My cousin played here for States. Good venue. Great seating. Just wish they had the escalators working. I'm on oxygen and made it hard to walk up very steep steps.

I attended a concert in September and found it to be an awful facility. To start with, the line to get into the place was unacceptable. Everyone who enters has to pass through a medal detector and this line does not move. I have been to concerts all across the nation and this was by far the slowest entrance procedure... More

I was at the civic center for a Rodney Carrington show. This venue provides great seating to everyone! While in the area you must find other attractions as well. Charleston is an undiscovered gem.

I have attended concerts, NBA exhibition games, the WVIAC tournament and other events in this arena and not once did I ever have a bad seat. It is located very close to many fine restaurants for convenience also.

We were one of the fortunate couples to "win" tickets to the show. We drove almost 400 miles to get there. What an experience. AR very well organized. Hundreds of volunteers to make sure you're headed in the right direction. Easily accessible.

Enjoyed AR at the civic center; however, did not like being exited out the back of the facility. The area was unattractive with no sidewalk, and looked like a cargo loading/ unloading area.

The positive side of this facility is that the staff throughout the four day conference I attended were exceptionally kind, helpful, and efficient. The facility itself seems to be quite old, and some of the more modern "bells and whistles" that one might expect at a convention center weren't there. The wifi, while free for conference attendees, seemed expensive if... More
