Chesapeake Energy Arena - Oklahoma City, OK

When the Chesapeake Energy Arena opened in 2002 as a hockey arena, it was home to the now-defunct Oklahoma City Blazers. After Hurricane Katrina, the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets played two seasons there while their hometown field was being repaired. This played a significant role in the creation of the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team, which has called the venue home since it got its start in 2008.

When the Thunder isn’t playing, the venue hosts events like boxing, WWE, MMA, arena football and concerts. Notable past performances include Garth Brooks, Lady Gaga and Paul McCartney.

The venue’s capacity ranges from just over 15,000 for hockey games to over 18,000 for basketball. Private and party suites, clubs and lounges are all available at a premium. There are three restaurants within the arena, and concession stands are located throughout the concourses. Outside food and beverages, selfie sticks, laptops and noisemakers are prohibited. The venue discourages the use of strollers, but they can be checked at Guest Services.

The arena is located in downtown Oklahoma City just a few blocks west from the junction of Interstates 235, 35 and 40. Several popular bars and restaurants are within walking distance along with attractions like the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. There’s some parking at the arena, but it tends to fill up quickly. Plenty of other lots and garages are close by. For those not driving, the arena is accessible from the Oklahoma City Station on the Amtrak network.
