Billy Joel

The concert was awesome, but if you are at the upper level and the event is sold out, I would advise sitting and waiting for the crowd to clear. Sound system is great, but there... read more

Went to see a Pelicans game. Sat in section 314. Could see all of the action no problem. Friendliest staff you will ever meet. Fast service. Very very clean facility.

The stadium overall was very clean and a perfect home for the NBA game. Large jumbotron with 4 sides. Mr Benton's club was cool and the floor seats were unbelievably fun!

But for the appalling acoustics I would have rated it higher. Available food was good standard and varied. Comfortable seats easy access/egress but for a concert it's a dead loss. Has to be the poorest sound quality of all the concert venues I have attended.

We went to see Billy Joel here. The seats were comfortable and sound quality good. I went looking for diet Coke and found out they only serve Pepsi in the building and had to go to a separate concession stand for water. After waiting in line forever and watching 10 people stand there but only one to take orders, I... More

The concert was awesome, but if you are at the upper level and the event is sold out, I would advise sitting and waiting for the crowd to clear. Sound system is great, but there should be more screens for the upper levels. Food and drinks extremely pricey. Seats are very comfortable.

Saw the OKC Thunder play the New Orleans Pelicans on a Wednesday night. About 60% filled with fans. The ushers and the rest of the staff that operate this arena were very nice,friendly etc. As far as an NBA experience goes,I liked the entire facility. My seats were in the upper sections,but still close enough to the game action. If... More

We went to a Cirque du Soleil performance at the Smoothie King Center. It was our first time in the arena, and I was very impressed with how nice it was. The venue is kept in very nice shape and the seats were comfortable. Our only complaint is that the concessions were priced stereotypically sky-high!

We were first time visitors to the Smoothie King Arena to watch the Pelicans play the Spurs and the staff was efficient and helpful and the energy in the Arena for a game was first class and kept you engaged. That was one of the best NBA arena experiences I have ever had. Would definitely recommend attending a game if... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
