Hospitality & Amenities

Hospitality & Amenities

The timeless entrance allee, known as Linden Lane, is lined by 130-year-old European linden trees that form a living canopy, while field stone walls separate the lane from its surrounding manicured grass fields, as it leads gradually to the polo grounds of the Newport International Polo Series.  From Linden Lane, there are two primary entry gates on the right-hand side, leading onto the polo grounds: the Main Gate and the Lower Gate.  The Main Gate opens at 1pm on the day of the match, and the Lower Gate opens at 2:30pm.  Enter at either gate, with your bar-coded tickets purchased online or make your purchases at the gate.

The venue offers tableside seating within the Pavilion, on various levels of the pavilion or at tables on the lawn, with beverage service from the Twisted Pony bar (outside beverages are NOT permitted within the Pavilion).  There is also lawn seating or bleacher seating with General Admission.  A portion of the lawn seating offers Reserved Tailgate Parking.  Reservations for tailgate parking spaces are available online only, by following the calendar pages to the desired match.

A hospitality area with vendors, food concessions, and full-service bar is located between the main gate and the Pavilion.  Unique sampling, jewelry, electric bikes, imported leather goods and cutlery, and official sportswear & souvenir merchandise of the Newport International Polo Series in the Polo Pro Shop are among an interesting collection of boutique vendors.

Food and beverage concessions include a variety of gourmet food trucks, and a wide assortment of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at the Twisted Pony Bar for walk-up service. The Twisted Pony has American and imported craft beer, boutique fine wines by the glass or by the bottle, Veuve Clicquot Champagne, Stella Artois on tap, signature cocktails, and soft drinks.
