It has two restaurants, outdoor terraces and seven stages. The building also consists of five bars and the Mosebacke Etablissement restaurant. Stora Scen is the main stage. Mosebacketerrassen is an outdoor terrace. Champagnebaren is a newly renovated banquet hall [2][3]

Since 1997, focus has been set on staging international performances. The theatre houses diverse events, spanning from club-scene entertainment, concerts, theatre and readings to children's philosophy. Although built as a theatre, the main focus today is on music.
