Been here quite a few times. Good sound, nice atmosphere. Some seats have side views which can be hard on the neck after a while. Seats run a bit small and high food and beverage costs.

As you plan to have thousands of people attend a concert, you need to have more women's restrooms available. So if you plan to see a concert at this venue, remember to use it while your favorite band is playing or wait until the intermediate,...More

Very easy to navigate, plenty of parking in the area and easy to locate staff made for a great experience overall. Our floor seating was TIGHT but we could see Alan Jackson very well, so it was worth it. It isn’t the most beautiful locale,...More

Try the Pratt Street Ale House. Just a couple of blocks from the Arena. Outdoor seating, good food and atmosphere. Others nearby, plenty to do if you arrive early. Have fun!
