  • I love the Smoothie King Center. It is the best sound of all the venues I have been to. We have been to multiple concerts at this location.  more »
  • Pelicans vs Heat - exciting game to the very end! Variety of food/drink available. Transportation readily available after the game.  more »

  • I saw Twenty One Pilots at the arena and it was amazing. It was just big enough to hold a lot of people and it was small enough that the acoustics for the building were perfect. We could hear the band clearly and it was an amazing performance from beginning to end. Seats were comfortable and the place was fairly clean as far as a location in New Orleans goes.
  • Micheal Buble' was in concert here last night. It was WONDERFUL! The sound quality and light show were great! The Smoothie King staff were super nice and the seats were comfy! They only allow clear purses. I found it best to put my cash and phone in my pocket and leave the rest behind.
