We went here to the Punch Brother's concert. The music was excellent, but not the venue. I was expecting a typical concert venue, but it's really some kind of very old theatre with stepped platforms, not a nice slope. The seats were just folding chairs...More

I recently saw Marillion at the Royal Oak Theater and enjoyed every minute of it. Royal Oak is an older theater tastefully decorated. The show I saw had a mix of seating and general admission standing in the front. Behind the standing room general admission...More

I would call the venue for the specific event and how the promoter booked the ROMT seating.

A good restaurant near Royal Oak Music Theatre (4 Replies)
Hi, I am going to a concert at ROMT, and would like to go to a pretty decent restaurant near the theatre. I know there are many many restaurants, so I am trying to narrow it down to : within walking distance, possibly where I can leave my car for the duration of the concert, sit down table service. If you can suggest a place please let me know...Thanks

Right across from the theatre, there is a Spanish restaurant with a nice menu and atmosphere and usually a lively crowd. Restaurant's name is Sangria. Parking garage is inexpensive and only one block away. Here is the link to the restaurant: www.sangriaroyaloak.com. I've eaten there a number of times for lunch and dinner and have always been happy with the menu variety, the food and the service.

My husband and I will be traveling to the Royal Oak Music Theatre for a concert. Are there any decent hotels or motels close by to the Theatre? Karen

Depending on the class level you prefer, there are a few, though none within walking distance of the theater. Within a few miles' drive are several national-chain hotels like Red Roof, Comfort, Knights, Hampton, etc. There are a few clustered around the Dequindre Rd. exit off of the I-696 highway (about 3-4 miles east of Royal Oak), and there are also a number of them clustered around Oakland Mall, about 4 miles to the northeast. There's really nothing WITHIN the city limits of Royal...More
