Welcome Center & Karen and Richard LeFrak Lobby


Make the Welcome Center your first stop when visiting Lincoln Center. Located at the southeast corner of David Geffen Hall, it's much more than just a box office; it's a warm and welcoming entry point to the entire Lincoln Center campus. Receive information on programs and events across the campus, book tickets, meet friends old and new, experience free exhibits, and grab a coffee or light snack from The Coffee Bar throughout the day.

Adjacent to the Welcome Center is the Karen and Richard LeFrak Lobby—Lincoln Center's "living room"—with couches, comfortable club chairs, and free Wi-Fi. A retractable garage-type glass door opens up the space to Josie Robertson Plaza in the warmer months; and the lobby’s 50-foot Hauser Digital Wall displays visual art commissions and performance livestreams from inside the concert hall, all free and available to the general public.
