The Pittsburgh Pirates today officially unveiled plans to introduce for 2015 four exciting projects that will
enhance the PNC Park experience for Pirates fans. The projects, three of which will provide enhancements for
Pirates fans in the general seating area, will create additional fun spaces for fans to congregate and share the
game experience with family and friends.
The Pirates will officially unveil the enhancements prior to the 2015 Home Opener on Monday, April 13 as the
Pirates take on the Detroit Tigers beginning at 1:35 p.m.
Leftfield Terraces and “The Porch”
The Pirates will add a two-level standing room terrace with drink rails behind the left field bleachers. The
terraces will connect the pervious gap between the Upper Bleacher section in left field and the Rivertowne
Brewing Hall of Fame Club. The new terraces will measure more than 250 linear feet and will be accessible to
all fans as a standing room area.
The terraces will also provide fans with direct access to the Rivertowne Brewing Hall of Fame Club through the
newly installed sliding glass doors that allow entry from both the Upper Bleacher sections and the Allegheny
Health Network left field rotunda. The doors will allow fans to freely flow in and out of the club, which is open
to all fans.
In addition, the Pirates are creating a new, separate outdoor patio adjacent to the new terraces that will
overlook center field. “The Porch” will provide a very unique game experience as the space features barstool
and outdoor sofa-style seating and can accommodate groups of approximately 25 people. The Porch will be
sold to individual groups on a game-by-game basis. Fans interested in hosting a group on The Porch can call 1-
800-BUY-BUCS or email to be one of the first to reserve the spot for the 2015 season.
Leftfield Rotunda Bar
The Pirates will add a new outdoor bar at the base of the iconic PNC Park left field rotunda. Much like the
extremely popular Budweiser Bow Tie Bar that was introduced in 2012, this new amenity will give fans an area
to gather and enjoy the ballpark experience.
The space will feature a 40-foot long bar and will offer a variety of beers, including a number of craft brews.
Fans can relax at the bar or at the 60 linear feet of new standing drink rails, while watching the game on a 9-
television display integrated into a new corten steel wall in the back of the space.
In order to ensure fans remain connected to the action, the Pirates have also created new sight lines from the
bar area to the playing field by removing block walls previously housing a storage closest under the first level of
the rotunda.
300 Level Concourse Bar
The Pirates will add a full-service bar in PNC Park’s 300 Level concourse. It is the first-of-its-kind amenity for
fans sitting in the ballpark’s upper deck. The 28-foot long outdoor bar will be located in the concourse behind
section 316 at the top of the Trib Total Media Home Plate rotunda.
The area was created by tearing down what was previously a concession and merchandise stand and creating
a gathering area for fans to interact and share in the PNC Park experience. The full-service bar will serve beer,
including several craft selections, wine and mixed drinks and will feature bar-height tables with barstool seating
and seven flat screen televisions to ensure fans don’t miss any of the action. The Pirates will also install sun
shading and oversized industrial ceiling fans for fan comfort.
