Lexus Lounge Brings New Amenities to Bridgestone Arena

Members at Bridgestone Arena’s new Lexus Lounge will be met with luxurious amenities unlike anything else offered in the entire market. Upon entering the Lexus Lounge, the personal concierge service and plush seating will quickly set the tone for an evening full of first-class accommodations. Special themed buffets that include carving stations, delicious desserts and a full bar will strengthen the tone of excellence as guests prepare for a night of sports and entertainment viewership unlike any other.

Lexus, a longtime partner of the Nashville Predators, is excited to add the Lexus Lounge as an additional piece of an already strong relationship.

“The all-new Lexus Lounge is shaping up to be the exclusive, luxurious space that we have dreamed of,” Lexus of Nashville/Lexus of Cool Springs General Manager J.R. Roper said. “We can’t wait to share the Lexus experience with all Lounge members.”

The Lexus Lounge, designed to fully serve fans that hold season-tickets in Bridgestone Arena’s Lexus Inner Circle, will open at the start of the 2014-15 season. The Lexus Lounge gives its members the opportunity to experience live sports and entertainment in a brand-new way, offering a behind-the-scenes look at both the Nashville Predators hockey team and the events and shows that call Bridgestone Arena home.

“Before it was, ‘just a ticket,’” Premium Sales Director Chris Burton said. “The Lexus Lounge changes that and makes it an all encompassing product where you can really enjoy the event at a whole new level.”

At the beginning and end of each game, Predators players will take to the ice through a tunnel that sits within the Lexus Lounge, giving fans a one-of-a-kind experience with some of their favorite players. In addition to getting these one-of-a-kind opportunities on game nights, Lexus Lounge members will receive invitations to private, interactive practices loaded with meet and greets and exclusive appearances.

Bill Knestrick, who has been a Preds fan and a season-ticket holder for many years, understands the value that having a space like the Lexus Lounge will bring to ticket holders in Nashville.

“It’s been exciting to see the evolution of the team and the fan-base and how those two interact based on the needs of one another,” Knestrick said. “The new Lexus Lounge is no exception to this and I’m looking forward to the added benefits the Lounge brings to attending games at Bridgestone Arena.”

In addition to hockey games, Lexus Lounge members will have the first opportunity for tickets to non-hockey events, an opportunity to enjoy the unique “back stage” feel and amenities that the Lexus Lounge offers while seeing the big name shows that only Bridgestone Arena, one of the Top 10 busiest show venues in the United States, can offer.

“You know that when you have a membership, it takes care of everything,” Burton said. “It takes care of your parking, the food and the tickets. Companies can send customers and know that they are going to be well taken care of in a really high-end environment.”

With nothing like it offered anywhere else in Middle Tennessee, the addition of the Lexus Lounge continues to strengthen Bridgestone Arena’s reputation as one of the top sports and entertainment venues in the United States.

Nashville singer and songwriter Vince Gill has experience as both a performer and as a fan at Bridgestone Arena and can speak to the significance of the new Lexus Lounge.

"I’m a Predator fan and a season-ticket holder and I’ve been to countless events at the Bridgestone Arena,” Gill said. “I love how the arena is always looking for ways to provide the fans an even greater experience. The Lexus Lounge will do just that. Whether it’s a Preds game, a concert or any event at the Bridgestone arena – this is going to be great.”
