We took Uber from the Ritz Carlton and were dropped off close to the lines. Inside it's easy to navigate. Nice sitting areas in the food and drink area too. At the concert the seats were comfortable.

Went to see a Pelicans game. Sat in section 314. Could see all of the action no problem. Friendliest staff you will ever meet. Fast service. Very very clean facility.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

To tell the truth I am not sure about the line of sight of the front row but the 2nd or 3rd rows would be safer and the view is pretty much the same. Just my opinion mind you.
