The Emirates Suite at the US Open’s Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, Queens is considered to be the most luxurious and most highly coveted Suite experience. 2022 saw new updates to the Suite, including new furniture and a new flight map as well as an updated food and beverage menu for invited VIP guests.
The Emirates Suite offers premier views of the courts as well as the utmost level of privacy and exclusivity. The air-conditioned and spacious Suite boasts the same highly sought-after hospitality and luxurious detail as one would receive on a Business or First-Class flight on Emirates Airline.
The Emirates Suite is able to host up to 80 people. Emirates Airline’s relationship with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) extends back to 2012.
Guests of the invite-only Suite are offered cold towels, sunscreen, and the signature red Emirates baseball caps.
In addition to hosting guests during the US Open tennis matches, the Emirates Suite hosts families during Arthur Ashe Kids Day. On that day that takes place before the US Open commences, invited guests are welcome to spend the afternoon at the Emirates Suite. The Suite hosts a variety of activities and provides delicious snacks and treats, including a create-your-own sundae station.
Emirates Suite Cuisine
During the afternoon, a full buffet spread is typically served beginning at 12pm, when the Suite opens for the games. In the evenings, the Suite starts serving dinner at 7pm.
Hors d’oeuvres are also served just before lunch and dinner and may include dishes like steak tartare and vegetable tempura.
The buffet typically includes salad, fresh fruit, pasta salad, seafood, steak, chicken, and a full sushi and sashimi bar. The Emirates Suite is also the only space to have a private sushi chef throughout the entire US Open. Sushi and sashimi are served during both the afternoon and evening matches.
For dessert, macarons, a carrot cake, miniature pies, fruit tarts, brownies, and cookies are generally served. This is in addition to a full assorted fruit spread and an elaborate cheese board.
One of the favorite conveniences of the Emirates Suite is that you are able to discreetly step away from your stadium suite and retreat for a beverage refill or some snacks at any moment during or between matches.
Prefer to stay inside and watch the matches? There are high top tables and booths, as well as two flat screen televisions for your viewing convenience.
Drinks include soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine, champagne, and a selection of top shelf liquors. Regular food and beverage service is provided during the matches as waitstaff come to check in on each and every guest on a regular basis.
