Warriors' Bridge Club Becoming Hot Spot For Silicon Valley, Hollywood VIPs
Warriors co-Owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber "have made Warriors' games the place to be for the cool kids," and they are "doing it in a uniquely Bay Area way," according to Al Saracevic of the S.F. CHRONICLE. The Warriors' Bridge Club at Oracle Arena is a "swanky secret sanctum," and a "plush little party room, stocked with fine food and finer wine." The club sees "Silicon Valley swells mix with local celebrities and Hollywood types behind a huge, one-way, looking-glass wall." It is a place "where favored guests can lounge around in the pregame glow, watching players pass to and fro." Those seen in the Bridge Club this season include YouTube co-Founder & CEO Chad Hurley, actors Matthew Perry and Chris Tucker, and professional poker player Phil Helmuth. Lacob and Guber "wanted a place to party before, during and after games." Tech money is "back in full force" in the Bay Area, and the Warriors' ownership "speaks the language" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/22).
