T-Mobile Arena has partnered with culinary experts Levy Restaurants to provide probably the most dynamic, easy to customize craft cocktail and food encounters in sports and entertainment to T-Mobile Arena, when it opens April 6, 2016.
As the exclusive food and beverage provider, Levy Restaurants has drawn upon its restaurant roots and knowledge in greater than 200 venues to produce a signature program made to dazzle visitors from around the world with a brand new Vegas standard in premium encounters – from exclusive event level suites to the electric atmosphere on the concourses.
Capitalizing on the desires of an array of fans and events- from UFC, boxing, hockey and basketball, to high-profile awards shows and concerts in the center of the experience – Levy tapped famous mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim to produce a cutting-edge beverage program offering event-goers the personalization of the boutique bar with the capacity to execute it on an arena-wide scale. In addition to the traditional concessions fans are familiar with, select premium menus with a Vegas twist allows visitors to pair a number of delectable food products with their beverage of preference.
?People come from all over the world to experience Las Vegas mixology and dining,? stated Tony Abou-Ganim, one of the world?s foremost bar professionals and founder of Modern Mixologist, a best-selling guide for today?s mixologist. ?We?re bringing that level of precision and hospitality to T-Mobile Arena, giving each guest a Vegas-worthy experience.?
