The world’s first official Arsenal-themed sports bar and restaurant is set to open in China next month.
The flagship sports bar and restaurant, Arsenal Club Shanghai, will open at the Lyceum Building on the Bund in Shanghai in June. It will offer fans in China the opportunity to eat and drink in Arsenal surroundings while watching live games and exclusive content on the restaurant’s state-of-the-art cinema style screens.
The restaurant will feature unique life-size player holograms and Arsenal memorabilia, including signed items. The menu will include classic English and European food, including football fan favourites like fish and chips, pies and burgers.
The Arsenal Club Shanghai will be run by Super Halo Sports Culture Development, who have acquired an exclusive license with us in the greater China region, including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. They plan to open a second Arsenal sports bar and restaurant in Beijing in the summer.
Vinai Venkatesham, our chief commercial officer, said: “We are delighted to be working with Super Halo on the new Arsenal-themed sports bars and restaurants in China. This will bring our fans in China closer than ever to the team and give them an authentic Arsenal experience away from Emirates Stadium.”
Feng Xuejun, Super Halo chief executive, said: “Through this landmark agreement with Arsenal we aim to set a benchmark for the football-themed entertainment industry and plan to make the Arsenal Club Shanghai the best sports bar and restaurant for football fans in Shanghai.”
Arsenal Club Shanghai can be found in the Lyceum Building on No. 185 Yuanmingyuan Road on the Bund with an official opening date to be announced.
