The Philips Arena is an excellent venue for virtually all sports events and concerts. The seats usually have good views no matter where you sit especially if they put up screens. The sound is good, and you can take MARTA to the venue. Lots of parking in the area.

I've traveled to Atlanta several times for concerts at the Philips. After the first few times I learned to stay at the Omni so I don't have to go outside. The panhandlers in the area are plentiful and aggressive. This last trip, the CNN Center closed before our concert let out, so we did have to walk around outside. I'll... More

Have been to some concerts, hockey games and basketball games here. Modern and well-planned, except could use more rest rooms. Adequate parking is close by. Food in the area is mediocre.

It was modern, clean, lots of food and drinks and an overall great experience. The seats were comfortable and there was no reason to complain.

We attended a concert here. While we walked to see a concert there, there seemed to be plenty of parking in the garages nearby. This arena is quite large, and we ended up using an entrance that was far, far away from our seats. (I'll look into that a little better next time.) I almost felt like I was in... More

Very good venue. Not for the timid if steep steps bother you. Not a bad seat in the house. Once again I offer the caveat that it is quite steep. That's why the view is so good.

I have been to Philips Arena on a few occasions and each occasion had different seating arrangements. I love how they maximize their space and seating so that you can get the most out of your seat no matter where you sit. In the UFC event my husband and I sat pretty far from the Octagon but with the TV's... More

Clean arena with lots of options for dining and drinks. I went to a basketball game and never had to wait in line for restrooms or a long line for drinks

They know how to handle and feed large crowds here. Restrooms and snacks everywhere. This was an easy event to attend.
