    Plenty of parking close to the arena. There's a bar/restaurant on the first level that let's you go outside and return without scanning your ticket. Nice to have a beer and a smoke at the same time.

    It was built not only as the home of the Dallas Stars & the Dallas Mavericks, but also for other entertainment. Special features include retractable seating and more than $3 million in public art.

    Arena resembles an old train station. Eat at nearby Victory Tavern. Lots to do in the AT&T Plaza before the game. If you need help deciding which Seats to purchase for your next Stars game, check out Read more

    At Stars games, the US & Canadian national anthems are performed by the beautiful and talented Celena Rae. Stars fans have a tradition during the singing of the US anthem that no other team can have.

    Orange parking is worth the price. It is easier to park. When you exit the lot, the police officers stop the oncoming traffic and pedestrians to allow you to exit quickly.

    The Lost and Found is open 24 hours a day. Call them and you can pick it up on the West side entrance near the fan shop, at the employees entrance.

    I'll come here to watch hockey but sometimes I get distracted and end up just using the very nice restrooms- there's lots of them. Then there's day when I get here and the pace is locked up.

    Best hockey seats are not where you'd think. Try the North goal. Watch the Stars attack directly at you 2 of 3 periods. Cheaper tickets too.

    Good venue... But of course beer & food are way over priced. Also, if you're a smoker, you can only take your drink with you outside on the platinum level. Otherwise, you have to go out the front.
