The New York Knick often look lost in finding ways to build a winning team, but you have to give it to them when it comes to looking for opportunities to generate money. Well, not exactly them, but the people who run Madison Square Garden.
In their latest show of entrepreneurial savvy, the Garden’s management partnered with a popular restaurant conglomerate to develop a unique viewing experience for extremely wealthy folks during events at Madison Square Garden according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.
MSG, together with the Tao Group — a restaurant and nightlife company — began offering the new Suite Sixteen to fans on Friday morning. Prices aren’t listed on the suite website, but a source told ESPN that the price for the most expensive package is $400,000.
You read that right. A scintillating $400 grand to watch Michael Beasley get blown past by on defense, see Ron Baker get crossed up by quicker opposing guards, and witness Joakim Noah injure one limb at a time.
The package, however, isn’t limited to Knicks games. Clients could also see their $400,000 vanish into thin air in exchange for watching the New York Rangers play and being part of live concerts by the likes of Billy Joel and Shakira.
Apart from those, Rovell also notes more features included in the package.
The package also includes a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne for every event and wristbands that give access to four guests who already have tickets inside the arena.
So if you happen to find $400,000 between the cracks of your sofa, please consider bringing your friends along to experience the live atmosphere of Madison Square Garden while sipping on some expensive champagne.
