All seats are decent and it is a great place for watching concerts or sports. There is a wide variety of food and beverages, however those are a bit pricey.

The sight-lines and atmosphere are top notch. Fans at the game were very supportive of their team, though I was rooting for the opposition. Seats were comfortable and access to and from was very simple. The immediate area is nice, but walk a few blocks and it's pretty sketchy. $5US for a bottle of water is ridiculous, bu everything else... More

I have been here for hockey games, concerts, and conventions. I have sat on every level. My favorite is the 200 level, as there is more room in your seat. And the boxes are the BEST!

Came here back in April 2011 to watch a Stanley Cup Playoff game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers. Philadelphia won the game and eventually the series. At the time, the arena was also called the HSBC Arena. Nevertheless, I still had a good time and enjoyed the game...except for one of the guys who was scanning my... More

Came out for the UFC fights, had some good drinks, awesome nachos and lots of fun! Not a bad seat in the house, view is pretty good from any angle. Parking is a little tricky tho if you're not familiar with the system there. Plenty of local bars. Great location. Beautiful scenery and AMAZING wine trail just about 45mins out.

Comfortable seating, awesome flexibility from hockey to transiverian orchestra, wwe, UFC, etc. Concessions are expensive at all events, but I can say at least here you forget how much you paid a few bites in because everything is so good and fresh and tasty. I'm glad this venue is available so close to home.
