At a time when Brooklyn is quickly becoming known as the hottest borough, the Barclays Center is just as rapidly taking its place as Brooklyn’s hottest venue. Stationed at the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues near Downtown Brooklyn and across the street from Atlantic Terminal, the Barclays Center is home to the NBA’s Nets and also plays host to plenty of city, national and international entertainment tours.
This popular venue, which now rivals the popularity of famed Madison Square Garden, opened its doors in 2012 and has won recognition in equal parts because of big name shows and big name rapper Jay-Z. With typical stadium seating, plus 101 luxury suites, four bars, four clubs and plenty of nearby dining options, the Bar Clay’s center has become a destination for locals and travelers looking to sit back, relax and enjoy some truly epic sports, performances and live entertainment.
The Barclays Center is easily accessible using public transportation, with some 11 subways and the Long Island Railroad making stops within walking distance. Hours are dependent upon scheduled events, so check the website for up-to-date details.
