Inside Tao Group’s Suite Sixteen at Madison Square Garden

TAO Group’s Suite Sixteen at Madison Square Garden (MSG) transports members to an opulent lounge that delivers TAO-style luxury combined with top MSG sports and entertainment. Packages range from a suite access membership that allows those who already have event tickets to access the suite’s amenities, to top-of-the-line memberships that include reserved suite seating for two to over 180 MSG sporting and entertainment events.

The suite has been completely transformed to immerse guests in the style of a world-class TAO Group venue, featuring 28 stadium seats with leather plush sofas divided by cantilevered chrome tables. A luxe leather tufted banquette wraps around half of the suite’s common area complete with cocktail tables and studded armchairs on a swivel base. Other go-to textures and fixtures throughout the members-only hang out includes wood veneer wall coverings, leather bar stools, chrome accents, and a crystal bar car.

Members are also presented with a changing variety of menu items straight from TAO Group’s restaurants, including Tao’s famous satay of Chilean seabass with a misoyaki glaze, Lavo’s meatballs, and Bodega Negra’s tacos, to name a few.

“This is exactly the kind of project we knew we could deliver if we brought TAO and MSG together, and we believe it’s just the beginning.” said Mr. Tepperberg. “Imagine if going to The Garden, or any of MSG’s iconic properties, meant the opportunity to go to one of the world’s coolest lounges as well. It’s clear that today, people expect so much more from live entertainment and hospitality, and both TAO Group and MSG are committed to combining what we each do best so we can raise the bar on what a world-class experience really means.” 

“Our venues have been synonymous with some of the most enduring and unforgettable moments in sports and entertainment history, and this initiative shows our commitment to ensuring that our guests feel that way about their total experience,” said John Abbamondi, executive vice president, Ticketing, Suites & Hospitality. “With TAO Group now part of the MSG family, we’re able to leverage the combined strength of two live experience companies to deliver a full spectrum of the finest premium hospitality offerings in the industry.”

Members also have access to additional benefits at TAO Group venues and other TAO Group pop-up events. For more information on Suite Sixteen and how to apply for a membership please visit or email
