I really enjoyed this area as we went in to eat and burn some time until the football game started. There was a vast variety of food to choose from to eat from breakfast to lunch to dinner! Plenty of shops to walk around and shop if interested and I'm sure some other great things but we were just passing... More

Sound system and entertainment is superb! If I lived here, I'd have season tickets! Beer is small serving and overpriced at $7.50. Hawks do have great family deals.

This arena is home for the Hawks and the game we watched was entertaining and a worthwhile family attraction. The ambience is fun, the timeout and halftime antics make it enjoyable no matter what age or gender. Special upgrades offered through your smartphone allow visitors special seatings and a mascot photo op. Overall: 8.5/10 ( would be higher score if... More

Great arena. Clean. Food and drink prices are on the high side, but it was expected at a NBA game. Walking distance from the Embassy Suites.

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
