Renowned restaurant group to provide upscale hospitality in luxury space set to open in March 2017
CHARLESTON, SC - With the introduction of the all new Riley Park Club, the most significant building upgrade in the history of the Joe, the ballpark will be transformed into one of the Lowcountry's premiere hospitality destinations.
RiverDogs home games will offer an unmatched gameday experience, with luxury furnishings and upscale food offerings in a conditioned indoor space. Patrons will enjoy breathtaking sunset views over the Ashley River wetlands through floor-to-ceiling glass encompassing the Club, which will extend over the marsh to accentuate one of the best vistas in the greater Charleston area. With construction well underway, the RiverDogs are proud to announce that they have partnered with The Indigo Road as the exclusive catering provider for the Riley Park Club.
RiverDogs home games will feature signature items from a number of The Indigo Road's restaurants, catered directly by Mercantile and Mash, including Oak Steakhouse and O-Ku sushi branded specialties. The group also will cater many other events at the Club, including weddings, business conferences, and social events.
"The RiverDogs are thrilled to partner with Steve Palmer and The Indigo Road organization in the catering of the Riley Park Club. The quality and creativity of their food matches our desire to provide a unique, upscale experience for each attendee, whether it be at a RiverDogs baseball game or a Saturday evening wedding, as we begin a new era of top shelf hospitality at the Joe" said Marv Goldklang, Chairman and principal owner of the RiverDogs.
Game days at the Riley Park Club will feature complimentary beer and wine and a first class food experience in an all-inclusive ticket package. Construction of the Club is expected to be completed by early March, in time to host open houses and inaugural events prior to the RiverDogs 2017 baseball season.
"On behalf of The Indigo Road team, we are thrilled for Mercantile and Mash to be involved," said Steve Palmer, Managing Partner of The Indigo Road. "Led by Mercantile and Mash's executive chef Tim Morton, we are confident the culinary team will bring an elevated food experience to the RiverDogs venues."
Designed by Charleston-based architectural firm LS3P in collaboration with BallparkDesignAssociates, the Club Level is being built by Mashburn Construction on the first base side of The Joe. The Club's interior will feature lounge seating steeped in Lowcountry elegance, a drink rail overlooking the field of play, and padded, stadium-style seats on the exterior.
