Audio bad...seats expensive...no view unless you like to feel like an ant. I will never go to another concert at the venue. This was the first and last visit.

I love a great concert, not so much when I have to deal with traffic to get downtown but the arena is a nice spot. I have been here several times and enjoy my experiences. Food here is quite expensive as well but eat before you go.

We had a great time at Philips Arena. The signage and ushers helped us get to our seats with no problem. The concession stands were well staffed and had a variety of menus. The atmosphere was great and the boys were hyped. All in all we had a good time. There was a long line at the entrance; and it... More

Easy access in and out. I was there for a concert and there was not a bad seat in the house. Wide variety of drinks and food are served. Excellent well designed modern arena.

I like this venue A LOT. So much that I will travel just to make an event at Atlanta's Philips Arena especially Birthday Bash. Birthday Bash 19 back in June was my most recent event here. I had great seats which could be considered just as good as the first five rows of the floor. I was in section 116... More

Was there for the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards, great show by the way. Holds lots of people but, THOSE LITTLE BITTY TV SCENES, SERIOUSLY!! It's 2014! Not a venue for heels. Even with comfortable shoes, the steps to get to your seats are hard to walk even for someone that exercises on a regular basis. Be ready to walk. Seats... More

The Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards chose an excellent facility for their event. From the moment I entered, the staff was cordial. They never hesitated to ask me if I needed any assistance with locating where I wanted to be. The employees, who worn jackets and ties, (even the women) were easy to locate. Smiles and pleasant attitudes were a plus... More

Hawks won 98 to 85 in my first NBA playoff game A really exciting game, full of fans and chants, the cheering never stopped, watching a live game, no matter the team, high flying dunks, blocks and dribbling, just got me excited. Of course supporting the local team, but I was hoping I could see Gustavo Ayon on the bench... More
