“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

I attended opening night here last season (13/14) between the Warriors and the Lakers. While the game was quite one sided and basically over at half time, the entertainment and pre game season launch was fantastic. Every seat in the stadium had a free t-shirt and glow stick waiting on arrival. It is quite a way from downtown Oakland so give yourself plenty of time to get there on the train (like we took) or by cab.

“Good Arena for basketball, music, and special events”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Oracle arena in Oakland is a good place to see a basketball game, go to a music concert, or attend the circus such as Ringley Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Parking rates are high here, so recommend if near Bart, take Bart to the coliseum station and walk to the arena.

“Excellent Venue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I attended a Warrior's game in March, and this was my second time to see a game at Oracle. This time I had great seats in the lower section. Very convenient to have a separate concession area. But there are two main reasons for this review: It's a great place to watch a game, and the staff is great! My seats the first time were considerably farther away but compared to Staples Center, for example, at Oracle you seem (or are) closer to the action. The staff are genuinely helpful, and both times I noticed they smiled and were very friendly.

“Bruno Mars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We just saw Bruno Mars and Aloe Blac in concert at the Oracle Arena May 28, 2014.
We really like how easy it was to find parking. The space inside was hugh and we didn't feel overcrowded even though it was a sold out concert.
What I didn't like was when you purchase your tickets, (This is for floor seating only) The seat chart showed one setup and after a few days changed to a different one. I would have picked a different seating area.
All in all I love how there were staff everywhere to answer any concerns you may have. I give this place 4 out of 5 stars.
