We attended the Eagles concert at Rabobank Arena in May. The venue is a good one, but I wish the seating had been planned to allow for more room, and to be less steep. can be dangerous when mixed with alcohol. It is a good place for hockey, basketball, and concerts with the exception of the setting.

This is a nice sized arena that allows all seats to see the action. We have attended concerts, hockey games & a special event or two. The parking is easy to get into and out of after the event.

I felt like I was in Vegas watching a great show and wasn't here in Bakersfield. The staff is very helpful in helping you find your seat and they had enough concession stands that you... More

It is a small arena next to the train tracks along the main drag. It appears to be in a safe area. Easy to get to. There is a parking garage across the street that appears to be available on the weekends only. Otherwise there is street parking.

We like this place. Top notch. Whomever is managing this - Well done! You can always find parking on the streets surrounding the place a short walking distance away with paying a fee. Yes its safe! Have fun! Oh yes, so your disabled? Have someone drop you off and then park.

They put on a lot of great shows and sporting events here. It would be nice to have more top name performers in all genres come to play here. :D

Went to see Varekai at the The Rabobank. This is a pretty good sized arena, ive seen plenty of events here. The staff is really helpful and its pretty clean with lots of bathrooms. Get there early, parking is a bit of a challenge
