  • I didn't see the match was open, although during the team shop at. I would have a chance even when many eateries around the game does not stop.

  • My partner and I went here to see the last show of Trans Siberian Orchestra for the year of 2017. It was an absolutely amazing show, I would definitely recommend the show. The prices for drinks are reasonable for a concert. Reasonable being 11.50 for a 24oz beer and 4 for water. Not horrible but okay. The arena was very clean and well staffed with security and associates for the event. Lines moved and overall it was a nice arena with a great show.
  • Beautiful arena, not a bad seat in the whole arena. They have really done an amazing job with this arena and keeping it modern. There are a wide array of great food options and a ton great craft beer options here. Staff is always helpful and willing to do anything to make the experience better. If you haven't been, then you have to come check out a bluejackets game here.
  • Wow!!! What a venue. This was my first time at Nationwide Arena. I was impressed by the facility. The door staff moved a large crowd through quickly and efficiently. The ushers were friendly and helpful. They escorted us straight to our seats. We saw Trans Siberian Orchestra the venue complimented the show. All and all it was a fantastic evening.
  • Nationwide Arena is an amazing place to go for any type of concert or a Columbus Blue Jackets game! I feel that everything is reasonably priced for any arena, the arena is always clean (especially the bathrooms). Even if you are in the "nosebleeds" there really isn't a bad spot in the house!!! Highly recommend everyone that visit Columbus to at least attend one event at Nationwide Arena!
  • I've now seen two Blue Jackets games here, and I've been very happy with my experience both times. The atmosphere is pretty electric, and it's just a fun, family-friendly place to watch some hockey. The seating is a bit odd and confusing, and place I sat (Tower 4), had a somewhat obstructed view, but I didn't think it really took away from the experience any. Also, the military discount and student rush tickets are just great deals! I am really thankful they do that and think it's a great way to give back.

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.
