“Nice Barn!”
Review of Xcel Energy Center

I have attended 2 games at the Xcel Energy Center (including a game in 2009 to see my beloved Ottawa Senators) and I was pleased both times. The arena is very modern with top notch facilities and concessions. The open bowl seating allows for great views of the ice from any seat in the arena. The fans are very knowledgeable about the game of hockey and were respectful to the away fans which made the viewing experience a positive one. The arena is also in a safe area of town and is in walking distance of multiple hotels, bars, and restaurants. If you're a hockey fan then a trip to the Xcel Energy Center is a must!

Your choice of food and beverages but the price is steep ($9 beer anyone?). Great people at the concession stands, Seating is roomy and the views are fine. Easy to get in and out, even with a sellout crowd.

The Xcel Center is one of the most beautiful sporting venues I've been in. It's also a great place for a concert, large but still seems fun and intimate.
