 9:30 – 10:30pm. Ending at 10:30pm. When there is an encore for your favorite bands, the show will end at approximately 10:45.

What do I get when I pre-purchase a ticket?

If you pre-purchase a ticket you will be guaranteed a preassigned, reserved table seat waiting for you when you arrive, UNLESS the show is SOLD OUT. In that case you will be seated in the order you purchased your tickets. The earlier the better! 

** if you purchase your ticket the day of the show we can NOT guarantee you seating.** You will be guaranteed standing room.  

I’ve pre-purchased a ticket but can I sit with my friends at the show?

If you’d like to sit with a particular party who have also pre-purchased tickets  or an area of the room just add a note during check-out on “Instruction to Merchant”  or send us an email – –  and we’ll DO OUR BEST to accommodate you but can not guarantee.

Please be aware we seat the room according to the date tickets are purchased. If you bought your tickets ten days in advance you will get much better seating… but your friends bought their tickets one day in advance  and you request to be seated together, you will be seated according to when the latter is purchased..

Does my show ticket include a dinner?

No. Show tickets are separate from dinner at the HONG KONG INN. We are two separate businesses. The cover charge pays for the amazing bands we hire. 

Can I have dinner during the show?

Yes. Dinner is served until 11:00pm, at which time the kitchen will close.

Where will we park?

There is a free public parking lot behind the Hong Kong Inn, and behind that – across Santa Clara Street and another across Oak Street and street parking, and another on California and Thompson at the surf shop.
