FAQs, Beer & Wine, Venue info

Beer & wine: The Nash offers a wonderful selection of full and half bottles of wine, as well as an assortment of craft beers. (Note: As a result, the previous BYOB policy is NO longer in effect. Please do not bring your own.)

Food: We offer a selection of snacks for sale at The Nash (chips, cookies, etc.)but there is no dinner service. You are welcome to bring food in, and we are fortunate to be in an area with plenty of good restaurant choices. Check out this article on Roosevelt Row eateries for inspiration.

Parking: Free public parking may be available in the surface lot adjacent to The Nash on the east side (behind Carly’s, entering off Roosevelt or 2nd Street) and on the streets north of Portland. Metered parking is available elsewhere for $1.50/hour up to four hours More detailed parking & mass transit info can be found HERE.

Ticketing: Purchase of advance tickets to most events is available online, and is recommended.  Just follow the links from our calendar at https://thenash.org/calendar/.  Online ticket sales are closed two hours prior to the performance. Tickets are on sale at the door, except in the case of a “sold out” show.

Ticket processing costs: The processing costs partially offset the actual costs to The Nash for the necessary processing of tickets through an external ticket and data management vendor, as well as financial transaction fees charged to The Nash by third parties. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to avoid these costs. While we could raise our ticket prices to include these fees, we prefer to be transparent by disclosing these costs and the fact that they reflect actual direct expenses and are not inflated. These costs are the same whether tickets are purchased online or at the door and are among the lowest service fees of all ticketed entertainment venues.

FYI: The most common reason for getting the error message “We were not able to price all your tickets. Please contact our box office at (602) 795-0464”  is attempting to purchase Student tickets in a “Premium” seating section.

Refunds: All ticket sales are final. Patrons who are unable to attend may contribute their tickets to The Nash at least 48 hours prior to the show as a tax-deductible donation for the face value of the tickets.

Age restrictions: Guests of all ages are welcome at The Nash. Children under 12 will be admitted free of charge to most events.

Student tickets: Jazz education is one of the cornerstones of The Nash, and we welcome and encourage students to attend our events. We offer discounted pricing to Students 25 years of age or under, or members of ASU’s OSHER Lifelong Learning program.

Newsletter: The Nash sends a weekly “EBlast” newsletter to our subscribers to keep them informed of upcoming events here – and at other great locations throughout the Phoenix area. CLICK HERE to subscribe!

Seating: The Nash is a general admission venue with first-come seating (unless otherwise noted on the ticketing page), and it is recommended that you arrive early to ensure desired seating. Doors generally open about 1/2 hour before scheduled performance time. Most events are a combination of table seating, row seating and hi-top counter seating. Some special events are row seating only. The capacity, depending upon seating arrangement, is 80 to about 115 people.

Wheelchair Seating: The Nash is a small venue with limited aisle space and clear access to emergency exits. To meet the safety needs of all of our patrons and to offer a selection of pricing and seating excellence to our patrons needing accessible seating for wheelchairs and motorized chairs, we can offer only limited seating options. For Reserved Seating events, wheelchair and motorized chair locations are offered only in Section L and K and table seating only along the west aisle (seats numbered 14 or 15) of tables located in Sections A, B, and C. For General Admission seating, the locations available for accessible seating are the same, but may require early arrival to assure accommodation, since no seating can be reserved.
