    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.

    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.

    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.

    Check out the new Market to Go stand on the plaza level near section 108 featuring pre-made deli sandwiches, salads, bottled soda, juice, beer, wine, candy, and other snacks!

    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.

    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

    Don't get fooled into purchasing expensive parking prior to attending a game or concert! There is $10 parking on the north side that is extremely close to the entrance.

    Monday-Saturday 11am-11:30pm ride #FREE DART dLink pink shuttle bus every 15 minutes to + from downtown Dallas hotels. Look for route 722 on m.dart.org or the hot pink bus stop Houston @ Olive.

    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.

    The outdoor patio of the Jack Daniel's Old No' 7 club has some world-class people watching before and after games. And cocktails. You're welcome.

    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.

    You'll get free nachos if you go to the middle of the south entrance lobby and yell "I WHIP MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH." while whipping your hair back and forth.

    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.

    Great concert venue. Been to a lot of good shows there. Beer is overpriced though but its a huge venue so what do you expect.

    I catch a Mavs/Stars games here. Can usually find an okay ticket for cheap. I wish the food options were way better though.

    Plantinum club seats are awesome! Can order food & drinks from your seat. So worth the $. This stadium is amazing!

    The food is terrible unless you got money for the connecting restaurants. Save yourself and eat before. You'll need the extra cash for booze.

    If the Stars score in the third period or the Mavs win, then everyone gets a FREE crispy beef taco coupon from Taco Bueno!

    Havana Social Club in the plaza is great for a pre/post game drink and they'll validate your valet parking!

    This is a sick spot to skate. Once in a while you can catch a good contest called D-Town throwdown to see the heavy hitters jump down the stairs.

    Take the TRE light rail to the arena, WAY less stressful that having to deal with parking and it drops you off right in front!

    Skip ticketmaster and buy your tickets at the AAC box office. You'll save lots on the convenience fees and often get better ticket options.

    Food and drink at AAC is outrageously priced!!! $4.50 for a bottle of water?? Are you kidding me?? We were there for a conference and could not believe the prices!

    If you have platinum seats, don't buy alcohol downstairs. TABC won't let you take it up. #smh
