Came in to see the hawks. And they won. We had club seats. This meant a separate guarded entrance. On this level are private restaurants and bars. Nice bathrooms. You pay more. You get more. Very friendly staff. Very service oriented these days. Yes. You will pay 10$ for a taco and $10 for a small cocktail. But if you're... More

We went to see Pink at the arena in December. We had great seats on the floor about 5 rows back from the stage. Pink put on a fabulous concert with great music and a flying show around the arena. She puts a fantastic amount of energy into the performance. The Philips was a great venue to see her concert... More

We saw Kings of Leon here in February and had a great time. It was easy to get to and was set up well. Plenty of places to get food or drinks and the concert was great.

I've been to Philips for a few sporting events and had a great time. There really isn't a bad seat. A concert, however, is a different story. The arena's acoustics isn't great for music and the stage location isn't ideal for all seats. Choose your music genre carefully.

The farther back you sit from the stage the closer the seats get. Very large arena though. Lots of food/drinks, clean bathrooms

Went for a ballgame. The arena was very clean and they seemed to have enough staff on hand to help and answer questions. My only issue was food. Went at half time and waited in a mob of people for food. They were out of most beers, completely out of all food except popcorn and plain pretzels. People were so... More

My expectations were not very high when I decided to take my kids to an Atlanta Hawks game, but I have to admit it was one of the best times I have had at an NBA game. As I make my way to all of the NBA venues, I definitely have to say I had a very positive experience at... More
