BankAtlantic Center Adds Exclusive "Club Red" for Those Wanting High-End Dining With Their Hockey

Chef Lucio Iaconetti has always been involved in sports. Shorty after he opened the premiere ballpark in Arlington, Texas, he became well-known for his cuisine at the Diamond Club for the Texas Ranger's Organization.

Now, he's taking on a new sports-related culinary journey as senior executive chef at the BankAtlantic Center, where his food will be showcased in a members-only private club ($8,000 and up per membership).

Scheduled to open August 4, Sunrise

Sports & Entertainment's

Club Red offers members a

private lounge that even has its own entrance.

There will be a variety of food stations offering

items Iaconetti has made specifically for the lounge, including Florida rock shrimp shooters with avocado gazpacho,

pistachio-crusted black grouper, and churrasco-style filet mignon.


A large bar will take center stage, where a bartender will create signature

cocktails and hand out complimentary beer and wine.


Once you've filled your plates with food, bring your spread over to your

seat -- you'll know it's yours with the customized nameplate on the

chair. Besides getting to chow down on plenty of food while watching a

Florida Panthers game, you'll also enjoy the members lounge with HD flat

screens and WiFi. Of course, meeting

and greeting with the players on game day isn't so bad either.
