A new addition is bubbling up at Downtown Commons.

Fizz, a champagne and bubbles bar, will be added to the Sacramento entertainment district located near Golden 1 Center, home of the Kings. The NBA team and JMA Ventures, LLC announced the bar’s arrival Thursday morning.

Fizz, Sacramento’s first champagne bar, will open its 1,050-square-foot storefront this summer in Plaza East, across from the northeast side of Golden 1 Center.

“DOCO is becoming the entertainment destination that Sacramento has long deserved,” Matina Kolokotronis, Kings’ chief operating officer, said in a release. “When Fizz opens its doors, downtown guests will have another fantastic experience option when heading to Golden 1 Center events or when touring the best Sacramento has to offer in the new city center.”

Sacramento native Raymond James Irwin brings his champagne and sparkling wine knowledge and experience to DOCO, sharing the everyday celebration of Fizz with Sacramento. Having traveled the world, Irwin will bring drinks from as near as Clarksburg to as far away as South Africa – including products not available at other retailers in the region, according to the release.

“People love champagne and sparkling wine but there’s no place to explore the many different types and styles of fizz – we are going to change that,” Irwin said of Fizz. “Champagne and sparkling wine is exciting and full of energy – which is why we chose DOCO for our location.”

The bar will provide a variety of experiences, including a “grab-and-go” retail component and a champagne club. With several small plates available, including duck-fat fries, chips, salads, cheese boards and caviar, Fizz will be open before and after all events at Golden 1 Center.
