How does someone purchase tickets?
Tickets may be purchased exclusively on this website (mystiquedining.com)
Can reservations be made without buying tickets?
Unfortunately not. We are a box office that sells tickets to events. Seats are sold on a first come, first served basis and it is not fair for us to hold tickets when others are willing to pay. Tickets are non-refundable but are transferable with at least 48 hours notice.
Can you buy tickets at the door?
It never hurts to try. Sometimes all food options won’t be available at the last minute but we do our very best to accommodate everyone.
Is there a “Dress Code”?
No. The grandeur of our décor and the formality of our servers can be intimidating to some. This is not our intent. We do this so your experience is fun and unique but we are casual people.
Is there a group rate?
Private groups (single purchase transaction) of 20 or more receive a 15% discount.
Are gift certificates available?
Absolutely! Buy more than ten and receive a discount from the face value. The more you buy the better the discount.
Are gratuities expected?
We rely on our performers to also be your servers. They are compensated for their time and they do share the evenings gratuities collectively. For this reason we ask that you are generous with your gratuities at the table or when making your reservation. We are however aware that large groups seldom tip individually and are often the most demanding of the servers. As is standard in the hospitality industry, a gratuity of 20% is added to group sales of 10 or more.
