“Premiere concert venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I can no longer count the number of times i have attended concerts and gatherings at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City. More popularly known by its old name, just Araneta Coliseum, this venue has been the dream of all local stars and of course the priority venue when international artists come here, or at least in the last couple of years. Although still considered as much bigger than the other venue in MOA, this landmark has indeed stood the test of time. Im happy that despite the years, mgt has been able to maintain the cleanliness and condition of the coliseum. Easily accessible from all over metro manila, what makes this a better venue is that is connects to the MRT, so you can reach the venue faster avoiding the rush hour traffic. Lots of restaurants on the ground floor and several adjoining malls connect to this landmark. The area is notorious for being a haven of bad elements so be extra careful whenever you visit this place.

“Coveniently accessible entertainment venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I watched a show here and had an easy time getting to the place due to its MRT (light rail)connection. Since I went there on a non-peak time, the commute was OK. Just a bit of caution,never take the MRT during peak hours (or when most commuters are rushing to and from work 6-8am;5-7pm)

“Still the better venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Still the benchmark of popularity for performers.
Good restos the strong point of the Coliseum.
Parking is the main challenge to the venue.
