The Prudential Center will also debut the new multi-million dollar investment they made towards enhancing the fan experience of the building.

Prudential Center and New Jersey Devils President, Hugh Weber said, “We take great pride in our commitment to creating a world class experience for our fans.” He added, “The hundreds of enhancements we made this offseason, as well as the increased engagement with our players, are a result of the open dialogue with our fan base. Which we look forward to continuing for many years to come”

The organization said the completely renovated Fire and Ice Lounges, now known as the East and West Clubs, creates a first class, all-inclusive experience for club seat holders. Its open concept design features new tables and lounge areas and a new buffet with a rotation of six menu options.

The organization also mentioned that the restaurant and bar on Suite level one, will offer a lite bite menu.

Completing the premium lineup is the theater style loge boxes that help provide a more intimate setting for client hospitality or intimate night out with friends and family.

World renowned chef, David Burke, extended his offerings to the main concourse, with a new location, “Handwich Shop,” which features mini sandwiches, sides and desserts.

The “Chicken Coop” is a fan inspired concept located on the main concourse featuring chicken options. The Jersey Grind, will offer the “Jersey Burger” topped with Taylor Ham and a fried egg.

New partner Goya Foods was brought on board to help the organization provide an authentic Latin flavor to the menus, including the Ironbound stand located on the upper concourse and the new Goya Street Taco Stand on the main course.

Over the summer the Devils sent season ticket and flex plan holders a membership card which entitles them to access to a different benefits around the arena.

Some of those benefits include discounts on apparel and access to a members lounge located in the restaurant. Members also save time when entering the building with new member entrances.
