Encore Circle Lounge

Wolf Trap's Encore Circle Lounge adjacent to the Filene Center is an inviting space where donors and special guests can relax and enjoy refreshments pre- or post-show.

Hours of Operation

  • Opens 90 minutes prior to each performance
  • Closes 45 minutes after each performance


Wolf Trap provides complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee, and tea. Canned cocktails are available for purchase. Light hors d’oeuvres are served prior to the performance, and dessert and coffee are served following the show.


Restrooms are located inside the air-conditioned cabin of the Encore Circle Lounge.


Encore Circle membership provides access to the lounge for you and your guests (up to 4 people total) on performance evenings throughout the summer season. To ensure the highest level of service, please present your membership card as you enter.
