Washington, D.C. (October 3, 2023) – The Washington Wizards, Monumental Sports & Entertainment and Hennessy announced today enhancements of the Courtside Lofts for Wizards games at Capital One Arena. The new Hennessy Lofts area will be redesigned with the Hennessy brand at the forefront for every home game. This multi-year agreement builds on an existing relationship with the partners and Hennessy’s deep relationship with the National Basketball League.
“We have found the perfect partner in Hennessy to help us elevate the courtside viewing experience at Washington Wizards games,” said Patrick Duffy, Chief Partnership Officer for Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “Fans know they are getting consistent excellence from both of our brands, and we are aligned in continuing to innovate on unparalleled experiences for them.”

The branded area will complement previous partnership features, including the Hennessy branded bar available for all visitors on the first level concourse of Capital One Arena.
“At Hennessy, we strive to create authentic moments of connection with our consumers, and Hennessy Lofts delivers on that opportunity,” said Jasmin Allen, Senior Vice President at Hennessy U.S. “This unique viewing experience offers fans an elevated and truly personalized celebration of the game, both on and off the court.”
