    Did they renovate and take out the tables that overlook the arena? Do any of them still overlook the arena? Anyone have photos?

    Thanks!

    It's not a bad design, but it's sometimes distracting while watching the game. It changes colors.

    Four person mini suites
    They are looking to sell more/expensive tickets.

    I asked my rep. Those mini suites are $150K / Year (incl. Kings, Lakers, & Clippers). And according to my friend who asked his rep, you can get one with unlimited food for the year for $350K.

    Doesn't seem all that amazing for 150k/yr.

    150k doesn't seem horrible if your rich and want to go to staples games a lot. It includes all playoff games too right?

    Even without playoff games since they seat 4 people that works out to $305 a person. That is of course if that isn't a per person price which it could be making at $1219. But those aren't exactly for us common fans.

    305 a person is a lot for Kings
    The suite above them goes for 2500 ish a game or 125 a person.
    Also 350k for food (free food per Kings fan Matty perry) is about 406 a game per person. Thats a lot for "free food"

    For a Kings game yes but for where Lakers tickets have gone in the past a deal. It would also depend on what exactly they are serving for food. When I was there and had my seats my wife and I could spend $25-30 a game for food without any alcohol. For those days when one of us was rushing home from work and didn't have time to eat. And that was just the standard grub.

    I don't know how many of these exclusive suites are occupied, but it's a good way for them to increase their inventory and revenues. Whatever it takes that can afford Lombardi to spend as he pleases on hockey ops.

    The main downside I see is that there now appears no reason whatsoever to go to the San Manuel Club. If you can't watch the game from your dining table, what's the point? I'm not going to pay to get into Staples Center to sit in a restaurant and not watch the game - or to watch the game on a TV.

    The color-changing LED lighting is totally cool. :golfnana:

    I cannot confirm though if it is $150k cool.

    And unless they filled that loophole if it counted as a luxury box it doesn't go to HHR. And since it is for all 3 teams my guess is it does.
