When You Arrive…

You’ll be greeted by our friendly security staff. Your safety while with us is our top priority. Please have your government-issued photo ID out and ready if you plan to drink and/or if there is an age restriction for the show. Don’t forget to come in dressed to impress within our dress code guidelines (see in FAQ).

After coming through security, you can either enter our Box Office or the entrance bar & lounge.

Our Box Office is open Fridays 10am-4pm and one hour before door times on show days.

In our Box Office you can:

  • Buy tickets to future shows at Marathon Music Works
  • Peruse & purchase Marathon Music Works merchandise
  • Purchase exclusive screen prints from past shows
  • Pick up Will Call tickets

Entrance Bar & Lounge

Come Early, Have a Drink

Starting an hour before door time, enjoy a beer, cocktail, espresso or grilled cheese in our entrance bar & lounge at the front of the venue. Tickets are required to enter. You’ll have quick access to enter the venue from this room as well as seating options before the show. Be sure to visit our Guest Services kiosk to check your coat, any merch you don’t want to carry around or ask us any questions.

The Entrance Bar & Lounge is open for the entire show experience, so retreat here for a conversation or to snack on some of our food options throughout the show.

At door time, we’ll open the garage door that connects to the main room where you are welcome to enter and scout out the spot you want to enjoy the show.

William Colliers

If You Fancy The Top Shelf Drinks

Also open an hour before doors open, dive into our whiskey list, have a cocktail or beer at the bar, on our comfy couches or patio. William Collier’s stays open during and after the show and tickets are NOT required to enter.

William Collier’s is connected to the main room so you can pass back and forth during the show, but only after you have entered Marathon Music Works through the front doors. It’s the perfect place to sneak away from the show for quiet conversation with friends.

William Collier’s is also available to rent for private events.

Nashville and New York resident artist, James Willis curated the design of William Collier’s. He hand-sketched the bar top design from original Marathon Motor Works blueprints, created the oils paintings for the walls, and designed most other aspects of the room itself.

Main Room

Enjoy The Show!

Once you enter the main room, you can decide what area in which you’d like to enjoy the show. Most shows are General Admission, standing room only and all areas are first come first serve. If you’d like to grab a seat there are a limited number of high top tables and chairs in the back that are also first come first serve. ADA seating is available to any who needs it. Please read our FAQs if you have further questions.

If you’d like to grab a drink, there are two bars at opposite ends of the room. Hungry? No problem, the Daddy’s Dogs Cart is available in the back for hot dogs (including veggie dogs). We also have a designated smoking deck for anyone wanting to smoke or vape.

The show will be the highlight of your evening and is why we do what we do. #SupportLiveMusic | #SupportCommunityEvents
