Fans with courtside tickets at Little Caesars Arena likely won’t care as much if the Detroit Pistons lose.
The team has announced plans to open a full bar right behind the visiting team’s baseline.
Called the CURE Insurance Courtside Club, it will feature high-top tables, TVs, food and alcoholic beverages, according to Pistons management. Despite the opportunity to haul in big bucks at every home game, only courtside ticket holders will be admitted, according to Brenden Mallette, a senior VP with the Pistons.
“The CURE Insurance Courtside Club is a unique opportunity to reshape and enhance the fan experience,” Mallette says.
“As our fans return to Little Caesars Arena this fall in full force for the first time in nearly 18 months, the club is one of many new amenities that will welcome them back to Detroit Basketball.”
