We’re not proud of this by any means, but we parked in a church parking lot charging $8.00 and we didnt have cash and offered to pay at the end of the game. The wonderful lady collecting money told us not to worry about it to just pay her next game and so we said ok. Let that be our confession.
The bars outside of the stadium were dead but had potential. Basketball great Dan Majarle owns a pretty huge Sports bar a few blocks away from the stadium that is big enough to have two entrances on two adjacent streets. There was one room called The Cotton Club that reminded us of everything we pictured a “Champagne
Room” to look like. It just looked out of place and strange. Could only imagine how many nights Barkley chugged bottles of Patron in there.
Directly across from the stadium is a two leveled bar called Sliders. This was the pregame bar of choice for fans. Packed insdie and out, the outside was lines with smokin’ hot beer girls ready to serve.
The stadium took after most of the better looking modern stadiums, tastefully combining brick and steel. The inside, was huge and offered massive amounts of space to walk around the lower levels. The first cool thing that caught our eyes was the Sauza Frozen Margarita stands. They were pretty cool until they were trumped by a vender with a mobile Sauza Frozen Margarita backpack! Picture Ghostbusters meets spring break Cancun.
We were fortunate enough to see Luis Gonzalez be the first Diamondback to have his number retired to the rafters. The ceremony was great and the people of Phoenix didnt stop cheering “Gonzo” the entire game. Not going to lie, it was a bit hard to watch Gonzo hit that blooper into short center to win the Wolrd Series against the Yanks, every single inning. We endured it, kicking and screaming, one of us even cried.
The outfield offers some cool views from The TGIFridays Front Row deck above left field and the Diamond Club above right, but the best view is above center field over looking the pool. The stadium offered a ton of great food choices from Mexican cuisine to Fatburger to Panda Express. Overall Chase doesn’t disappoint for the price of a decent ticket.
