Last week, Hawks fans were able to see the preliminary results of Philips Arena’s ongoing renovation. Included in the progress: the NBA’s first courtside bar, Hawks Bar. Bar areas are not new to courtside season ticket holders, but this is the first with a view of the action.
“People don’t want to be confined to their seats anymore,” Hawks’ chief operating officer Thad Sheely told ESPN. “That’s true for our high-end season ticket holders as well.”
Still to come with the renovation: Zac Brown’s Social Club, a Southern restaurant with a live music stage, new conference center and more.
