I have been to all NHL arenas in the league and this one is the last on my tour. Overall based on the in-seat experience and out-of-seat experience Barclays Center is solidly in the bottom 5. The exterior is visually interesting but in a way it has a slightly foreboding appearance with a very dark brown hull that presages the interior. Inside the entire arena is in black from top to bottom including the concourses and the seating. I mean it is 100% black which gave the entire experience a creepy dreary feel. The game I attended had a superhero theme and they had photo opps with costumed characters scattered around the lower concourse which was nice for kids. My seat was in the first row on the second level. All seats had cup holders attached to the back. The seat was pretty comfortable but the seats were quite close together, fairly typical of most of the other arenas. Since I was in the front row there was no seat in front of me but the seat pitch appeared to be pretty good in other rows. However the leg room was quite tight to the wall, making it awkward to stand to let other people step by. On the plus side the sight lines were good and the fidelity of the audio was excellent. I had a very disappointing “grilled” Italian chicken sandwich for $12, a big ripoff. The chicken breast had zero seasoning in it, literally it was a plain pale breast topped with a couple pieces of red pepper and onions with some pesto on a cold bun.

Easily accessible. Quick entry and friendly staff. Decent beer selection, average prices for a sports venue in NY. Haven’t had a chance to try any food yet, we’ll save that for the next trip. Obviously not as grand as a place like MSG but it’s a fun little venue. Would love to see it really packed, probably has a totally different atmosphere.

A great stadium with a subway directly outside.
Food was plentiful and seats more spacious than Madison Square Garden.
Great atmosphere.
Word of warning they do not take cash!!! Make sure you have a card.
