Suns’ latest Transformation Thursday shows off new pavilion bar

Oct 23, 2020, 7:14 PM

In the Phoenix Suns’ latest Transformation Thursday video update of Talking Stick Arena, Suns’ broadcasters Tom Leander and Eddie Johnson showed the progress of the totally revamped Casino Arizona pavilion bar area and FOX Arizona Sports stage.

The pavilion features a 60-foot long bar, which will offer various craft beer, cocktail and wine selections to fans. Surrounding the bar is more than 7,000-square-feet of high resolution LED TV screens.

Once the team’s renovations are complete, the Suns say the arena will be the home of the largest physical bar in Arizona.

The video also shows escalators being installed to multiple club levels in order to provide a quick way to move between suite sections and the pavilion. The pavilion will be open to fans of any ticket level, the Suns say.

A new broadcast stage will be moved from the Dos Equis beer garden to inside the pavilion, with the audio being streamed throughout the pavilion and a chance for fans to be up close and personal to the broadcast.
