    Well run downtown arena
    We visited Bridgestone arena for the first time recently while attending a concert and we were impressed. The arena is well laid out with lots of restrooms and concessions. The concourse is large so moving around is a breeze. The sound and site lines are excellent and the staff and security were competent and efficient. The arena and the area around it are clean and seemed safe as well. A we’ll run downtown arena.

    Awesome
    Went to Queen with Adam Lambert. Sound system is amazing. Concert was awesome. My complaint with the arena were the prices first. 2 beers 1 drink 62.00. Seriously? Then the seats. Then only have about a foot of walkway in the aisles so anything over the 1st section you are unable to stand at all. Seats were tight so neighboring people were pouring over into my seat. Not good. But wouldn't have missed it for anything. Just know what your working with. Who doesn't want to dance at a concert.

    Decent barn to watch a hockey game
    We visited Bridgestone Arena as part of my quest to visit all NHL arenas. Located right next to broadway street with a ton of country bars and happenings, it’s right next to all the action. From the outside it’s very unassuming and king of just looks like one giant parking garage. Speaking of parking garages, I parked at the Hilton Nashville downtown garage, and it was a nice short walk to the arena and wasn’t too badly priced. We sat in the higher sections for the game, and although the view was great, the seats are definitely not big/tall person friendly. Very tight. As far as concessions go, we got the loaded grilled cheese sandwich that we were quite pleased with, as well as the all you care to have popcorn Zamboni for $35. Both a decent value. Please note, however, that the flavored alcoholic mixers they have at the one isolated stand down by the concourse is absolutely disgusting. They need to stop selling those. Before the game we had gotten notice that one of the players, Ryan McDonagh, was supposed to be signing autographs for kids down by the media booth that they have. So this man selling stuff in the booth was telling us to get ready by getting pucks for them to sign creating all kinds of hype about it. Unfortunately for predators fans and kids that had this man’s jersey, he denied all the fans any autograph because he was sour about getting their butts kicked. It’s a shame too because some of the kids were even crying about it. No swear though, as I went over to the color commentary and had Hal Gill sign my puck who is a much better human than Ryan McDonagh. Do better!

    Awesome arena
    Amazing arena to watch a hockey game and the food is awesome for a venue like this. Yes, your going to pay premium prices for food and drinks and it is what it is these days. I highly recommend catching a Preds game here.

    Excellent large venue, lots of food choices too!
    Perfect venue for the SEC Men’s basketball tournament. The staff was helpful and the corporate lounges had beautiful, delicious buffets. The seats in the colesium were comfortable and good view from anywhere in the house. Definitely would attend another event here!

    Great seats!!
    We were in Nashville for the weekend for my sister in law's 40th birthday. We decided last minute to go to the Predators game at the Bridgestone Arena. We were one row down for the last row at the tippie top. But we could see so well. There is truly not a bad seat in the entire arena. We had so much fun! We will go back to another game next time we are in Nashville!

The view was great from our seats. Maybe I shouldn't complain because if I were a smaller person, then it wouldn't have been as bad. However, my friend is a smaller person and even to her the seats were wayyy too small and cramped. The arm rest isn't retractable either, which made it worse. We were in section 332, row T. Thankfully at the top so no one was behind us and we could stand. I felt bad for seats in front of us
There was ZERO leg room. Anyway, enjoyed the concert despite having to stand or sit on armrest all night, but dang for 170ish for a ticket in nosebleed section...ridiculous.

This place needs new seating arrangements! The layout is terrible and the seating is too tights. Not enough walking space in between seats. Totally not worth the money for any event.

For true NHL fans/spectators do NOT attend a predator's game. Thebfans are childish, the atmosphere is circus like and the entire ice staff appear to be completely disorganized. I have attended hundreds of games at many arenas and the Bridgestone arena and predator fans are the worst i have ever encountered. The fans do not know or understand the game of hockey. the fans want nothing but to be idiots, loud mouthed morons that only spectate to see fights and humiliate the opposition. Na true hockey environment may have rivals but are still sportsmanlike in their support for the game and team. Not a single person in the area (in was seated amongst season ticket holders) understood anything about the game other than to act like complete adolescents and college frat boys. Absolutely never again and i will do everything in my powers to broadcast the childish antics and unsportsmanlike behavior to as many people as I can. If Nashville isn't going to do anything about it maybe losing tickets and revenue will get them to take notice! Whatever you do, do not attend the Bridgestone arena besides the unsportsmanlike fan base, the seats are only 14" wide and uncomfortable to sit in. Spend your money at a sports bar and enjoy the game on TV!
