New Albion family bar to open
11:10am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
A family themed sports bar for Albion supporters will open for the first time this weekend.
The Seven Stars Sports Bar at The American Express Community opens for the first time tomorrow before and after the match against Huddersfield Town.
The club’s new matchday family facility will be offering a range of food and beverages for supporters arriving early or wishing to stay later at the stadium.
The new 150-capacity facility, which replaces the East Stand Brasserie, will operate in a similar way to Dick's Bar on matchdays but catering specifically for families.
It will open at 11.30am until kick-off and after the final whistle until 8pm.
Executive director Martin Perry has overseen the refurbishment with the new bar named after the Seven Stars pub in Ship Street, Brighton, where the club was formed by John Jackson on June 24 1901.
The bar also has a collection of artwork paying tribute to sporting icons with a Sussex link, including Olympic gold medallists Steve Ovett and Sally Gunnell, world champion boxer Chris Eubank and former Albion schoolboy Gareth Barry.
Chief executive Paul Barber said: "Dick's Bar is a great venue for adults and adult groups, but the families among our fans asked us to create somewhere that they could relax in the same way those in Dick's can before and after matches.
"The new sports bar facility will now give them the options to relax in a family-friendly environment. “There will be a similar range of food and drink options on offer to those available in Dick's Bar, and we hope it will become popular with families."
