When we heard Ringling Bros was closing, we realized that we haven't ever taken the kids to see the circus. Heck, we haven't even seen it ourselves. So it was road trip time and Atlanta was the closest show to Houston. Luckily we found some cheap airfare so we flew in and out to see the show. It was totally... More

My husband and I went to see the Ringling Brother's circus yesterday at Phillips Arena. This was my first time at Phillips Arena and found it very nice and clean, including the bathrooms. The seats were a bit small, but I don't really think there would be a bad seat in the house. We were in section 211, row E,... More

We went to Philips Arena for the Ringling Brothers Circus today. Every employee that we came across was so polite and friendly. The bathrooms were very clean and it was a great experience from parking the car to watching the circus. Thank you Philips Arena for a great day.

We went to The Ringling Bro. And Barnum & Bailey Circus. It was FABULOUS!! We are so sad that they are ending at the end of this season. :( The arena was extremely clean especially the bathrooms. The staff that we interacted with were helpful and funny. I look forward to going to another event there.

We went to see AC/DC in October, and Stevie Nicks in November. For AC/DC we had seats on the floor. For Stevie Nicks, we had seats just barely up from the floor, just high enough to look over the heads of those seated on the floor. The seating on the floor is uncomfortable, movable folding chairs that are close together.... More

I loved this arena. I managed to park in a lot that was close to the underground MARTA station and it wasn't expensive ($5) and was a really easy walk to the building. Rode up the escalator and there I was. Good food choices and a very modern venue.

Went there to watch a Hawks game. A very good venue, with great views from everywhere, easy to get to and off. A great day out to watch NBA.
