Since owner Steve Cohen purchased the New York Mets in 2020, the franchise has enjoyed a luxury lifestyle that extends beyond its record payroll.
In honor of New York’s original owner Joan Payson, the Mets and Cadillac announced the team’s new speakeasy membership club behind the right field fence at Citi Field on Tuesday.
The Cadillac Club at Payson’s offers an exclusive baseball experience with just 100 seats, accommodating 25-30 members.
The club features lounge-style seating, individual flat-screen monitors, and an in-stadium concierge. Members will have assigned seats on game day and can enjoy complimentary parking, food, and beverages.
Membership does not come cheap. First-row seating costs $24,999 per seat, which is not on sale. Third and fourth-row seating is available at a lower price of $19K per seat, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. Each member will also be able to buy guest passes.
“Alex [Cohen] and I are thrilled to honor the legacy of Joan Payson with The Cadillac Club at Payson’s,” Cohen said in a press release. “As the original owner of the Mets and pioneer, Joan has played a significant role in our organization.
“The Cadillac Club at Payson’s will combine the rich history of the Mets with unique elements that are reminiscent of classic New York City, providing Mets fans with an experience like no other.”
