    The suite life
    Won tickets to a basketball game here through work - it was great to finally be able to visit the Barclays Center. The suite was awesome – great seating, nice appliances and bathroom too. Would love to go back for a concert in the future.

    Big Arena
    Some people think this big arena sparked the revival of Brooklyn, but I think it started long before. Certainly it brings a lot of people to the Atlantic Yards area for a show, a basketball game, or some food. Puts lots of people on the street. Sometimes there are community events here. Well-served by public transit.

Booked 2 expensive tickets to the basketball, NY Knicks Vs Brooklyn Jets and was hauled from our seats 20 minutes in to the game because apparently our tickets were double booked. The staff member who hauled us off like criminals, had made a mistake. We were made to queue at the box office to 'sort it out' whilst the game was going on and we missed a whole quarter. Spoken to with disdain by the staff even though none of it was our fault and was an error on the center not us. America is supposed to be known for its service culture. It absolutely isn't at the Barclay Center. I would book a game elsewhere for visitors planning on going.

This huge sports and concert complex transformed this neighborhood and probably accelerated the gentrification of central Brooklyn. Certainly spawned a lot of nearby restaurants. Lots of people come here all the time for events. Well served by the subway and the train.

I took my grandson to the Barclay's Center for the NBA Draft on June 22nd. We live in Pennsylvania and drove three hours to Brooklyn for this trip. Our view of the big screen to watch the event was totally blocked by speakers hanging from the ceiling. I have tried to contact Barclay's management both through email and social media and they don't even take the time to reply. I paid $400 for a hotel in Brooklyn and almost $200 for tickets and my grandson was ready to leave after just ten picks. Barclay's really let us down.

Visited for a Nets basketball game and was very disappointed by the facilities. The main entrance was closed for entry and the side entrance que took such a long time that we missed the first quarter, despite showing up early for the game. Security was slow and staff rude. The space in-front of the seats is so narrow it is very hard to walk to your seat without stepping on other people’s toes, that’s if they even stand up and let you pass - which they did not several times. The bathrooms are far away from the seating. The drink situation is what frustrated me even more. The “Bev Express” charged me $31.57 plus another pending amount of $9.46 for two beer cans 😳 there was no prices and I didn’t expect them to cost me $20 each.

The center is the same, but the area is very changed in the last year. The shops of sports memorabilia are now closed. The mall are reduced.
