Mary J Blige concert was a smoke fest. Made me sick.
Nov. 2021 • Couples
I feel like it was very very unorganized. It was a free for all. People were everywhere walking and sitting in seats that were not there own. Way way way too much weed being smoked. Took over an hour to get the car out of the parking lot. Terrible experience I will never visit there again.

Big Venue
Oct. 2021
This is an impressive modern arena used for concerts and basketball. It takes up a big block and has inspired on-going urban renewal all around it. Super service from pubic transit.

Wonderful Experience
Jun. 2021
My son and I went to the Brooklyn Nets game and the experience didn't disappoint ! The arena is in walking distance to most hotels and staff and securtity made checking in very easy.
Inside there were a lot of food and beverage selections.
The only knock I would have is very minor, which is the Nets store is very tight inside(especially in trying to distance) and they don't limit the amount of people in the store from what I was able to see.

Overall a great time!

NBA Playoffs!! Nets vs. Celtics
Jun. 2021 • Family
We had a fun time attending the Nets/Celtics NBA playoff game at Barclays. The NYC subway system is easy to navigate so there was no problem getting to the stadium. The ease of the electronic ticketing, the pleasant associates to assist us to our seats, and the extra free drinks and NBA souvenirs all added to the awesome NBA experience. I've attended previous NBA games in various cities. Barclays definitely got two thumbs up from me and each of my peeps.

The One Arena I Actually Hate to Go To
Jul. 2019
This is my least favorite arena. Ushers seating you in the wrong section (2 of 3 concerts), bathroom issues (3 concerts), lousy acoustics (3 concerts), unhelpful staff (2 of 3 concerts), serving cold food at concession (1 of 3 concerts), food service worker sneezing into their hand and then trying to hand me the food--I wouldn't take it. Worker said he covered his face--yeah, and then used that hand to handle my food (1 of 3 concerts). Sightlines depend on where you sit (but that's really the case with any arena). The LIRR station for Barclays is dreadful and has no food available to purchase for the train ride home (it ain't no Penn Station). There are a bunch of restaurants and pubs in the area. Go to them and stuff up before your event and grab a pretzel and drink from a street vendor before heading to your train. Madison Square Garden, Jones Beach, Allentown's PPL Center all are more inviting and positive places to see a concert. MSG places a premium on the fan experience, Barclay's seems to see it as an annoyance. Jones Beach, with its questionable acoustics due to being an outdoor amphitheater, has better acoustics than Barclays. PPL Center has great charm and prioritizes its patrons. Iron Maiden, Tool and Ghost concerts all diminished somewhat because of the venue. And for Islander games? The NHL would have been better off authorizing the local pond as the team's home venue. You can't see the game in this place.

An icon in Brooklyn

The Center itself is impressive, but it is more the area around the center which is interesting and worth a visit. This is where real people live.

Last minute nets game.
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Had a brilliant evening watching the nets.

2 chicken tender meals and 2 drinks 50 dollars a bit steep! But didn’t mind as it was an experience.

Easy to get to- Atlantic Avenue stop

Travelled from UK for this special event. Concert was brilliant. Barclaycard Center is a fantastic venue. We had access to VIP bars which were great. All staff very polite and helpful. Seats very comfortable. Overall a great experience for us.

Attended a conference here and it was really easy to enter and exit. Staff were really helpful and there were some great amenities. Ladies toilets had a bit of a queue but there were a lot
of ladies present. Near to town!

Great concert venue without having to go to NYC
May 2019
We saw 2 concerts there so far and they were great
the seats were regular seats but there was a little more legroom than other venues
the sound system was very good too
you cant beat the location . you come off the long island railroad and walk across the street
only thing a negative is if you are sitting up higher , it is very very steep.
