We saw a Cirque du Soleil show here. The inside is plain with cramped seating. Could have been cooler too. Expensive of course. We paid $12 for paved parking lot ahead of time just to find out that we could have paid $5 in the dirt parking lot which was actually closer to the venue.

Thisnwill ne a review of the venue as well as the performance. Venue: 3/5 The baby was pretty well capt compared to the rest of Corpus Christi. They offered valet parking for $20 & lot event parking for $10. This is great seeing as how Cirque parking usually costs much more than that. The bathrooms were clean. It is right... More

We came for a Chicago band concert. Beautiful auditorium, comfortable seating with arm rests. Lots of parking, if you get there early. The Big Problem? When you sell beer, you need lots of restrooms. There were several thousand people at the great Chicago concert, and they had a bar, with huge beers being sold. Only one men's room with 6... More

The center is huge and great for major events however if you have to stay more than an hour, its very unconfortable seating. the seats are hard and will make your bottom sqauare. Other than that, it is a great place for events.

They opened the doors when they said they would. They got everyone in quickly while still screening well. The egress after the event was the quickest I've ever experienced.

As meeting places go this one is on a par with most big meeting places. Being in Corpus on the coast gives it an edge. You can get out of the place and see some of Texas' best stuff.

We went here to see the local hockey team play and it was awesome. The center is clean, roomy, and a great bargain. We will be back.

Located at the end of N. Shoreline Blvd., a short walk from hotels and restaurants, this center’s ocean-side views are hard to beat. I visited it for a conference. Escalators and elevators as well as stairways connected the two floors. The center had extensive exhibit halls, meeting rooms, banquet rooms, and ballrooms – all seemed a bit dated yet quite...

We were in town, mostly, to attend a basketball game between the Lady Rockets of the University of Toledo and the Lady Islanders of Texas A&M at Corpus Christi. The American Bank Convention Center is ideally located, right on the waterfront, great view of the Lexington, all museums, Whataburger field a block or 2 away. Nicely landscaped, lots of parking,...
