#7 of 25 in Sightseeing in Brooklyn
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.

  • I went to J.Cole's "4YEO" tour at the Barclay Center, which was my first time being there and I really enjoyed it. The venue is nice and clean and pretty easy to find your way around. The concert was ...  more »

  • This place I kind of refrain from going here unless I have no other choice. If I know the event I'm going to has another date at another arena I prefer that one over Barclays. If you're going to a music artist concert or basketball game it's going to be about 50% more organized than if you were to go to a musical play or show other than that. When it's not a music artist's show the place is a zoo and the staff they have on board is nothing but ghetto and HIGHLY unprofessional, cursing, and carrying on at the guests. It's disgusting. I assume they hire people off the street. Anyone can get a job there. The smoking should be prohibited since it is a public venue and kids are around. I can't with Barclays. 👎🏾👎🏾
  • 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 acrophobic 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.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
