Great venue, but poor junk food and poor beer. Good seating but no great atmosphere. I compared it to other places I had been watching basketball and the building is fantastic and modern but zero atmosphere compared to places like the Garden in Boston or best, but a long time ago, the Key arena in Seattle

We watched the first ice hockey match of the season at the Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Centre. The seats are quite steep but you can see everything really clearly from every angle. Acoustics were great. Food and drink as you would expect, expensive. All the door staff very friendly. A really enjoyable experience.

Have been to several venues but usually steer clear from NY because taking the train to Madison Square Garden is sometimes a pain in the neck, and driving in New York City is often times a nightmare. But i figured i'd give seeing a show in brooklyn a shot...not the actual city, so maybe a bit easier...i was right. And although there is a subway stop that drops you right in front of the venue, we decided to prepay for parking in a nearby valet lot....$15 and a 10 minute walk. Not bad. There were several parking lots surrounding the theater so it made driving there a tad less of a nightmare. Once inside the theater i immediately noticed how friendly all the staff was...ticket takers, ushers, even concession staff, were incredibly friendly. The sound in the actual theater was AWESOME...and i think thats very important. And the seats were very comfortable which is a miracle nowadays in venues. I would definitely go to another show at this theater.

The Nets have been bad this year, but their ineptness detracts little from the Barclay's Center. It is beautiful, comfortable, and has great sight lines and fine food and drink choices. It is easily accessible by subway, cab or livery(the livery cars line up outside the main entrance after the games).
