The following is a partial press release from the Cardinals that was distributed this morning regarding the announcement of a new bar which will open at Ballpark Village:
The St. Louis Cardinals, The Cordish Companies and PBR (Professional Bull Riders, Inc.) announced today that PBR St. Louis: A Cowboy Bar will open at Ballpark Village making it the eighth location across the United States.
From the toughest sport on dirt comes the fastest growing country concept in the nation, PBR. PBR St. Louis will bring an authentic country experience to Ballpark Village. PBR has agreed that this will be their only venue within the St. Louis region.
Sean Gleason, Chief Operating Officer of the PBR, stated, “PBR wants to be in world-class districts within very special cities and there is no doubt that Ballpark Village in St. Louis fits the bill. PBR is one of the fastest growing, most exciting and popular sports in the country, selling out arenas from Madison Square Garden to Las Vegas, as well as being nationally televised. Our goal with the PBR club was to create a concept that captures both the electricity that is PBR as well as the warm camaraderie that exists between our patrons at our events. PBR club does both and does so in spectacular fashion. We’re excited to make this announcement as the PBR returns to St. Louis this weekend with the Built Ford Tough Series at Scottrade Center.”
“We appreciate PBR’s investment in St. Louis,” said Phyllis Young, Alderwoman, 7th Ward. “PBR St. Louis promises to be a happening place that will bring a lot of boots downtown.”
Bill DeWitt, President of The St Louis Cardinals, stated, “PBR is a perfect addition to Ballpark Village. We are focused on making Ballpark Village the premier entertainment destination for the region and for our fans and PBR will help us accomplish that goal.”
