There’s nothing like a beautiful day or evening at the ballpark. But watching a Brewers game in a luxury suite at Miller Park takes the experience to another level.

Miller Park has 60 Club Suites, three Party Suites, and one Executive Suite located on the recently renovated PNC Club Level of the stadium. On the Field Level of the ballpark are 19 Founders Suites.

Each suite offers open-air seating, lounge seating with a coffee table, a private restroom, a wet bar, flat-screen HDTVs, and complete catering and beverage service.

The lease rates for the Club Suites range from $152,768 for a full season (for suites near home plate) to $17,700 for a nine-game plan. The suites come with numerous additional benefits and experiences, depending on the number of games purchased. Available experiences include a visit from a Brewers alumnus, a visit to the Fox Sports Wisconsin booth and a chance to run in the Famous Racing Sausages race.

Some of the Miller Park luxury suites are available for individual game rental. The Party Suites have all of the amenities of a Club Suite, plus a larger lounge area and more ballpark seating. The Executive Suite has meeting space for up to 30 guests, including built-in A/V equipment and a view of the field. On game days, it is converted from a board room to a premium suite.

Back the Pack in ultimate comfort 

The “frozen tundra” is part of the legend and legacy of Lambeau Field in Green Bay. But some fans would rather enjoy the game from the comfort of a luxury suite.

Lambeau Field has 195 luxury suites. From 2015 to 2017, the Packers completed a $55 million project to renovate 175 of the suites. The improvements included operable windows (if you want to let the cold air in), renovated interiors and new furniture.

For the suites that are leased on an annual basis, Packers public affairs coordinator Katie Hermsen said, “Pricing depends on individual client contracts, proximity to the 50-yard line and size of the suite.” Suite prices start at $60,000 per season and go up from there depending on size and location.

Some suites at Lambeau are available for single game rental, including the Lambeau Suite, which is geared for group entertainment and was new in 2017. The Lambeau Suite can accommodate 36 people and for each game, a Packers alumnus watches the game there. The Lambeau Suite also features an enhanced menu offering, restroom located in the suite, a dedicated suite attendant and bartender, and an indoor/outdoor design.

Single-game prices for a regular season game will range anywhere from $8,100 up to $49,000 for the Lambeau Suite. The single game suite price includes the suite, tickets, a food package and a beverage package.

New arena offers the latest in luxury suites   

Set to open this fall, the new $524 million arena for the Milwaukee Bucks will offer the latest in high-end entertainment amenities.

That includes the arena’s 34 luxury suites, which have been in high demand. All but two of them are sold out.

The arena’s luxury suites are all leased on long-term, multi-year deals. Prices range from $225,000 to $350,000 per year.

Those leases are for all of the events at the arena, including Bucks games, Marquette University men’s basketball games and concerts.

The suites have 12 to 18 seats each and additional room to stand and watch the games. Each suite has three TVs, leather furniture, quartz countertops and Sub-Zero high-end refrigerators.

Unlike the suites at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, which each have their own bathroom, the suites at the new arena will share a luxury restroom, said Jamie Morningstar, senior vice president of ticket sales and service for the Bucks. That move created more space in the suites “for people to enjoy themselves,” she said.

The design of the new arena is more geared toward basketball than the hockey-friendly Bradley Center, so the sightlines from the suites at the new arena are also better, Morningstar said.

“The views are tremendous,” she said. “You just feel like you are on top of the court.”

The stadium seats in the suites are set within the main seating bowl, so suiteholders can get close to the action, or opt for privacy within the box.

“It’s the best of both worlds,” Morningstar said.
