Attended a Suns game during my stay in Phoenix. Great arena with some nightlife within walking distance.

A really fun night seeing the Suns vs the La Lakers. A really easy to navigate , large arena. Escalators, and easy parking . We parked at the garage on 3rd and Jefferson. Costs $12 and is literally at the arena. Good view from most spots in the arena... a really fun night out.

This is located in downtown Phoenix a beautiful building, lost of parking space. I little bit price if you have a large family but it will not break the bank. I have been there several times and I always have enjoyed a great view of the show regardless of where I get seated. I have been in the suites too... More

We attended a basketball game. The tickets were only $7 for nosebleed section. The venue was clean. Restrooms looked like you could sit on the floor and eat. We wanted to park close. There was a parking garage that is attached and connected, so you never have to step outside. It is pricey at $20, but well worth it. You... More

The parking is difficult, bring cash because that was the only payment method that was taken. The place was packed for a Tuesday night. We bought $18.75 tickets. The place had great energy. It was unfortunate that the Suns lost to the Timberwolves but it was a great game. There was plenty to see before the game. The seats were... More

We attended a Phoenix Suns NBA game and the whole experience was better than expected . Booked tickets online - a smooth process. Parking was easy and a reasonable price, we were also impressed by the excellent traffic management after the game . There was a great atmosphere and we had a good view despite seats at the upper level.... More

The seating arrangement is unique. If you're seated in the 200 level it is very cold and for some odd reason the lights are off. It's very dark, almost a fire hazard dark. The seats are very steep and close to the ceiling. If someone below you stands up the whole view will be obstructed. The game was fun but... More

We went as a family - booked online - including onsite parking which made life easier. The food options before the game were bewilderingly large in number but a lot of fun to explore. The game itself was exciting - though the frequent pauses to advertise products (at least that seemed to be the main purpose) was a bit odd.... More

Went to the Phoenix Sun vs Miami Heat NBA game, first time at the venue and first pro ball game. Easy to get to by GPS, easy parking across the street. Great views from mid lower bowl seats. Very pleasant staff right from the ticket takers at the door to the ushers. Comfortable seats. Lots of food and beverage options.
