  • We love the intimacy of this venue. We have season tix for the hockey team and have seen Cirque du Soleil, globetrotters, Amy Schumer and tons of concerts. Word of advice- it's cold inside, dress warm...  more »
  • This was my first experience with a live hockey game or Germain Arena. It is very fast paced and the venue was very nice. This a great way to spend an evening with friends. Be sure to take a heavy swe...  more »
  • The seating at the Germain arena are absolutely insufficient. Perhaps meets the seat pitch for a child, or one "Small"! If someone took something to drink, he trampled first on dozens of feet around, although their owners had collected. The offer of drinks and food was also flawed. Although the stands widely for different meals, the same Junk food has been offered anywhere!

  • I've been here for quite a few things: hockey, WWE, and MMA. The service has always been good. On my last visit to watch the Everblades, I had never been up to the bar area above the seats that overlook the hockey arena. What a neat area. And they were doing discounted shots for every goal the Everblades scored. The Everblades scored 5 goals that night. Yeah. Pretty good venue.
  • Excellent venue for hockey game. No obstructions to the view. Variety of food options. Easy access. Reasonable price. Fun special $2 beer, wine dogs & hotdog Wed games.
  • Awesome view of the hockey game from every seat in the arena. Excellent entertainment value.
  • Saw lynrd skynyrd and zz topp at this venue. I loved them both!
  • Great place to hang out and great place for concerts too. Just make sure you dress well no matter the occasion or where in the stadium you're sitting. It's cold either way being that there's an ice rink.
