Amalie Arena unveiled exciting new food and beverage additions for the upcoming 2023-2024 Tampa Bay Lightning season.
Recent additions to the Cur(ate) TPA program include local favorites Lolis Tacos and Bull Market, along with technological improvements that promise to take the dining experience to the next level.
Steve Griggs, CEO of Vinik Sports Group, commented, „We are excited to enhance the experience for Lightning fans and visitors to AMALIE Arena. Cur(ate) TPA is key in providing great options in food and beverage. Local and fresh. Drink”.
Among the innovations is TendedBar, a new system that uses facial recognition and automation to serve cocktails quickly and accurately. The system will debut at the Tampa Bay Club (Section 209) and promises to provide a seamless experience for fans.
Additionally, a new partnership with Alfred Technologies will allow for intelligent management of wine and spirits inventory throughout the stadium. And it doesn’t end there: Mashgin’s self-checkout system, powered by artificial intelligence, allows you to make purchases at various outlets within 10 seconds.
There is also increasing diversity in food options. Lolis Tacos and Bull Market, winners of the second annual Cur(ed) TPA Challenge, will serve up their authentic Mexican cuisine and Asian-American fusion creations, respectively. Inaugural winner Wicked Oak Barbecue is adding a mouth-watering Tamba Do sandwich to its menu.
For those looking for something more sophisticated, iconic brands like Copper Can Wine and Cutwater Spirits have been added, as well as updated craft beers from Cigar City Brewing. The VIP areas have also been upgraded with enhanced menus and seasonal offers.
The Budweiser Biergarten and Corona Cantina on the terrace provide the perfect environment to celebrate the Lightning’s victories. In addition, Cur(ate) TPA ensures that all allergen and dietary information is available on digital menus so fans can all enjoy worry-free.
For select events, Firestick Grill will offer live cooking stations and a varied menu that reflects Tampa Bay’s culinary heritage. Bookings are available through Ticketmaster and Open Table.
With these new features, AMALIE Arena reaffirms its commitment to providing an unparalleled experience to all sports and event fans in attendance. For more information, visit Arena website.
