  • I love St. Paul for many reasons, and the parking around Xcel Energy Center is one of them. Xcel is downtown but there's plentiful of street and ramp parking making it convenient and affordable. And since it's not full of one-ways (sorry Mpls folks!) you don't get lost when trying to find parking. Something I greatly appreciate :)
  • The Xcel Energy Center is a great venue for both sports and concerts. Minnesota Wild games are my primary reason for visiting. The Xcel is equipped with many modern amenities, and is always very clean. The staff are always helpful, and security maintains a great family environment. My only complaint would be the increase in concession prices while having the quality decrease. Very disappointing in that respect. In my opinion I would skip the concessions and make a reservation at the Jack Daniels #7. It is a great pre-game buffet located on club level. The food is always fresh and taste excellent.
  • Great place for concerts or games. We went to the last Adele concert - great show and the acoustics worked very well. We have also been to Wild hockey games there and even if they're losing, the arena still puts on a good show. Heck, I was even to a Star Wars traveling concert there a few years ago and that was awesome as well. Lots of concessions, lots of friendly staff.
  • I've attended a few concerts here as well as Wild hockey games. The acoustics in this venue for concerts are phenomenal. It is also a really cool place to watch hockey. My only complaint is that parking, especially before a Wild game, can be a cluster-f. Get there early.
  • Great Venue for everything they put on. Food is a little spendy but that is expected at sports venues. Always easy to find parking. Not a bad seat in the place.
