“Nice Arena In NOLA”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

I went to see the New Orleans Pelicans basketball game and it was a good experience. The game was mid week and the arena was not overly busy but the tickets are very cheap for excellent seats. The staff at the arena was very nice and the atmosphere was really good - lots of fans cheering and excited to watch the Pelicans. The venue would be good for a concert i am assuming as well. Took a quick cab from the French Quarter which was between $10-15 depending on where you get on/off. Location is good for sports fans as the Superdome is right next to it.

“Easy Acess”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Perfect location- in between the Superdome and the Interstate system. Parked in the Superdome parking lot and walked right across the ramp. One of the easiest arenas to get in and out of. Set up perfect for concerts.

“Our basketball night”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Went to see the Pelican vs Spurs. It was my husbands first NBA game. We watch them on TV all the time so seeing it in person was quite a treat. We stayed in the French Quarter and got a cab to take us to the arena so we would not have to worry about parking. The arena was very nice. Since it was a Monday night it wasn't overly crowed. Our seats were good and not that expensive. It was an enjoyable evening we won't forget.

“Really fun!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We were here Dec. 30th, 2013 for the Blazers- Pelicans game! The place was not overly packed but the experience is something I won't forget! Outside the arena, they had inflatables where kids can play. Also, they had a mini basketball court where teenagers can play. There was a dance team and a live DJ playing awesome music- putting fans in a great mood. Inside the arena..... It is very nice and clean. The beverages and snacks are pretty pricey but they are that way in most arenas. The crowd inside was so awesome, loud and very supportive of their team. The experience was really memorable for me. I say definitely visit New Orleans Arena!

“Basketball Games”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have been to several Hornets/Pelicans games at the arena. They are always fun and most of the time it is a good halftime show. This year the arena has undergone a facelift although, I did not notice much of any difference besides paint. The seating is good, but the food is bland. The staff friendly.
