I went with my boys to watch sharks game here. It was a nice experience. Loved the music. Parking, food and drinks were expensive just like any other place.

Great place to see any venue. View is good from anywhere. But if you can afford to get lower section seating,do it. Its worth the money. Now as for money. The parking jackup is ridiculous. It costs 25 bucks just to park. So outrageous

The SAP center is wonderful. The temperature inside is just right. There are plenty of restrooms. They are great at helping the handicap with seating and security. There is a wide array of food vendors and people selling theme related shirts,etc.

I recently went to a Barracuda game and the food lines were long and slow the whole game. Most of the taps were not working for the $2.00 beers. At least it wasn't smelly beer like it is during the Sharks games.

Great venue for a sporting event. Lower level is best for feeling the action. Parking onsite for a nominal fee but better prices than most centers with this type of entertainment.

Love this place. My beloved sharks play here. Drop offs and pick ups are super easy here. Even better if you use Stockton street just on the other side of the railroad tracks. The crews seem to keep up real well with the cleaning. The...More

I've been going to this Arena for many years for different events since it was still HP Pavilion. It has a great location close to Downtown San Jose, you can get there by Caltrain, Light rail, bus and just off ramp 87. Parking is expensive,...More

It's a beautiful arena that has hosted some pretty big events, parking is nice and close unlike other event centers where you need to walk a dozen or more blocks to get there, lots of close street parking if you do want to save money...More

Has anyone ever parked at the Children's Museum for free when attending an event at SAP?? I attending a concert last year and parked there for free and my car was still there after the show with no ticket (despite all the no parking signs) was this just a lucky time or does anyone else ever do that??

Uber is the best. Light takes you part of the way or buses. Still, point to point Uber is the best.
