This is great venue for all occasions and living in Dallas makes it more fun by walking to all events. This is one of the best in the country and I lived in Philly and NYC.

I've been to this venue for several events. Concerts, hockey games, even a Marvel Experience! This place is in a trendy area of Dallas, super easy to get to. There is a lot of parking available also.

My Son and I were in town to search for apartments for his upcoming transfer. We noticed the Stars were in town for game against Red Wings and got tickets. The Center had a great Blues band playing out front and the staff in all area could not have been nicer. A great experience.

we went to the Bob Seger concert. The parking was easy, but $20. The seats were great! The music was magical! A perfect evening, except that the guy behind me must have thought I had come to hear him sing. He sang loudly and badly in my right ear the entire evening. Oh well, I guess perfection is over-rated.

good food, great environment, and lots of ushers. Plus many information people moving around offering directions and other information. Plenty of parking nearby.

sat in section 331 (twelve rows from top) for Dallas Stars hockey game. Very modern facility. Lots of contests and giveaways. LOUD---we were at speaker level and I repeat it was LOUD! Concession prices about what all arenas are. Clean throughout. Escalator service to upper levels handled the crowds. Very impressive facility. I will sit lower next time.

I've been here a couple of times. Once for a European traveling horse show and once for a Dallas Stars Hockey game. The center is well kept, modern, clean, and serves good food. It can easily accommodate different types of venues. There is adequate parking for the functions and it is close to the building. The only downside for me... More

Very nice arena. All the seating was comfortable. Easy to see the stage. Good atmosphere. Friendly people. All areas seemed to flow smoothly. Good access.

The AA Center is a nice modern arena. It has plenty of restrooms, and concession stands. It's easy to get to on public transportation. The lower bowl seats are fine. The mezzanine club seats are really nice. I'm not crazy about the upper level seats. They have much less leg room and are a little narrow for my taste.

AA Center is good for Circus events and smaller shows. It's not very good on acoustics and seating in the upper section is not great for concerts nor sporting events. Don't have much choice for Mavs or Stars, but for other events there are better venues in town.
