Nashville, Tenn. (March 5, 2010) – The world’s number one ultra-premium tequila brand, Patrón Tequila, has agreed to a multi-year partnership with the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena, lending its name to the exclusive Suite Level restaurant, the Patrón Platinum Club.
“The Patrón Spirits Company is very happy to have formed a great partnership with the city of Nashville and Bridgestone Arena,” Patrón Southeastern US Regional Vice President of Marketing Marc Roberts said. “Nashville has always been a great Patrón town and this agreement only solidifies that bond. We are looking forward to a great working partnership; Patrón Tequila and Bridgestone Arena is a winning combination.”
Located in the heart of Downtown Nashville, consumers can enjoy the casual elegance of the Patrón Platinum Club before attending their favorite sporting event or concert. Featuring a "Contemporary American" menu – which infuses cooking techniques from cultures throughout the world prepared with an American interpretation – the Club boasts seating for more than 200 guests. To compliment the menu, the Club also features the Ultimat Martini Lounge, offering an exciting selection of wines, microbrews, mixed drinks and non-spirited beverages, and highlights several ultra-premium Patrón products including Ultimat Vodka, Patrón Silver, Patrón XO Café and Patrón Citrónge.
“Patrón is one of the fastest-growing global spirits brands in the world,” Nashville Predators Senior Vice President of Corporate Development, Chris Junghans said. “This unique partnership combines our most exclusive, luxurious space with an ultra-premium spirits brand. This is not only a perfect match for the Nashville Predators brand, but it also solidifies Bridgestone Arena as the premiere venue in the country.”
Patrón (Spanish for “the good boss”) is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, John Paul DeJoria and Martin Crowley, whose love of tequila and desire to create the best tequila in the world led them to a factory high in the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico, producing an extraordinary spirit. A few changes later, Patrón tequila was ready for market and The Patrón Spirits Company was born. Today, Patrón is one of the fastest-growing global spirits brands.
The Nashville Predators and Patrón kicked off their new partnership with a pre-game ribbon-cutting ceremony and spirits tasting held in the Patrón Platinum Club prior to Thursday night’s game vs. the Los Angeles Kings.
This 200-plus seat restaurant is open to all Premium ticket holders prior to Nashville Predators hockey games and for all major concerts. The Club’s bar will also be open following Nashville Predators games. The Patrón Platinum Club is also available for private receptions. For reservations or information call (615) 770-2477.
