No real sit down places, but the food is pretty good overall. You have to get out your wallet though, especially if you have a full family.

New arena is Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento. This venue hosted the Sacramento Kings for several yeats, but was considered outdated for today's NBA standards.

Not convenient in Sacramento. I took a cab to a concert here. I had difficulty trying to find a pay phone to call it to pick me up after. I was staying at the Hawthorne. Located along the freeway. Older basketball arena with wooden floors. Enjoyed my concert though.

Took a trip to see the Kings play The Heat with friends. What a special day, although like many US sports, the game does tend to get dragged out. The arena is huge, easy to get to and parking close by in Old Sacramento. My advice is to book parking online to save yourself money. We actually booked it online... More

Arco Arena is now a dead dog, replaced by the ungodly expensive Golden One Center downtown. Attention TA: please remove from your listings

What ever you do, don't ever go see a concert here. This place echos like nothing you've ever heard. It wasn't properly built for anything but Basketball.. And even those guys moved out! Bass flaps around the walls and doubles up all over the place. I suggest that they just shut this place down, or maybe turn it into an... More

Nice art all around the inside.. Nice planters outside all along the walls, good touch. Food was good, nice variety $14. Leaving the arena could make you queasy if you are claustrophobic leave early, or wait the crowd out. Otherwise, you will be moving body to body to the escalator a bit strange.
