Our L-shaped foyer is the heart of the building and perhaps its most flexible space. The scene on arriving at the top of the beautiful marble staircase has been described as looking like the inside of an ocean liner. The foyer is a fantastic venue for arranging receptions, banquets, breakfast or lunch meetings and trade fairs.
The foyer is used for lunches, fika and receptions for all meetings held in the building. It is also home to the Theater Bar, which can remain open should you so desire.
Also in the foyer is a large original fresco depicting to six artists who comprised the Halmstad Group. Take a moment to look at Axel Olson’s ornamental railings, which act as an airy screen before you reach the doors of the Grand Auditorium. This original artwork was commissioned for the theater has been here since it opened in 1954.
