MESSAGE FROM THE HILLTOP TAVERN -- HOW WE'RE ABLE TO DO THIS:
For decades, the Hilltop has operated as a restaurant on our expansive outdoor patio.
We're able to space the dining tables 6 to 10 feet apart atop our 55 acres of property!
In fact, you're welcome to bring your own lawn chairs!
(absolutely no coolers, outside food or drink).
The advance ticket GUARANTEES you admission. This does NOT include dinner.
Yes, we DO server dinner but WE DO NOT ACCEPT DINNER RESERVATIONS
We open at 4pm ~ the show starts in the 5 o'clock hour. We ask that you help us protect the bands by dancing BY YOUR TABLES, not in front of the band.
Admission is PER person, not per table.
Seating at the tables is first come first served.
Which means if you show up at 5 for dinner, you can keep your seat.
If you show up at 9pm just before the show - you will likely not sit close to the stage.
SBCO OFFICIAL COVID-19 COMPLIANT BUSINESS PARTNER:
This is an outdoor show with social distancing in place,
so table seating is limited and will likely sell out.
You won’t be sharing a table with other parties - social distancing in place!
Costumes are welcome. You don't have to wear a mask while seated, but we do ask
that you wear a mask while walking about - to the restroom, to stretch your legs, whatever.
We want to keep doing these dinner shows as much as you want to keep seeing them happen.
So please, it's a small thing to ask in an effort to help us
continue to be in compliance. Thank you!
ARE MINORS ALLOWED? Yes, with three caveats:
1) Minor must be accompanied by a parent
2) Minor must also purchase regular priced admission - regardless of minors age
3) Groups with minors are not permitted on the patio where the outside bar is located.
You ARE more than welcome to sit in the Hilltop Garden area, adjacent to the patio. Still a great view and sound from the stage
*YOU WILL NOT BE MAILED AN ACTUAL TICKET*
Your advance purchase puts your name in at will call.
We're not mailing you a ticket, you won’t get an "eticket",
there is no email confirmation other than the one you may receive from PayPal.
You don't need an actual PayPal account to purchase admission.
You can ignore the prompts to sign in or sign up for PayPal.
If you do choose to use your PayPal account, please be aware that the name at will call
will be the name associated with your PayPal account.
So if you still have it under your maiden name, or a business name - that's the name at will call.
The rumors of a Halloween Cubensis show ARE TRUE!
Cubensis will perform at the Hilltop Tavern on Halloween night, 9pm on the outdoor stage with a liquid light show. This will be our first public show in 8 months. Opening bands will perform starting at 5pm. Same price regardless of when you arrive. Dinner purchase may be required for seating. All ages welcome at full price. Tickets available here: https://hilltoptavernandinn.com/food , scroll down to events and please carefully read rules and COVID restrictions. Hilltop Tavern, 9544 Kiowa Rd, Apple Valley. Masks must be worn when leaving table area, and please help protect the bands by dancing at your tables only, not in front of the band as usual. Thanks for understanding!
What a long, strange trip it still is!
There's a band out on the highway -- For 32 years, and over 4000 performances, Cubensis has brought the sights and sounds of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead to Southern California and beyond! Join us for a family celebration of the music and culture that insures the Grateful Dead’s community and spirit prevails. Cubensis is recognized as the longest continuously-performing Dead tribute in the nation!
Cubensis has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead's material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band enthusiasts, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans. The band is a study in ensemble playing, and its members feed off each other's energy, pushing one another into high gear with integrated parts that answer and complement each other.
Below you'll find a quick-access main calendar, plus a section with significant upcoming shows highlighted and detailed. Check back often for updates, and feel free to explore the rest of the site! As a fan once said, "There ain't no place I'd rather be!"
