The Scene: Ciroc Partners w/ Red Restaurant At PHILIPS Arena!Published by Gyant on Monday, April 30, 2012 at 7:27 am.
I’ve been hearing about Ciroc’s new restaurant and bar area at the Phillips arena. Brand Ambassador Marc Bolden has been hard at work spreading awareness of the relatively new liquor that sweeping the nation. Rumor has it Ciroc is at nearly 2 million bottles sold, which in the game of spirits is VERY good.
While I haven’t yet had the chance to check out the venue, I’m hearing nothing but great things. ATL Bite life’s blog has in fact checked out the new facility and had this to say:
“..This approximately 10,000 sq ft space that seats about 250 people sits between the 203 and 205 section of arena and is probably the sexiest sports lounge you’ve ever been to. Not only does it boast a full bar sponsored by Ciroc (with bottle service), a reasonably priced premium menu, and group seating that mirrors the sections you’d find at one of Alex Gidewon’s clubs, the view of the court (or whatever event is going on at the time) is still prime.
I had a chance to sample several items. On the positive side, the Crispy Chicken Cheese Sliders were very Chick Fil A-ish so I was definitely pleased with those. The Signature Creamy Mac n’ Cheddar Bites, which was basically fried mac & cheese bites, were very tasty. The Shrimp and Super Lump Crab Cakes were DELICIOUS!!! However, on the down side, the Margherita Pizza was just okay. I’ve definitely had better. The mixed green salad was kinda blah but whatever. Finally, The Red Pepper Steak Burger might have been okay had it not been damn near RARE (ya’ll know black folks don’t do raw meat!!!).
Right now, RED is only operating before, during, and shortly after ticketed events. However, I have it on good authority that they will be opening in the not too distant future just like any other full service restaurant for lunch and dinner on non-event days. Not sure how that will work though. I don’t know how many people will just want to grab food at Philips Arean on the average day. But, hey, I was wrong once before.”
The Atlanta Ciroc market is being led by Brand Ambassador, Marc Bolden (Left) who’s working on many great Ciroc themed events in the city of Atlanta this summer, including some HUGE events he’s planning on having at the new CIROC BAR…. Stay tuned to his Twitter for updates and events @CIROCstarATL as he’s always out and about.
Is a partnership between Levy Restaurants, Philips Arena and CÎROC ULTRA PREMIUM VODKA/ DIAGEO. As of now, will be open on game and event days before, during and after events and will be open up till 2am. There are 3 other Ciroc bar locations throughout the arena also, 2 on the Hawk Walk and one at the Club level entrance.
Nice restaurant area.
Executive VP of The Blue Flame Agency, Dia Simms speaks on the landmark partnership below.
Consumers turn to our brand when they want to elevate their night with friends and family. We enjoy bringing this ideal to life for our fans nationwide and are confident that Ciroc bar at Red is a great example of this experience.
Something tells that this venue is going to the talk of the town as the Summer kicks into high gear.
