    For all the ladies carrying hand bags there is a size restriction, all oversized bags are not permitted inside the stadium. Make sure you carry a small purse or clutch.

    Everything in the place, just like the Superdome is owned by Benson and since the old gentleman is from NOLA he has good taste in food!

    Although the stairs are far too steep for older patrons, this was the perfect venue for Cirque du Soleil offering amazing views for everyone! The food and bathroom locations were top notch as well!

    Shoot for lower level tickets. Smoothie King Center offers some of the cheapest tickets in the NBA. Sat in a cushioned club seat for any $35 to see Rockets.

    Great arena with a nice team store, wide open walkways, and numerous good places to eat. Worst acoustics ever for attending concerts though, do not recommend that here

    If you bring a regular purse they make you pay 20.00 to check it. This information should been given when the tickets were purchased.

    Came here for Radiohead. The acoustics were decent. The facilities were very clean. For a sold out show there were a ton of empty seats.

    The food is really good and less expensive than other arenas.

    The arena is home to the Hornets, Tulane NCAA basketball, & the Sugar Bowl Basketball Classic. In the days after Hurricane Katrina, the arena played a pivotal role after the Dome suffered damages.

    If a ball drops into your lap while at the game, it's probably because Anthony Davis just swatted some guy's shot.
