About Barclays Center
Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, opened in September, 2012 with much fanfare. Serving as the home of the NHL's Islanders and the NBA's Brooklyn Nets, the modern, multi-purpose arena features a well-designed, intimate seating configuration. Under the huge, dramatic dome, approximately 19,000 concert-goers can be accommodated for musical performances, and there are approximately 18,000 cushioned seats with unparalleled sightlines to bring sports fans to the front of the action.
During Barclay Center's inaugural season, Brooklyn's own Jay-Z sold out eight shows that included world-class talent such as The Who, Neil Young, Barbra Streisand, Leonard Cohen, Justin Bieber, Bob Dylan, Rihanna, John Legend, Journey, Andrea Bocelli, Rush among other stars.
The Barclays Center arena boasts 101 spacious luxury suites. The most elite of the suites, The Vault, consists of 11 suites inspired by Jay-Z himself. Sports fans can enjoy attending World-Championship Boxing, NHL, NBA and college sports as well as showstoppers like Pearl Jam or Beyonce from the privacy of their own luxury suite.
In addition to four lounge-bars, three clubs and Jay-Z's 40/40 CLUB & Restaurant by American Express, to pick up a beer, glass of wine or cocktail, there are a variety of food concessions offering Nathan's hot dogs, Sicilian-style slices, artisan pickles, tacos, sushi, mac and cheese and BBQ, as well as stadium standbys such as nachos, pretzels and popcorn.
The state-of-the-art facility offers thoughtful touches, such as spacious restrooms, no-fee ATMs, photo booths, and an unnervingly perky Disney-Institute-trained staff. Modern conveniences like cell phone charging stations and free Wi-Fi, a food-ordering mobile app with separate pick-up lines will guarantee that your event at Barclays Center will be a memorable one.
Located opposite the Atlantic Avenue Station, Barclays has limited parking, but is conveniently located for public transportation and is accessible from separate nine subway lines.
