Xfinity Live…Sneak Preview of New Sports Bar!

Xfinity Live

Comcast and its NBC brand will be amply represented at the new Xfinity Live! sports/entertainment complex on the former site of the Spectrum in South Philadelphia.

So will local restaurants, including Victory Brewing Co., Original Philadelphia Cheesesteak Co., Chickie’s & Pete’s, and Nick’s Roast Beef.

The project, whose working name was Philly Live, has the backing of the hometown cable giant.

Cordish Cos., the developer, and Comcast-Spectacor, the operator, view the project as a “fourth stadium experience,” complementing neighbors Wells Fargo Center, Citizens Bank Park, and Lincoln Financial Field.

Grand Opening

The grand opening will kick off with a free live performance by Third Eye Blind on Friday, March 30th at 8pm. The project seems to be on schedule. I took a walk through the construction site today just to see how far away we are from out newest addition of the mega sports bar. With Chickie’s & Pete’s and McFadden’s within walking distance, I knew this place was not going to spare any expenses to compete with these 2 well established icons in our Sports Complex. And boy was I right on the money!  This place is  unlike any other,  I was amazed  to finally see a real restaurant in this complex-    The  Spectrum Grill is a higher end steak house and just a small portion of Xfinity Live . I also noticed that they used the original floor from the Spectrum which adds  a nice nostalgic charm to the entrance.
