On our home page, click on CALENDAR. You will be taken to our monthly show calendar where you can select MAKE RESERVATIONS for the time and date desired. Please note that reservations usually become available one week in advance at 8AM CST (Tuesday for Tuesday, Wednesday for Wednesday, etc.) and the Monday of that week for Friday and Saturday shows. If you cannot make a reservation, then the show you selected is either: 1.) Sold out 2.) First come, first served seating only 3.) Not yet on sale.
When a show goes on sale, we use the Queue-It system to help handle the thousands of visitors that visit the page at the same time for our limited number of seats.
[Please watch the Queue-It video HERE – it will help you visualize the online queuing experience and it describes the “waiting in line” process before you are automatically redirected to our website in a randomized queue or line]
As mentioned above, when you arrive on the show page, you are given a randomly selected number in line. You are waiting in “line” to get into the “room” where you can make reservations. The first few people in line are given immediate access to the “room” where they then proceed to make a reservation. 10 minutes has been allotted to complete the transaction. As soon as one person in the room is done, the next person in line can enter (you are given prompts when it is your turn and throughout the rest of the reservation process). Keep in mind, you can only make a reservation for up to 6 seats. If you have additional members in your party, you’ll need to make another reservation.
You will be asked for your credit card and billing information for the $2.50 (+tax) non-refundable reservation fee per person (unless it is noted that it is a pre-paid show).
It is important to note that we have a limited number of seats available for reservation. The Bluebird is an intimate music venue with only 20 tables inside, which seat fewer than a hundred people. Should you be unable to make a reservation, we have approximately 25 seats at the bar and church pew area that are first come, first served.
