Went to verizon Center to see the New Edition Concert featuring Salt and Pepa. The show was awesome! The acoustics in the Center is excellent. And how it was set up, it appeared that there wasn't a bad seat in the house. I must say the Verizon Center staff always do a good job. A great time, definitely a great... More

I love this arena. I have seen Capitals, Wizards and Mystics games here. The atmosphere is like no other. The fans are great. The food is great. The seats are all really great also with no obstructions. The teams are competitve and likeable.

Went to see a WNBA game here - pleasant staff, easily negotiable aisles, excellent access to mass transit, nice shops/attractions/restaurants nearby. My only complaint was, many of the food service operations inside the arena were not staffed for this game.

I am late sending this review but and doing so, anyway. Over the years, I have attended this venue for sports (games) and once concert (saw Maxwell back in 2009). The plus is I have obtained some very reasonably priced tickets for some of the events (back in the mid 2000s, sales rep RICK G. was great to interact with... More

We visited the arena to watch a wizards game. When there is an event crowds of people tend to come, so keep in mind that you might have trouble finding a parking spot. Parking fees during the events are over 30$. If you can use mass transit to get in, do so.

Attended the Lady Gaga ArtPOP Ball here at the Verizon Center. Overall our experience was a good one. Although our seats were high up, we had a great view of the stage and large screens from our seats. There were plenty of food and beverage choices and the prices were fairly average for stadium/concert events. The restrooms were clean and... More

Metro is the way to go! My 11 year old was so excited about this birthday gift. The whole family went and its was loads of fun. Be prepared for the loud roar of the engines and to lose your voice from the crowd participation yelling. All in all....good fun and convenient location.
