Saw a Nets vs. North Carolina game. It was great, got free glow sticks to cheer them to a win!!! Please take public transportation, very congested, lots of foot traffic.

Messed up my Suite rental agreement. I saved up and spent a lot of money on a 30th birthday surprise. After confirming all details about the VIP meetup lounge/ bar before hand, they closed it without notice to anyone right before doors opened. Ruined the whole first part of the night. The also closed the original 40/40 club included in... More

Don't go here unless you've eaten a full meal!! Food is overpriced. Don't even consider getting a beer or two. It'll set you back at least 20 dollars. So disappointed with this place. Good example of how Brooklyn is now though. Overpriced and being developed for the rich. I'll never bring my family to Barclays again.

This is truly Brooklyn finest. Repaired to get there early because Brooklynn's best restaurants are in there. Enjoy !

I've seen a few Cirque du Soleil shows [Mystere, O, La Nouba, Wintuk]. For the above average ticket prices, one expects to see stunts with increasing degrees of difficulty. Toruk, in my opinion, was a slightly better version of Wintuk, the worst CdS production. Toruk had a confusing introduction. Characters were speaking Klingon while the narrator told the story. Too...

Barclay center is a nice place... we went to see Toruk Cirque du soleil they utilized the whole center stage... it was a nice show!!! parking for this arena was a bit of a pain... make sure you plan ahead to find parking and still get to your show or sports event on time... enjoy!!!

This place is horrible. Service is horrible you buy bottles of water they sell it to you with no cap, open it with dirty hands, and telling you its the rule. What kind of rule is that? Then if you left your sit and went to the bathroom and did not take your ticket with you, tough luck they won't... More

Was my first time inside, it was amazing and beautiful. The arena is an atrium and we had tickets 3 rows from the top, steps were very steep and scary when looking down. Seats were very narrow, food expensive and ticket prices are to high. Otherwise the sights were nice, view even high was very good.

What a waste of my Friday night and yes, i have seen many cirque shows to compare, at least 15 shows seen,this one is so boring to put it bluntly,blank canvas with projectors and the most boring acts, ever. It feels as if you are watching a movie on TV, no point in seeing this live. Was happy there were... More
