We have attended several events here. Main floor seating and routine seating is wonderful; acoustics are great and lay out of the building is impressive. It's easy to find concessions and bathrooms. The problem in design is the higher levels, in which the seats feel as if they are pitching forward. We went with friends and some left after very... More

A beautifully maintained arena for sports. Comfortable seating, reasonably good food. And dont forget to check out the Dave Chiluly glass sculpture hanging above section 104 doors.

I have been to many Kohl Center events, Cher, Rod Stewart, Badgers Basketball, but my favorite is the UW Band concert in the spring. The Kohl center is a wide open, nice place for every event.

My daughter attended a Badger basketball camp at Kohl Center. What a fun day for the girls! The facility is beautiful. Clean, bright, nice courts. What a thrill for them to play on the big floor. I love the Chihuly glass in the entryway. Very nice stadium!

I love watching hockey here! It's perfect - cheap local parking, spacious, well-maintained, and plenty of clean bathrooms. You can always get food and drinks when you want to, and there's an awesome on-site store. What more could you want???

Great place for UW Basketball games. Lots of restrooms and concessions. Recommended. Don't park close, but ride the bus, it's easier on everyone.

I disliked the way the door staff behavior was at both events. they were very rude for no reason at all to the attendees for the graduation ceremony. During entry for the game, they were dismissing people w/ valid tickets. Leaving gaping holes in the seats, like the team hadn't any fans.

UW basketball and hockey teams play here. It's a good-sized college stadium, and prices are moderate. One note: Each seat space is on the smallish side, especially considering the plus-sized rear of the average citizen. You'll sit literally cheek to cheek, elbow to elbow while watching a game or a band concert. **Be sure to look for the beautiful Dale... More

Would you believe we weren't there for a basketball game? We vastly enjoyed the VARSITY BAND CONCERT! 250 Marching Band members showing off their musical talents! What a show!! If you haven't ever experienced this you really need to put it on your to do list.
