The world famous Kentucky Derby runs once a year at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May. And this year, fans flocking to Louisville can look forward to a number of new hospitality spaces underneath the spires of the iconic racing venue.
Emirates & Arsenal Football Club opened their first shared brand sports bar this summer. The space was the first collaboration between Club and Sponsor, and celebrates Arsenal and Emirates’ global reach.
20.20’s concept was to engage with Arsenal fans around the world and capture their journeys on match day. A global photoshoot was commissioned to help showcase fan stories in Emirates destinations - from a train journey in Mumbai to a cafe in South Africa - allowing fans in the Emirates bar on match day to understand what their fellow supporters get up to.
The Connell Club at Manchester City F.C. has been shortlisted in the Standalone Restaurant category of the Restaurant & Bar Awards 2013.
These popular awards are highly regarded, receiving entries from the world’s top architects, designers and hospitality operators. Judges consist of the most influential personalities and have included the editors of Wallpaper and Frame magazines, Karim Rashid and Alberto Alessi.
In preparation for the 2012/ 13 football season when Manchester City were eager to again win the Premier League, they decided to put some focus onto the long standing members of the club.
The two spaces 20.20 were asked to work on are the newly named Connell Club, which replaces the fine dining Boardroom offer and The Mancunian. This was an existing space that was completely refurbished as well.
