Went to a concert here recently and enjoyed the full experience. Parking was reasonably priced and plentiful. There are a lot of places to eat right outside the venue so in the future we would skip the food inside because it’s not that great and...More

Attended a Coyote game with a friend and had a great time. Easy to get to, affordable parking that was close to the venue. Multiple options for dinner before just outside the building. Friendly staff helped us to our seats. Fun night, glad I went.

This is a very nice hockey stadium. It is well maintained and has pretty good food. If anyone is coming to Phoenix, I would recommend to stop by for a coyotes game, you won't regret it!

You can get tickets off of stubhub. Arena was pretty empty when I went so you should have no issue getting tickets with the way they are playing ;)
