Barclays Center - Brooklyn, NY

Situated in the heart of Brooklyn, Barclays Center is an ultramodern venue that provides a surprisingly intimate experience to fans. The arena opened its doors in September 2012 for eight sold-out Jay-Z concerts, but it was actually designed primarily with basketball in mind. The space can pack in nearly 18,000 fans for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets games. Several other basketball competitions and events regularly take place there, including the 2017 men’s college basketball Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

While both the NHL’s Islanders and the Nets play at Barclays Center, it’s still used often by musical acts. Hundreds of popular artists, including Beyoncé and Stevie Wonder, have drawn massive crowds since the venue opened. For stage performances, the center can hold 19,000 fans. It’s also hosted boxing and UFC matches, wrestling series, the NBA draft and the MTV Music Awards.

Attending an event at Barclays Center means a night in one of Brooklyn’s most diverse neighborhoods, Prospect Heights. The venue is surrounded by a myriad of restaurants, cafes and bars, and it’s easily accessible via the New York City Subway system, along with several buses. There’s not much parking nearby—fans are better off taking public transportation or walking. For those planning to eat at the game, there’s a huge selection of concessions throughout the center, ranging from gourmet hot dogs and taco stands to upscale sports bars.

Visitors must pass security before entering. Items like cameras with external flashes or detachable lenses, outside food and drink, laser pointers, fireworks and selfie sticks are prohibited.
