Fantastic venue and a fantastic game! Great services and amenities and the private boxes are class! Plus the Caps won which was the perfect end to a VIP night out enjoying some awesome ice hockey action!

First time at the Verizon Center. It was a beautiful facility. Very clean. The Metro stops under the Center, so traveling to and from was easy. And it was an awesome show to boot :)

Lucky enough to reserve a suite for a Wizardsgame plus garage parking. Absolutely wonderful!! The food was amazing. We started off with pretzels, dip, hot dogs and meatballs. The meatballs were so moist and gooey with cheese. Then they brought in chicken wings, mac and cheese, a fruit plate, parfaits. Omg everything was perfect.. A stocked bar, every kind of... More

We were in D.C. right after Christmas. II live in Beijing with my wife but I’m from LA and grew up following basketball. I had hoped the Lakers would be in town. It so happened that the Clippers were in town. I thought just maybe we might be able to watch a Clipper Wizards game. I really dislike the Clippers... More

We went to the Verizon Center for a Washington Capitals vs NY Rangers game. Had great seats in section 104. Venue was very nice - comfortable seats - we were in the last row of the section - they even had hooks for our coats behind us. Got to see players up close during warm ups.... All around great time... More

Wonderful tickets "on the floor" at the Wizzards game against the Celtics. It was throw back night, so the Wizzards were dressed as the Bullets. The Verizon event staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. The only issue was that the staff was about 30 minutes late setting up the metal detectors so a long line formed waiting to get into...

Enjoy traveling down to Verizon Center via Metro from Maryland. Mainly attending basketball games, so cannot say what it is like during any other events. Good basketball arena and have always had a fun time watching the Wizards. Tons of places to eat and drink around the arena too.

Even if you don't care much for hockey,, make time ⌚ to go see the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Centre this season.. 👀 They are the class of the NHL, skate fast and score tons of goals. Really entertaining day out for the whole family.. The arena itself is standard... The talent is exceptional.
