We always come to a Columbus Blue Jackets hockey game. Love the arena, nice selection of food vendors. Great atmosphere and fans. A lot of good places close by to eat at before the game.

Came here with a group of friends, and we had nosebleeds, but even in the nosebleeds you're still involved with the game. They do fan giveaways, they have reasonably priced food, and best of all everyone was so nice. I would go 100 other times...More

The Arena District was definitely my favorite part of Colombus. Lots of good restaurants and bars around. I love the brick roads!
