Tobacco Theater takes its name from the former tobacco auction house it occupies, and presents an eclectic program of dinner theater. The theater has made innovative use of the historic features of the old building, and given it an industrial makeover. The result is a striking blend of period features and contemporary accents. The theater sees a large international audience primarily due to its focus on English-language shows. While the dinner theater remains its primary activity, the theater also hosts workshops from cooking and cocktail mixing to wine tasting. The multitude of elegant spaces within the theater offer excellent opportunities for hosting private functions.
