Barclays Center, Brooklyn

4.2
An indoor arena for sports and entertainment in the heart of Brooklyn, Barclays Center can host up to 18,000 people for games, concerts, and other events that take place throughout the year. Though the 2009 recession threatened to shut down construction, in 2012 the site opened to the public and hosted its first major event, a Jay Z concert. Home of the National Basketball Association's Brooklyn Nets, the center is now one of the most popular event arenas in the greater New York City area. Check the website for future offerings, or take a guided tour of the arena as part of its twice-daily VIP Access Tour Program. Barclays Center is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Centrally located. Lots of great restaurants and bars around. I would advise taking public transportation if you can. The area gets difficult getting in and of before and after the show. The restrooms were plentiful and clean. Had the pizza there and was surprisingly very good. Staff was very polite. Saw Maiden... awesome.
  • Saw a concert here and I have to say my experience was excellent. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The arena didn't feel as big as it was. Exiting the arena was super quick too, just hopped the 2 line toward Manhattan after the show and there weren't many people at the station.
