Watched the San Jose Sharks play a game here a few days ago. I was shocked at how small the arena is. It reminded me more or an AHL arena than an NHL arena. No third level or seating.

We've been there for several events: concerts, shark games. Always well organized and clean. We parked just across street Caltrain parking lot, it has a cost but it's safe and close.

SAP center is a great place to see events at. The ushers, ticket takers and concession personnel are always very friendly and the food is good.

Our first time to SAP Center. Excellent acoustics, seating easy to get to. Enough staff to direct you. We walked from San Jose Marriott which with the traffic was faster than driving.

My husband and I have been season ticket holders for the SJ Sharks since the arena opened. After so many years it is still well-maintained and a place where I always feel safe. Having attended other events at SAP, I prefer sporting events over concerts; the acoustics are not good for musical performances.

Recently visited for a show while staying nearby for business. I found it very easy to find and get to. The facilities were better than other 'older' venues I've been to. The staff were quick to assist and direct me my seat. One thing I would say is avoid driving directly and past the venue, the Police have to intervene... More

It was very big, open and clean. The sound for the concert was great and the people were very friendly and helpful. Like all venues like this, the beer and wine was very overpriced, but it is expected.

The seating is excellent. Almost like sitting in your favorite easy chair at home. Except, the seats here have a place for you beer can. The seats are very comfortable. Every seat is a good seat. There are no blocked views. The sound system is tremendous. The parking is excellent. We parked up near the side door from where we... More

We went to a concert at the SAP Center at San Jose, when it was called the HP Pavilion. HP took their name off the place, not because it was a bad place, but because of they bet on the printer and Pc, and Samsung and Apple bet on the tablet and smart phone. And you know who won that... More

SAP Center Arena in San Jose is perfect for big music events (top notch entertainment). We like to go there to see the National Hockey League San Jose Sharks play there. There are also special events such as we have gone there to see the Ringley Barnum and Bailey Circus. Parking is on site or various parking lots surrounding the... More
