crystal city partners

Synetic Theater participates in CultureCapital.  Your Link to the Arts in Metro DC.


How do you top an exhilarating performance? Well, you marry it with an equally captivating dining experience, that’s how!  Jaleo Crystal City partners with Arlington’s Premiere Theater to bring you a custom menu in association with each show. Creativity doesn’t begin and end on stage; it is a multi-faceted journey. Chef and restaurant owner, José Andrés can weave a story through food just as a performer does on stage. Dinner at Jaleo Crystal City sets the stage to talk about theater before or after the performance, and helps to create the perfect night out when paired with tickets to Synetic Theater.

Special pre-theater menu+ ticket package is available for all Synetic Theater productions. Purchase the dinner package and save on both your ticket and the dinner.  Enjoy a selection of three tapas and dessert designed to wake your senses before the show!

Reservations for pre theater dinner are held for 6:00PM at Jaleo Crystal City – 2250 A Crystal Drive.

Please note that tip is not included.

The Jaleo Package is unavailable on the following days:

Much Ado About Nothing:
2/13, 2/14, 2/15
