I haven't been to an event there in several years. This is an aging venue that is holding up. Good for basketball, much better food, updated scoreboard with good video. Unfortunatelyn the basketball team is not good this year.

Was there for opening event at Coors. What the typical fan sees has not really changed since then. Yes, they now have practice facilities for men's and women's basketball and volleyball. However, the ancient elevator, ancient public bathrooms in arena are original to the building...More

Agree with the previous reviewer that the naming rights issue is (and was at the time of the initial act) embarrassing. This place isn't just for basketball. That part "event" they got right. This place can also host meetings, etc. It's neither perfect nor terrible...More

As a CU alumni, I am still disappointed that they would name a college building after a beer brand. And we wonder why CU has a reputation as a party school? I can only hope we have a more appropriate name some day in the...More

Had a really good opportunity to see the complex and attend the graduation ceremonies with a good view - easy in and out even though there were a lot of people.

Who would have thought that Colorado would a great place for college basketball? Both men's and women's University of Colorado teams are talented, competitive, and responsive to the electric atmosphere. Exciting place to watch Division 1 basketball.

There is handicapped parking on the street in front of Coors. Get there early as it fills up quickly. If it is full, you can drop them off and enter on the street level. There is an elevator in the building.
