Great venue with comfortable seats, plenty of food and drink options, and nice restrooms. There is plenty of parking close by and it is close to Bricktown!

This is a well designed facility, as usual, they tried to get a few too many seats in the building, little tight for full grown folks, the view is really good at all levels, and when you go outside the arena up stairs, the bar area's are great.

This arena hosts concerts as well as the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball home games. Lots of activities outside the arena to do before the game and security is on hand. This arena is large. We sat in the Loud City section. This was a little too steep for my personal comfort zone. The way the seats are arranged in the... More

We attended the James Taylor concert at the 'Peake - have always enjoyed the atmosphere while attending the Thunder games so wondered how it would be for a concert venue. It was excellent. We waited to get tickets so ended up with what we thought would be bad seats but they were not. The view and the sound were both... More

The arena was touted as a substantial improvement over the outdated Cox Convention Center. It has consistently underperformed. While acceptable for basketball, the arena is quite inappropriate for concerts as the sound system is among the worst while seating is more cramped and confined than the economy class seats of U.S. air carriers.

As nice as any NBA arena in the US. Tons of food options, great acoustics and clean and safe and they are constantly making it better.

I was there for the 2014 NCAA Wrestling Championships. It is a nice arena but somewhat small compared to others that have hosted. The Suites were excellent but the upper level seating was very narrow and steep. The food was typical arena food, pricey but got the job done.
