Just went to see Frozen on Ice - by Disney at Philips. Great venue --- kids loved it. Like most places - the food prices are a bit high - but not as bad as sports venues. Seating was awesome - nice views. Thanks!

First, they had thousands of people in lines at all doors, which they didn't open until 7:30 for some reason. Ridiculous! The place is in the middle of the city so to see a show and go would be a pain in the a--. We usually stay overnight for Atlanta shows and we did this time. The arena is setup... More

Marta stops at Philips arena. If you want to be close to the ring the best seats for WWE are in Sections 2 and 4 on the floor.

We all know traveling downtown Atlanta a person needs to have patience. The location and everyone from traffic cops to vendors we very nice. The show was great and the process to get in with security was the usual and getting out was much better than it has in the past. I enjoyed going to the arena with my daughter... More

The Philips Arena employee was extremely rude. I told him i could not climb stairs due to being a disabled veteran (i didnt want to... More

This is a large arena with good views from almost all angles. They do seem to try to keep it very clean; there were three consecutive shows the day we went, and lots of workers were hurriedly cleaning as we left the arena between shows. The seating is very tight - I'd estimate the seats are no more than 15... More

Was here for Garth Brooks concert! Very large arena. Plenty of choices for eats and drinks. Clean and multiple restrooms throughout. Sat in section 313, great view of stage. Steps are short and steep but not too bad. Parking was pretty good considering there was another concert going on at Centennial Park. Local PD was helpful with directing traffic before... More
