    The suite life
    Won tickets to a basketball game here through work - it was great to finally be able to visit the Barclays Center. The suite was awesome – great seating, nice appliances and bathroom too. Would love to go back for a concert in the future.

    Big Arena
    Some people think this big arena sparked the revival of Brooklyn, but I think it started long before. Certainly it brings a lot of people to the Atlantic Yards area for a show, a basketball game, or some food. Puts lots of people on the street. Sometimes there are community events here. Well-served by public transit.

We purchased resale tickets for a very reasonable price for a Brooklyn Nets game. Access was easy from the subway and security was quick. For us Brits looking for an authentic sports experience, this was great, even down to the t shirt cannons!

We went to the Zach Bryan concert and I made reservations for 2 at the Crown Club @ $125.00 per guest for my sons 26th birthday. Foe $125.00I would expect more selectioons Bill $368.78 TIP OF $40.00 total bill 408.78. for burger and pasta + drinks. This meal with drinks was totally over priced by at least $200.00. I WOUILD NOT RECCOMEND!!!

Barclays Center is a GHETTO ARENA!!!! I went to the attend We Them Ones comedy tour and everyone was smoking marijuana in the place. I don’t understand how this is okay and I feel when you pay good money to attend a show or concert you shouldn’t be subjected to people smoking in the place . I didn’t sign up to smell like it or be in a cloud of it. Security is a joke because asking people to put it out does nothing because as soon as they turn their backs they light up again. All over people were smoking marijuana and it made me ill to the point i left after 45 minutes in after moving from my paid seat, only to go higher and encountered the same thing. I’m telling you now if you go to any concert here beware people will be smoking marijuana all around you.

Booked 2 expensive tickets to the basketball, NY Knicks Vs Brooklyn Jets and was hauled from our seats 20 minutes in to the game because apparently our tickets were double booked. The staff member who hauled us off like criminals, had made a mistake. We were made to queue at the box office to 'sort it out' whilst the game was going on and we missed a whole quarter. Spoken to with disdain by the staff even though none of it was our fault and was an error on the center not us. America is supposed to be known for its service culture. It absolutely isn't at the Barclay Center. I would book a game elsewhere for visitors planning on going.

This huge sports and concert complex transformed this neighborhood and probably accelerated the gentrification of central Brooklyn. Certainly spawned a lot of nearby restaurants. Lots of people come here all the time for events. Well served by the subway and the train.

I took my grandson to the Barclay's Center for the NBA Draft on June 22nd. We live in Pennsylvania and drove three hours to Brooklyn for this trip. Our view of the big screen to watch the event was totally blocked by speakers hanging from the ceiling. I have tried to contact Barclay's management both through email and social media and they don't even take the time to reply. I paid $400 for a hotel in Brooklyn and almost $200 for tickets and my grandson was ready to leave after just ten picks. Barclay's really let us down.
