I am a European. Well worth catching a Hawks game in the Philips Arena. Takes over 2-3 hours and features lots of other entertainments and distractions during the stops in the game (of which there are many). Unique "American" experience and well worth it. Plenty of concessions and shopping as well. Can buy tickets online.

This show was off the chain and the best part of it was meeting Bruce bruce with my husband. Henry Welch was great, Adele Givens was off the rocker she was great and Earthquake was great and oh boy Mike Epps was off the chain.

Festival of Laughs Comedy Show! OMG we had the best of fun and laughs and we were so pleased with out seating location but as it turns out they have added a big screen for viewing which means there is really not a bad place in the Arena at all. Sound was great. Overall great experience and night out. Only... More

I have been to many sporting events all over the US - I should rather add all over the planet. Philips Arena gives you the "so to say typical US sports experience". You will find tons of food, drinks and merchandizing, the whole thing is perfectly organized and all time-outs are filled with entertainment - that is kind of the... More

Atlanta Hawks win their 60th game, a franchise record, vs. Charlotte. EZ access, arena is walking distance to a plethora of hotels, no trouble finding on close by.

As a tourist, I had a lot of fun seeing a Hawks game at Philips Arena. My ticket was only $9, in spite of the Hawks facing another playoff team. Food inside was okay and my seat was great. Definitely an awesome way to spend an evening in Atlanta! Go Hawks!

My family and I attended the Nets vs. Hawks game last Saturday and it was a blast. It was the first Hawks game we have ever attended and we will definitely be returning. There was a broad area of cuisines to eat and drink. So get ready to soar with your Atlanta Hawks!
