My husband and I have season tickets for the Carolina Hurricanes. We were in Chicago for fun, so we decided to see a Blackhawks game! The area is amazing! Very impressive! We were 300 level and it didn't feel like it. I felt like that level was just as nice as the others! The food vendors we ate from were... More

While the game I went to see at United Center was a Chicago Blackhawks game in the NHL, I couldn't help but feel like it was the stadium where Michael Jordan made a name for himself! To see all of the Chicago Bulls division, conference and champions titles hanging from the rafters was quite a spectacle I must say. While... More

We really looked forward to attending this event, I paid for the tickets in advance and called the venue to find out about parking since I am disabled and haven't been to the new stadium. I spoke to a woman who told me that the handicapped parking lot was located between Madison and that it would be $24.00 and I... More

Nice venue to take in a game. There are lots of choices for food and lots of spots to buy merchandise. All of it is overpriced. I thought the hotdog for $6.25 would be large but it was just a typical sized hotdog. Also, Chicago has lots of stores selling merchandise at much lower prices than the marked up prices... More

This is the second visit to the United Center for a Blackhawks game. The food is excellent and super friendly service too. Hard to aging a better place to watch hockey. Love the passion and looking at the banners hanging from the curling reminds you of the championships won in the building.

I took in a boring preseason game but I enjoyed the venue. A lot of championship banners in that place from the Bulls and Blackhawks. It would have been nice to have a designated area to go to for taxi's instead of having to walk the 8 blocks I did to find one!

We sent to the Bulls v. Celtics game. It was awesome!! The layout of arena is great. It's big and seats go real high up. The game had to be one of the best games I've ever been to. The Bulls know how to put on a show. Worth every single penny we paid. We are Celtics fans and we... More

Went to the Hawks v Caps game Nov. 7th. Great place to watch a hockey game. National Anthem is beyond words, and live hockey with terrific fans can't be beat.
