Coliseo de Puerto Rico executives unveiled a new open bar concept at the venue, called Lounge 118, for which it invested $400,000.
The new space on the main level is
part of the infrastructure improvements underway at the coliseum, said General
Manager Eduardo Cajina.
The transformation of the 1,100
square-foot space, previously occupied by one of the food concessions, was conceptualized
by architect Luis Gutiérrez, who designed the contemporary, flexible and
open-space bar concept.
The main focus of the design revolves
around the bar, which aims to serve both the customer inside and outside the
arena, which makes it possible for visitors to order their cocktails without missing
out what’s happening on stage.
“As we anticipated last year, the
creation of this lounge is one of the efforts that we will be presenting as
part of the celebration of our 15th anniversary,” said Cajina. “We will
continue developing projects so that the coliseum remains the favorite
entertainment center for all Puerto Ricans and tourists who visit us.”
the coliseum’s dressing rooms and the construction of two terraces with outdoor
bars should be completed by year’s end, it was announced.
