Another set of upgrades to announce for Dodger Stadium: After plenty of changes in the past few years under Janet Marie Smith, the ballpark’s club level has a fresh look, while concessions throughout offer more choices to all fans.
From the Dodgers:
The Lexus Dugout Club has undergone a major renovation, the first since the club opened in 2000. Premium-seat members will enjoy an increase in dining room capacity and a new look in interior décor. The expanded kitchens will offer additional food options, as well as enhanced menus and improved in-seat service. There will be more built-in cooking locations, a new carvery and buffet, new desserts and premium cocktails.
Members will be able to enjoy a newly expanded bar and cocktail area with new high-tops extending out from the area. And the upper-level bar will have a new look, with greater emphasis on dining in that space.
The club will feature enlarged and enhanced television displays — 20 in all, including four 84-inch sets — so patrons can stay on top of all of the Dodgers action throughout the club.
Dodger fans in the Lexus Dugout Club will also enjoy a greater display of Dodger memorabilia at the entrance to the club. This display will also be available to those taking Dodger Stadium tours, offered daily from the Top of the Park for $20 for adults and $15 for children, seniors and military. In addition to MVP awards, Gold Gloves and World Series trophies, the expanded displays will include the newly-acquired Silver Slugger awards.
Fans will also enjoy upgraded concessions for the 2015 season:
Dodger fans will enjoy the following new menu items:
- Lasorda’s Meatball Marinara Specialty Fries
- Lasorda’s Meatball Marinara Cone
- La Taqueria’s Carne Asada Specialty Fries (Field & Reserve levels)
- Breaded Chicken Sandwich and Tenders (Field & Reserve levels)
- Fried Dodger Dogs at Extreme Loaded Dogs location on Field level (aisle 48)
The two new Lasorda’s items will be added to the fare at Tommy Lasorda’s Italian Trattoria, located on the right-field plaza area.
Daily specials also will be featured at the hot-off-the-grill THINK BLUE BBQ located on the left-field plaza area.
Fans will also have the option to enjoy healthy choices such as turkey burgers, veggie burgers, veggie dogs, veggie wraps and veggie pizza at a number of locations throughout the stadium.
In addition, several nacho locations have been added throughout the stadium and the signature loaded helmet nacho will be available in vegetarian and vegan versions.
Four Reserve level food stands have been upgraded and the Dodgers will add several portable beverage kiosks throughout the stadium. The stadium will have new bar locations on the Loge level entrance plazas and behind home plate and two stands on the Top Deck. The Dodgers will offer expanded beer choices featuring Anheuser Busch’s full product line as well as local craft selections throughout the stadium.
The Field level next to the escalators will have new food and drink areas for fans to enjoy. Fresh salads, sandwiches and snacks will be available at the new grab & go location.
Yes, we’ll be hitting Dodger Stadium fairly early in the 2015 season: the fan experience has been seriously upgraded by the new ownership group, and the changes deserve some serious coverage.
