The Budweiser Terrace on Level 3 & 4 in right field is a perfect destination to socialize and enjoy a view of the game without an assigned seat. The Budweiser Bowtie Bar on Level 2, behind the Leftfield Porch seats, features a sports bar atmosphere and a full service bar. Field level options include the Backstop Bar on the concourse behind section 150 near home plate, or the popular Budweiser 1876 Bar behind the Bleachers in centerfield. For a great birdseye view of the ballpark, head to the Perficient Perch on Level 3 behind Infield Pavilion seats on the 3B side.
