The space, which is over 13,000-square feet, allows members ample room to mingle while enjoying all-inclusive food and beverage and premium amenities, such as a full-service bar, seating and dining areas and visual access to both locker room areas. The Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge can be accessed only by courtside ticket holders and superstar season ticket holders in the first seven rows from the floor.
