Overall great sized venue for events. Not to big, not to small. Concessions are pricey but that's to be expected. Only complaint is the clear plexy glass on the first row of the upper section. Very scary when walking by to get to your seat. One wrong move and you could easily fall over.

Coldest place on earth. I felt like I was in commercial freezer. I felt like I had frost bite. Food overpriced 9.00 for three little chicken tenders and fries and it had noooo seasoning. We are in NOLA. Really.

Saw Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood on their last night in New Orleans. Never been to the Smoothie King Center before but it was a great venue, comfy seats, reasonably priced concessions and $15 (cash) parking just next door. FABULOUS show!!!

My family saw Garth Brooks in concert here. I would have given this an "excellent" rating if the entry process hadn't been so bad. We had purchased tickets with a paperless method, but the center had only one door designated and equipped to handle the paperless guests. This caused us to be in line to enter for a VERY long...

I was there on a day that they were doing back to back Garth Brooks concerts. There was a show at 7 and one at 10:30 so I expected crowd management to be a nightmare. I can't speak to the parking since we walked but did see that they have multiple parking lots. The facility was cleaned and they had... More

I attended a Garth Brooks show on 11-July-2015. The Arena is nicely laid out has clean restrooms. The concessions is marginal at best and HIGH PRICED on top of getting ripped off on the price the condiment stand only has Mayo Mustered & Ketchup, No Pickles Jalapenos or Radish! I could have dealt with the food issues what took most... More

easy access, sometimes.the stairs are oddly shaped and the risers are high, so that by the time I go to the top, I was exausted. so if you have a heart condition, are older, or over weight, use what I can only imagine as the slowest elevator. the arena is a bit dated, but good seats all around. Food was... More

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we were harassed by the Arena Security & NOPD. They accused one person we were with of lighting a cig twice & myself once for my e-cig. We did smell the funny smoking stuff all around us though. We all didn't know you couldn't use them. She came back again... More

I don't have a chance to go inside because I am rush to visit many places. So I can see only from outside how huge and amazing of this place. I would love to go back there again to see inside for the concert or other events.

Nice sized venue for UFC, not really a bad seat in the house. The arena and restrooms were clean. The seats were comfortable, sound system was great, and TVs were nice to see close ups of the action going on in the ring. It was a little frustrating that they stopped serving drinks before the main event even started, but... More
