The three-level theater — one of the industry’s first to be cashless — features the most advanced sound system of any venue its size in the world and the most advanced fixed lighting system in Puerto Rico.
Coca-Cola Music Hall assembled a large team of in-house specialists to help clients with staging, audio-visual and acoustic services, all of which are included as part of the rental fee. Other amenities include ultramodern suites, dressing rooms, wi-fi coverage, box office, security, ushers, and cleaning, among other services.
“On behalf of the entire Coca-Cola Music Hall team, we thank the public for the support we have received in just one year. We have managed to keep the entertainment industry in Puerto Rico thriving. We showed the world that we are a world-class venue, and I’m confident that we will continue to grow in the years to come,” said Jorge L. Perez, ASM Global regional manager in Puerto Rico.
Within five months of operation, the Coca-Cola Music Hall closed 2021 in the No. 31 position in box office sales worldwide (theater category) in Pollstar magazine’s “Year-End” results, ASM officials said.
“We’re extremely grateful to the artists and the producers for choosing Coca-Cola Music Hall as the ideal place to host their events and also to our partner PRISA Group and sponsors: Coca-Cola, T-Mobile, Banco Popular de Puerto Rico, JetBlue, Visa, Evertec, Cervecera de Puerto Rico, Destileria Serralles, V. Suarez and ticketing partner Ticketera,” said Pérez.
“We’re committed in continuing to offer a varied entertainment program in a safe environment. This is an achievement for all of Puerto Rico,” said Perez.
Meanwhile, Francisco Mariani, general manager of Distrito T-Mobile in the Miramar sector of San Juan — where the venue is located — said “the diversity and capabilities of its facilities and the public’s response have been key to both the venue and Distrito T-Mobile’s success as the premier entertainment destination in Puerto Rico.”
The Distrito T-Mobile is part of the Puerto Rico Convention Center District Authority, whose Executive Director, Mariela Vallines, said, “the Convention District has an ambitious plan to continue improving our facilities and expand the entertainment offered for our visitors. All our facilities have proven to be ideal for any private and public event.”
“This first anniversary of the Coca-Cola Music Hall echoes that we’re doing the right thing so that Puerto Rico continues to develop both in the entertainment industry as well as tourism, gastronomy and other related sectors,” she said.
