– The Sportsbar LIVE! at Rogers Arena is Vancouver’s new NFL Headquarters –
After launching in mid-December, The Sportsbar LIVE! at Rogers Arena has already become the city’s favourite sports and entertainment venue. The upscale, 14,000 square foot space is the first of its kind in North America to fuse high energy sports with an elevated dining experience. With more than 100 4K-HD TV screens, a towering 16+ foot big screen, and a wall that opens right into the arena, guests are so close to the action they can feel it.
And with the NFL playoff season kicking off last weekend, The Sportsbar is also now ‘Touchdown Central’.
