Arrival Time & Seating
Arrive early for the best possible experience. During the early months of the 2019-20 season, The Baker Museum Repair and Expansion Project will be in its final stages. The Hayes Hall lobby opens one hour before Hayes Hall performances and 30 minutes before events in Daniels Pavilion until construction is complete. For Hayes Hall events with a pre-concert prelude, the lobby will open 90 minutes before the performance.
Late to a performance? Please note that late seating occurs at the discretion of the performing artist and cannot be guaranteed. If permitted by the performer, late seating is directed by the house manager and takes place during pauses in the program. An usher will let you know when you may enter the hall. You may be seated in an area other than your ticketed seat so as to not disturb other patrons. If an intermission is scheduled, you may take your ticketed seat during intermission.
Due to construction for the repair and expansion of The Baker Museum, the cafe is now located at the west bar on the first floor of Hayes Hall. There are three other beverage bars located in the Hayes Hall lobby on the upper and lower levels, as well as a bar in the Daniels Pavilion. For faster service during intermissions, please preorder in person before the performance. Subscribers receive a 10% discount on food by showing their tickets.
We suggest business or casual business attire. The stereotype that you must dress formally (tuxedos, evening gowns, etc.) for a classical concert lives on, but only in cartoons and old movies. Never let your wardrobe keep you from a concert. Your experience is what’s important, so wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. We ask that you refrain from using strong scents, as they may be distracting to others.
Masterworks and Miami City Ballet attendees are invited to attend a Prelude, a free pre-performance discussion where you can learn about the music or repertoire for that evening. Preludes begin at 7pm for evening performances.
Entry from the southwest side of the museum may be limited until construction is complete in order to ensure your safety. We recommend parking on the north and east Artis—Naples lots. As always, parking is available at Waterside Shops’ parking garage in levels 3-5.
For evening and weekend events, please park only in the spots on the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus or in our partner lots across Ridgewood Drive at FineMark Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, the SunTrust Building and Waterside Shops.
Handicap parking spaces are located near the Hayes Hall main entrance. People who would have difficulty walking from Waterside Shops to our cultural campus should arrive early to find parking in our lots. This is especially important until the end of 2019.
Two spaces on the east side of the Cultural Campus are equipped with Tesla charging stations for Artis—Naples patrons.
Rideshare (e.g., Uber, Lyft) Users
If attending a performance in Hayes Hall or Daniels Pavilion, please ask your rideshare driver to drop you off near the East Gate off Ridgewood Drive (the same location at which our shuttle drops patrons, denoted on the Parking Guide with a shuttle icon). Please avoid dropping off in the Porte Cochere near the front doors of Hayes Hall, as ongoing Valet services will block your entrance and exit.
