“Avoid”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Nothing to like about this place. $20 to park. Uncomfortable seats that don't have a good view regardless of where you sit. Terrible acoustics.

“Not really a bad seat in the place”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Allstate Arena is fairly large but overall it has a "small" feeling. I've been to numerous concerts sitting in the upper level and have never felt far away. Yes sitting on the first level is way better, but top level isn't bad at all. I've gone here for concerts, hockey games and other performances. The sound is great. Like any venue, the food is what it is. Not great, but not horrible either. The parking lot is huge, but expect to wait to get out. Easy location to get too.

“Great place to watch a game”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

I took my daughters to a basketball game here on Saturday. Parking was very easy. Frankly, I dont think there is a bad seat in the house. We are going back next month for the NCAA Women's Regional

“Boo!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

There isn't any street parking to be had anywhere near so you are forced to pay to park. Inside the seats are very narrow and small, making it uncomfortable for most adults. Beer prices are ridiculous.

“No Sweet Suites Here”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Hosted clients in a "suite," or for better term," a rotting bar bathroom. This place needs an overhaul in every sense of the word.

The sound is good, the concert experience is OK, but with Chicago being such a top market for entertainment, I was very surprised at the condiditon of the place.

Regular seats are just that. DO NOT WASTE YOUR $ on their suites!
