Their website says: "The entrance to the Red Room at Cafe 939 is located at 939 Boylston Street, near the intersection of Hereford Street and Boylston Street in Boston. Accessible curb cuts are located at the cross streets on either side of the venue at Hereford Street and Gloucester Street. The venue is on the first floor of the building and is easily accessible via a ramp near the front door or by five steps leading from the sidewalk in front of the building to the lobby right outside of the venue."
There's a side of the stage that is typically used for disabled fans. It gives a profile view of the stage. However, depending on the set up of the stage, sometimes that side of the stage is not available. In that case, a venue worker will bring you right up to the front and make sure no one can stand in front of you. It's a very small, intimate venue.
Their website says: "Patrons with disabilities may purchase tickets from the general inventory online or in person at the box office. Advance notice for reserved seating on the basis of a disability is recommended due to limited space and a general admission layout. Please contact the ticket operations and patron services manager at 617-747-6272 in advance to reserve a section, or ask for the venue manager for assistance upon arrival. Shows are general admission/standing room-only unless otherwise noted.
Information regarding the particular needs of individual patrons is very important to us. If it is desired or necessary, patrons may advise us of an impairment, the size of a wheelchair (if applicable), or preference for using our seats or remaining in one’s own wheelchair, etc.
Note that patrons with special needs may be admitted to the venue prior to the general public. Requests should be made at the box office or by asking for the venue manager at the front door. For further information or general inquiries, please call 617-747-6272."
Their website says: "Listening devices for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for all performances to assist with amplification and clarity. A radio-transmitted receiver is attached to a lightweight headset or neck loop, which couples signals from the audio output to a personal hearing aid. Please contact the ticket operations and patron services manager at 617-747-6272 in advance to reserve an assisted listening device, or ask for the venue manager for assistance upon arrival. Use of a listening device is complimentary. A driver’s license, passport, or major credit card is required as a deposit and will be returned to the patron when the device is returned."
Their website says: "An accessible unisex restroom is located in the cafe, to the left of the cafe entrance on the first floor. This space is not shared by any other facilities, and the door can be locked."
