A new bar that opened in the Barclays Center is here to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Thanks to a new partnership with Hershey, those who come to the Barclays Center for a Brooklyn Nets game can enjoy a sweet treat at the new Hershey Bar. The first-of-its-kind bar serves both non-alcoholic beverages and spiked cocktails, including milkshakes made with Hershey’s and Reese’s products, hot chocolate, Jolly Rancher mixed drinks and a Hershey’s chocolate martini.

“We are excited to partner with the Barclays Center and Levy to test these new confectionary and snacking concepts,” said Allen Dark, Director of Disruptive Growth at Hershey. “Working with both teams in the heart of Brooklyn has been an exceptional experience, and we are looking forward to bringing successful ideas to live sports and entertainment venues worldwide.”

The Hershey Bar has already become the go-to spot for those coming to the Barclays Center. Guests have been providing positive feedback, including that the Hershey adds to the diverse food and beverage offerings of the venue.

“Our goal at Levy is to provide memorable food and beverage experiences that complement the exciting event that fans are attending,” said Pawel Brzezinski, Area Vice President of Hospitality Strategy at Levy, the Official Food and Beverage Partner of Barclays Center. “The Hershey Bar has been very popular among guests at Barclays Center, and has been instrumental in helping us enhance our customer experience.”

“Since Barclays Center opened it has not only become one of the world’s busiest sports and entertainment venues, but also a premier food and beverage destination, widely known for the uniqueness of its concessions offerings,” said Bryan Calka, Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships at BSE Global. “We’re thrilled to elevate our concession options even further by partnering with one of the world’s top snack companies, Hershey, to create this one-of-a-kind space for our guests to enjoy.”

The Hershey Bar is located on the Barclay Center’s main concourse outside section 17. It’s open during Brooklyn Nets home games, and select concerts and events at Barclays Center.
