“Had a blast seeing Taylor Swift!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went to see Taylor Swift in concert, this was my first concert at this venue. Finding our seats was easy, clear signs pointing the way. Very organized and friendly people to help. Booths to buy souvenir's were everywhere but not a good setup lining people. It was a mob scene at every one with few people to help and no clear lines. Had to push our way to the counter and then grab someone to take our order. They could have had ropes or lines in place to alleviate this. Seating was comfortable and spacious although a bit dirty. The concert itself was great but the sound system wasn't up to par. Sounded "tin-y". That's too bad because I didn't feel I could hear how she really sounds. I would see a concert here again, though.

“Great Venue”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Great place to watch a concert. However, food and drinks are ridiculously over priced!!! The bars and restaurants outside is a great place to start!

“Good arena”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Arena is very nice, food is good and the parking is pretty good as well. A lot of food choices inside and out and the seats all have a good view of the Hockey. Nice job NHL now go get an owner for this team!

“Great venue for hockey”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a very new, modern and comfortable arena. One of the more enjoyable I have experienced. Book a room next door at the Renaissance Center and don't look back.
