The Barclays Center is a great place to see concerts. We saw the Rolling Stones on 12/8/12 and the place was rockin'! The staff was helpful and happy and inviting. The venue is set up well with great sightlines. Bathrooms were clean. Definitely coming back to see more concerts, and probably sporting events too!
Liked: Great venue. Helpful staff.
Disliked: Nothing negative, great venue.
Great aesthetics outside and inside as well.
Liked: Great venue for the event (Sensation!) I attended.

I thought it'd take forever to get into the 9/30/12 Jay-Z show - to my surprise, Brooklyn did it's thing. We moved in fast - all staff was helpful/cordial; the shops were great and the show was off the hook! I'll definitely be back - Jay-Z rocked my daughter's 23rd Birthday. Woop Woop!
Liked: Location; staff; shops; speed.
Disliked: None - everything was awesome!
The Barclays Center is in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn. So the surrounding area is all hustle and bustle with bars restaurants and plenty to do.
If you're spending the day in New York before the game or concert, then you will be spoilt for choice for things to do. Here are a few ideas from us:
Without spending a single dollar, you can enjoy a stroll around Central Park, a really peaceful escape in the heart of one of the world's busiest cities.
No visit to New York is complete without a visit to the world famous Times Square. Get your selfie in this famous square, shop till you drop or grab a bite to eat.
Museum of Modern Art
Globally renowned, the Museum of Modern Art is a must see whether you're a die-hard modern art enthusiast or just a curious visitor.
Literally across the street from the Barclays Center, Shake Shack has more than just shakes. The menu includes burgers, dogs and beer too. This is a great spot for a quick bite before or after your game or concert.
Right next to Barclays Center, Kulushkat has an extensive gluten free menu in additional to its Israeli menu. Think hummus, pita and salads. A great and healthy stop for before the concert.
A quick walk from the Barclays Arena, Cubana Café is a cute little spot to eat. A good breakfast menu and its signature Cuban sandwich are amongst the reasons to check this place out.
Brooklyn has a huge 30 miles of waterfront. And it's a busy place. If Brooklyn were a city in its own right, it would be the 4th most populated in the US.
