One of the best kept secrets at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center is the Heineken House. Located on the top of the food court, this hidden gem is tucked away from the action and gives tennis goers a welcoming relaxed atmosphere to take in some of the matches and more importantly have some fun.
The entrance is located by Court 17 and as you walk up the stairs you have a patio atmosphere with some light backyard snacks and of course Heinekens readily available.
As you enter, you are met by a number of the Heineken Girls who will show you everything that is going on at the House.
The menu consists of four sandwiches, including the Lobster Roll with four ounces of Maine Lobster on a New England bun for $17.50. Also for the non-seafood eating people, the Zesty Italian Combo, is a thick sandwich of Italian meats for $15.00. There is also the Turkey Panini for $10.50 and the vegetarian Godfather sandwich for $12.00.
For those not as hungry, there’s a snack menu with Cod Chips for $3.50, Chips And Guacamole for $12.00 and a Classic Shrimp Cocktail for $20.00
Of course, all of this is washed down by Heineken brand including Heineken, Heineken Light, and the hard apple cider Strongbow. All of which are available in the souvenir Heineken glass.
Besides the food, the Heineken house also has a number of tennis games and activities, including a beanbag tossing game and some electronic tennis games in the Legend’s section, which is new for 2014.
There is also some new technology on display with the space age tap that prevents any air from coming in until it is in the glass.
No visit is complete without a complementary picture with your choice of racquets or tennis balls for your and your friends. Remember to use the hashtag #heinekenhouse if you are tweeting or posting it on Social Media.
And if you want, there’s a store with a number of different shirts and hats available.
The Heineken House is the best kept secret of the Open with so much to do, good food, and a fun time.
