Flew in from kc for the game. They keep this arena unbelievably cold. Felt like the fan was right on me. They should get this fixed.

I may be biased since we saw an awesome game, but this arena is great. We did a package deal for tickets, 2 free drinks, and a T shirt. Very inexpensive for all of that, and even though our seats were in the highest level, we could see the game very well. Great overall experience from start to finish. Make... More

Great centre, with all round good views, we sat up the back to the left and we could see the entire Pelicans game without straining. The atmosphere blows you away. Had the best time.

Attended the New Orleans Pelicans game against the Golden State Warriors (Pelicans won in the end, great game). Booked tickets through ticketmaster and collected at box office before the game. Unfortunately at no stage was I informed that backpacks were not allowed in the arena, so had to make a roundtrip to my hotel just to get in. Luckily I... More

This was my first visit to the Smoothie King Center. My husband and I were there for the Stevie Wonder concert. I am a 5' 5" plus size woman and I was terrified that the stadium seats would not be large enough in the seat for my rear-end which is where I carry most of my weight. For those of... More

I enjoyed the Smoothie King Center because of the comfortable seats and also because of the food. The food was nice and it has so many selections. I think the only thing I had a real problem with is that.... well my team lost.

My husband and I have season tickets for the NBA team New Orleans Pelicans and we enjoy our seats and the games tremendously. The exceptional thing about the Arena is the service that we receive from the staff, particularly Courtney Gros, who handles our account, the personnel at the Capital One Club are always friendly, courteous and prompt to help...

During our wedding week we decided to see a game, New Orleans Pelicans vs Utah Jazz.The venue is very nice, New Orleans loves their team so it was packed but we still had nice seats. There were so many vendors and so much good food I had to pace myself!
