Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
An indoor arena for sports and entertainment in the heart of Brooklyn, Barclays Center can host up to 18,000 people for games, concerts, and other events that take place throughout the year. Though the 2009 recession threatened to shut down construction, in 2012 the site opened to the public and hosted its first major event, a Jay Z concert. Home of the National Basketball Association's Brooklyn Nets, the center is now one of the most popular event arenas in the greater New York City area. Check the website for future offerings, or take a guided tour of the arena as part of its twice-daily VIP Access Tour Program.

  • The games here are fun, but MAN OH MAN is the food overpriced. Something like $5 for a small Coke and $5 for a pretzel? Unreal.  more »

  • This is the first time at the Barclays Center, I attended​ a graduation ceremony. The center was big, clean and staff were very helpful. The seat were comfortable. I'm not into sports or concerts but I was very happy to know that center is open to other events which gave me the opportunity to see the inside of the center.
  • This place is beautiful. It's fun to go for a game or concert but even more fun to go during a private event. I was there for Own The Room, with about 80 other guests. We had the place to ourselves for two full days and our breakout sessions took place in the suites. The food was delicious and the service was great!
  • The Barclays itself is beautifully​ done. The prices with any venue are expensive. I would recommend to anyone not to get the "nosebleed" seats if you're acrophobia like myself. Definitely will return but I'll be sure to get lower level seats.
  • I visited the Barclays Center for a tour, not for an event but I was able to see pretty much everything. This arena is state of the art and extremely modern, which I admire. It's extremely clean and the seating is comfortable as well opposed to other places like MSG. I was able to check out the practice facility, the locker room hallways, the suites and the various bars in the center and it was an amazing experience. I think the best feeling was actually being on the court. I felt like a basketball player for a second haha.
  • Better spend money for non nosebleed seats. Too afraid to move during the concert. People were falling over one another
