NBA Basketball Arena Review - Bradley Center
Downtown Milwaukee is the epicenter for one of the great arena experiences in the NBA. The Bradley Center, home to the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks, is a true testament to the hard working nature of the Bucks fan base. Owned by the state of Wisconsin, the Bradley Center is able to hold just under 19,000 of the league's most vocal fans. It is these die-hard Bucks followers that have propelled them back into legitimacy in the Eastern Conference. With retired numbers celebrating the likes of Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar hanging from the rafters, fans are able to get a sense of exactly how instrumental the Bucks organization has been in the success of the NBA.
The arena itself is located on Fourth Street in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. With over 10,000 parking spaces within walking distance of the building, there is ample opportunity for close, convenient parking and quick access to all of the live Milwaukee Bucks action. There is also a parking garage adjacent to the Bradley Center, which allows for a shortened walking distance to enter the venue. If you do not live in the downtown area, I-43 is a great way to get you directly to the arena, no matter whether you are coming from the north or south. Public buses in transit to and from the Bradley Center are also available if necessary.
Upon arriving at the facility, you will undoubtedly need to replenish your energy before the start of the live action. To satisfy these needs, you can visit any of the 12 available permanent food stands as well as many additional kiosks which provide all different kinds of game-time favorites like hot dogs, popcorn, soda, and beer. There are also multiple Grill 71 outlets for a more traditional hamburger experience, or the available ZipZa pizza stands also offer great food at more than affordable prices.
Another great aspect of the Milwaukee Bucks' Bradley Center is the sheer amount of restaurants in the general vicinity of the building. Many different eateries are just a stone's throw away and can easily be accessed by either walking or taking a cab. A formal experience can be had at the Capital Grille, as this location offers a great variety of traditional American dishes along with a wine list that makes over 350 wines available to the visitor. If you are looking for a bar and grille type of atmosphere, look no further than GameTime right across the street from the Bradley Center. This sports bar offers the perfect atmosphere to sit down, enjoy a cold beverage and hot dinner, and enjoy the company of Bucks fans in a wide-open setting. The Safe House and Taylor's are two Milwaukee nightclubs that will keep the adrenaline pumping long after the game is over. The Safe House is one of Milwaukee's best-known party hubs, and many famous actors and sports figures have frequented the inside of the Safe House. Taylor's is more of the hip and trendy bar that offers great service and an enjoyable experience.
If you arrive in Milwaukee before the Bucks game and are looking for something to do, there is always some form of entertainment available to you at Old World Third Street. The area, while once known for housing many German families, has now added boutiques, shops, and restaurants to its public offerings. Pere Marquette Park is also located in the general vicinity and gives you a sense of perfect serenity away from the busy streets of Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Public Museum on Wells Street also offers a look into one of the largest collections of historical and cultural artifacts anywhere in America.
provides the perfect opportunity to take in some great basketball,
as the Milwaukee Bucks appear to be an NBA team that is quickly
rising to prominence in the league. The best aspect of visiting the
Bradley Center is that there are plenty of local attractions to
frequent if you want to enjoy the down-home feel that the city of
Milwaukee provides to its visitors.
