U.S. Open Gets New Restaurants and Bars

The U.S. Open starts next Monday in New York City, and we hear that the U.S. Tennis Association has built some new hospitality areas at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for guests to enjoy some food and drink while taking a break from the games, sets and matches.

According to the Daily News, the new hospitality areas will include the Heineken Red Star Café, the Heineken Light Lounge and the Moët & Chandon Terrace, where tennis buffs can enjoy some champagne next to Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The Heineken Red Star Café, next to the South Plaza Fountains, will occupy the top floor of a new two-story building and also serve a menu of fine foods to complement the beer. The café will reportedly offer tennis fans a unique, bird’s-eye view of the grounds.

The Heineken Light Lounge, located in Chase Center off of the East Gate, will also offer beer and food in a remodeled outdoor cafe.

Meanwhile, Bar 17, a casual outdoor drinking spot, will be housed near the new 2,800-seat Court 17.

The competition will begin on August 27, and we hear opening night will include a performance by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks. For tickets and more information, visit www.usopen.org.
