NBA City was established in August of 1999 at Universal Studios Resort in Orlando, marking
the NBA's debut in upscale, casual dining. Since its opening, NBA City
has been twice voted "Best Theme Restaurant in Orlando" by the Orlando Sentinel.
NBA City's second restaurant was opened in February of 2006 in the Target Center Arena home of the Minneasota Timberwolves in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The restaurant's menu features a delicious mix of fresh and high-quality
American cuisine, including grilled steaks, hamburgers, fresh pastas,
brick oven pizzas, salads, and sandwiches. All of the desserts are made
from scratch and are sure to please anyone's sweet tooth.
NBA City Orlando's design is dramatic yet warm and comfortable, reminiscent
of the classic arenas from the 1940s and 1950s. A 33-foot tall statue of the NBA's
"Logoman" greets guests as they enter. The restaurant is 17,500 sq. feet and
seats up to 352 on two levels. Private party space is available from an intimate
VIP room for 25 to a cocktail reception for 800.
NBA City Minneapolis's design is that of a luxury box inside the arena as it is equipped
with high definition state of the art flat screen TV's throughout the restaurant and at the
courtside bar, which is the center attraction of the venue. The restaurant seats up to
300 guests and has private party space available for all types of events. The Naismith
room provides a great VIP space to entertain clients or staff members.
Both restaurants are a complete dining and entertainment experience with exclusive
programming, created by NBA Entertainment from their video archives, an interactive area
where guests can test their basketball skills, a bar/lounge with an exciting atmosphere
to watch the game, and a retail store where guests can find exclusive NBA City merchandise
along with authentic NBA gear the players wear.
