The Tampa Bay Buccaneers revealed Thursday the new premium sports bar that will open this fall at Raymond James Stadium will be named Bar 76— a reference to the team’s inaugural 1976 season. The 10,000-square foot restaurant and bar will be located in the East Stadium Club atrium and will feature 76 varieties of beer. Bar 76-- along with a complete redesign of the East Stadium Club-- is the latest project in the team’s more than $160 million, multi-phase renovation of Raymond James Stadium.
Bar 76 will feature an upscale Buccaneer football-themed motif presented in an industrial-meets-modern interior design style. An impressive white brick wall adorned with two large 15-foot by 9-foot video boards and all 32 NFL helmets will serve as the primary focal point behind the bar. More than 60 HDTV monitors and a third video wall will provide patrons with unprecedented access to all pre- and post-game programming as well as games from around the NFL.
The new premium sports bar will also boast one of the largest selections of beer found at a sports venue in the region, highlighted by a wide variety of offerings from the team’s partners at MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch as well as a number of local and Florida-based breweries. In addition to the unmatched variety of beers, Bar 76 will also feature an array of build-it-yourself culinary stations as well as a number of signature food items.
“The Glazer family is constantly challenging us to find new, innovative ways to enhance the gameday experience and Bar 76 is going to be a game-changer for our club members who desire an upscale restaurant option before, during and after games,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “With its 76 varieties of beer, signature food offerings and football-themed, high-end design, Bar 76 will quickly become a premier destination within Raymond James Stadium.”
In addition to Bar 76, the new East Stadium Club will include two additional sleek new bars—one at each end of the club lounge—more than 160 HDTVs, and a state-of-the-art audio system within 64,000-square feet of redesigned space. Dark hardwoods, pewter accents, elegant carpeting, modern lighting and striking colors will highlight a modern décor in a space that provides affordable, comfortable luxury. East Club members will also view the games in new, comfortable padded stadium seating while enjoying additional Club benefits such as early entry to the stadium, new boutique concessions locations, discounted food pricing, and autograph opportunities with Buccaneers legends and cheerleaders.
East Stadium Club memberships are currently available with tickets starting at $155 per seat. To speak to a representative about becoming one of the first to experience the all-new East Stadium Club, fans should visit Buccaneers.com or call 813-870-2700.
