So anyway, what are the rules to the fire and ice lounges? I always see someone checking tickets going in and never bothered going in. Are the lounges only open to certain tickets holders during the game? Are they open to anyone? How is the food? I have tickets in section 3, row 17.


You need a ticket to get in, period. I've heard a story where they didn't even let a Devils player that was out for a game into the ice lounge.

When you go in for the first time, they rescan your ticket, stamp the ticket and your hand, so you can't give it to someone else.

Since I can't go to many games because of the distance I always take my wife and kids to the lounges. I enjoy the food and of course the seats :) make sure you get there early for brunch! They serve eggs, bacon and more. The other foods served are hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken fingers, pizza...carving stations, sushi, pasta and the list goes on. The nonalcoholic drinks are included.

Decent. I remember there was a carving station, a made to order pasta station and build your own taco station. There was also a small dessert as well. The rest is pretty much the same but I remember the pizza were these small personal pizzas you can get and they make them in what looks to be wood burning ovens but not sure.

It's good...my wife always heads to the carving station and pasta. They loaded my plate so high with bacon and eggs I had to give some to my kids :)

They have cookies, brownies, pastries, candy and fruit for desert and snacks.

Re: private bathrooms

I'm gonna get all Larry David here...do the urinals in the private bathrooms have dividers? Or are they so called "on-holers" aka single serve.

Or are they just like regular men's rooms in the arena.

sorry i'm late to the topic - as a ice lounge STH since day 1 i'll answer as many questions about the lounge that have been asked

 

it's essentially the same since it opened. i have absolutely no problem with it and don't think it needs updating.

 

-as has been said, when it's a sell out, it can get a bit cramped but not too terrible

-bar stays open an hour after the game but very few people stay.

-carving station used to be its own but they combined it with the rotating food station on the lafayette entrance.

-cheeseburgers, french fries, chicken fingers, hot dogs on lafayette side kitchen

-salad bar on lafayette side (two soups also)

-coffee in the center

-sushi (same as at Yankee Stadium - not bad at all) - it used to be on the side by the goal bar but the line would snake all the way into the back corner by one of the mens bathrooms, so they moved it into the middle.

-hot food station by goal bar rotates 4 different foods each game - things like pastas, chicken, fish, etc

-what used to be a pasta station has been replaced by desserts which used to be in the center but moved to leave a little more open flow. desserts are usual cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, brownies

-pizza and pretzels on goal bar side kitchen

-the bar occasionally does have the frozen ice inlay but usually not anymore

-they did away with birch beer and replaced it with lipton brisk raspberry ice tea which is the worst

 

most nights, 35% of black seats are unfilled at least.

bathrooms do not have dividers between urinals

cool art on the walls in the ice lounge (black and white blurred hockey pictures)

The inlay wasn't that impressive anyway, it was a fraction of the bar width.

One of those ideas that probably was cooler in artist renderings, CGI, and in pure concept than it turned out to be in real life.  Kind of like the integrated cup holders in some of the standard seating that was quickly deep-sixed. 

 

sundstrom, all of the food items you listed is included with the price of the ticket?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

one of the local bars near me have this and its was the first/only place i had seen it until hearing about it here... it was just a small strip that ran the length of the bar and i believe it is there to help keep your drink cold but i doubt it really does much to be honest anyway more for show

If I remember right, I believe the 100's and 200's had cup holders too when the Rock first opened.  However, do to the squeeze and because of the steep incline the cup holders were in between the two seats in front of you down by the floor, so they were often kicked and knocked off.  I think after only a couple months they were taken out.

 

Barclays had that too when I went there in September.  The cup holders don't work in the uppers because of those exact reasons.

Yeah it was purely a gimmick but still kinda cool.  I don't think there ever was an actual CGI rendering of the ice slab and only just a description.  The way it sounded, I was expecting the entire countertop to be made of ice for a section that was about 6-10 feet in length.

Maybe some new carpeting and maybe new pictures but the Fire Lounge seems more dull then the Ice Lounge.
