DELL TECHNOLOGIES CLUB: This club will feature top-of-the-line interactive technologies and a Hill Country-inspired aesthetic, using natural materials for the interiors.

INDEED CLUB: Inspired by the local music scene, this club takes its design cues from East Austin and classic Austin venues like the Continental Club and the Broken Spoke.

ULTIMATE PREMIUM CLUB: Moody Center’s most exclusive, speakeasy-inspired space, this club offers a concert-going experience like no other with a secret entry, a dance floor, and the best views of the stage. 

PORCH SUITES: With Matthew McConaughey’s design influence, the Porch Suites are located on the baselines and corners of the venue for basketball and looks directly onto the stage for concerts. Porch Suite seating is pushed out 10 feet into the arena, allowing attendees to feel more connected to the live event than ever before.

SIDELINE SUITES: Sideline Suites offer a private, enclosed area located closest to the stage for concerts, and closest to midcourt for The University of Texas basketball games.
