  • First time here and having been to numerous arenas in the US and Canada found this one to be a very nice venue. Arena district is a must visit. 
  • NA is home ice for the Blue Jackets. We visit when the Black Hawks visit Columbus. It used to be 2 to 3 times per year but now only once. The club seating is comfortable and an adjacent restaurant and...  read more »
  • We rented a Tower Suite for a corp event and watched the hockey. Service and food great. We also did a half day meeting in one of their event spaces for the same 30 clients and prospects. A good event...  read more »
  • Went to see Coldplay there and it was fantastic. The arena is easy to access and offers great vantage points from all over. I would advise against parking in the Mconnell garage for the official event parking. It took us 45 minutes to even leave our parking space after the show. I would park a bit farther away and walk. Other than that it is a great venue.
  • Dear Nationwide Arena Security (For the 7-28-16 Coldplay Concert) Thank you for ruining the concert for everyone close to the stage on the floor. Your staff overreacted to folks dancing in the aisle periodically or walking up to the railing to take a photo of the band. Just when my wife and I were getting into a song a mob of 3 or more of your yellow and blue shirt thugs would come up and begin yelling for no reason for folks to get back in their seats. In fact even Chris Martin stopped the show at one point and complained as well after being distracted by your crack pot crew. I will never ever attend another concert at Nationwide Arena. Joe Timmons
  • I had a great time at the Nationwide Arena when went to the Columbus Blue Jackets game recently! The stadium itself is very nice and every seat seems to have a great view of the ice! Just a word to the weary though, be sure to sit on the opposite end of the stadium from the cannon if you aren't fond of loud explosion noises because they blow it off after every Blue Jackets goal and it's LOUD, especially if you are sitting right in front of it! Also, be sure to check out the guy playing the old school organ! He really wails on that things!! Let's go Blue Jackets!!!
  • Great atmosphere for a hockey game. This was my first pro hockey game I attended and it was great being there live. Nice comfy seats and decent food.
  • Really clean arena with some nice features. It's in a popular area of town, and there are plenty of interesting views from inside. It's a nice place to catch a concert or hockey game.
