XFINITY Live! — The Ultimate Philadelphia Entertainment Experience
The one-of-a-kind space includes six main venues: Broad Street Bullies Pub, PBR Bar & Grill (Professional Bull Riders), Philly MarketPlace, Spectrum Grill, Victory Beer Hall and the first-ever NBC Sports Arena. XFINITY Live! is a joint partnership between Philadelphia-based Comcast-Spectacor and Baltimore-based The Cordish Companies.
Featuring a 32-foot-diagonal high-definition LED screen in the venue’s NBC Sports Arena, XFINITY Live! is able to give Philly’s sports fans an unparalleled sports viewing experience. Known as Philly’s fourth stadium for all of Philly’s away games, XFINITY Live! has quickly become the place to watch Philly sporting events as it epitomizes the growth of South Philadelphia as Philly’s sports home.
After opening the venue with national act Third Eye Blind, XFINITY Live! continues to showcase local, regional and national acts every Saturday night. In the past six months, Matisyahu, Badfish, All American Rejects and Eddie Money have all rocked the Live! Stage for free concerts. Local, regional and national acts are scheduled weekly.
XFINITY Live! also entertains Philly’s youth as the venue hosts several "Family Fun Days" featuring free activities, movies and concerts geared toward guests of all ages.
The six main venues within XFINITY Live! are described below:
Philly MarketPlace: The heart of XFINITY Live! Philadelphia serves as a central gathering place for groups and grants guests access to each of the venues. Philly MarketPlace at XFINITY Live! Philadelphia is the showcase for many local institutions, including from South Philadelphia The Original Philadelphia Cheesesteak Co., Chickie’s & Pete’s and Old Original Nick’s Roast Beef, from downtown Philadelphia Mitchell & Ness retail store, and from Newtown, PA, Goodnoe’s Ice Cream. The largest open area inside XFINITY Live! Philadelphia, Philly MarketPlace features a VIP lounge, custom draft tables, a raw bar and world-class sports viewing.
Spectrum Grill: Created in the essence of the Spectrum itself, this sleek venue provides a sophisticated, intimate atmosphere and an extraordinary dining experience. The Spectrum Grill, the crown jewel of XFINITY Live! Philadelphia, features prime steaks, chops and seafood, and hosts one of Philadelphia’s finest cocktail parties nightly.
Broad Street Bullies Pub: This timeless neighborhood pub features authentic memorabilia from the legendary Broad Street Bullies Flyers team of the 1970s. Classic tavern meets gastropub, Broad Street Bullies Pub specializes in gourmet burgers and classic pub fare as well as an expansive variety of beer, including 48 drafts on tap. Bullies Pub serves lunch and dinner and often features live acoustic entertainment at night. The atmosphere is a well-balanced mix of classic meets comfortable — the ideal place to meet or celebrate a special occasion.
Victory Beer Hall: In partnership with Philadelphia’s Victory Brewing Company, the Victory Beer Hall is an unrivaled social experience, featuring elongated, beer hall style tables, a stage for live indoor entertainment and a 2,000-square-foot patio complete with a fire pit and a unique panoramic view of the Philadelphia skyline. The Victory Beer Hall’s signature celebration is craft beer, featuring an eclectic selection of regional Philadelphia brews as well as national brands.
NBC Sports Arena: Fans are offered a one-of-a-kind sport viewing experience at NBC Sports Arena, which features a 32-foot-diagonal, 6mm, high-definition LED television, high impact LED Rings displaying the Comcast SportsNet Ticker and in-game promotions that rival any live sports experience in the world, making for a true fourth stadium experience at the Philadelphia Sports Complex. With a full service menu, NBC Sports Arena is the best place to catch the game or host an unforgettable event.
PBR Bar and Grill: Country cool meets urban chic in the most stunning Western-themed venue to be unleashed on Philadelphia. Born from the toughest sport on dirt, PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Bar and Grill duplicates this powerhouse concept that has proven wildly successful in other markets, including Las Vegas, Houston, Baltimore and Kansas City. With authentic Tex-Mex cuisine served during the day and a country and southern rock party at night (featuring a mechanical bull), PBR Philly brings the party to XFINITY Live! Philadelphia. PBR Bar and Grill is home to the only mechanical bull in Philadelphia — one of the only bucking bulls on the East Coast, and one of the actual machines professional bull riders use to train on.
Outdoor Event Plaza: The expansive outdoor area of XFINITY Live! Philadelphia is centered around the XFINITY On Demand Theater, a 24-foot-wide LED video board that shows both sporting events and family-friendly movies. Adjacent to the XFINITY On Demand Theater is NBC Sports Field, which has a pro style, artificial turf field that is great for any outdoor activity.
