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.

  • Lines move fast for concerts and sporting events. Food is decent but pricey. Very convenient to transportation (street parking can be found if you're willing to walk). Always a good time to be had here!
  • Very convenient location for train. There's plenty of option for food and drinks. I had seasoned pass but the staff didn't tell me where it was located so I ended up paying when I could've gotten free food. 5/5 location access 2/5 staff friendliness
  • This is a clean, modern venue. Security is thorough but efficient. As might be expected, food prices are on the high side. Attended the Jordan Classic basketball event and had a great experience
  • The architecture of this place makes it worth your while. I loved going there to watch an NBA match. You can get convenient tickets now that Brooklyn Nets are not that hot in the championship. The crowd was very nice and the experience was memorable. Overpriced food stands inside and small seats are par of the course at NBA venues, so nothing unusual on that aspect.
  • Great venue! Went three times in a week. Basketball, concert and ice hockey! All equally entertaining. Plenty of facilities and good transport links.
