NBA Basketball Arena Review - Oracle Arena
Constructed in 1966, Oracle Arena has seen a great deal of change and renovation over the years, but it is still one of those NBA arenas that you have to see at least once in your life. With room for just under 20,000 fans, Oracle Arena offers a cozy atmosphere, which keeps you firmly entrenched in the on-court action. With young stars like Stephen Curry leading the way, the Golden State Warriors are introducing a new generation of Warriors players to fans, young and old alike. With a focus on giving the customer the best service and the most value for their dollar, the Golden State Warriors makes the Oracle Arena experience one that you will remember well into the future.
Oracle Arena is located right next door to Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, which plays host to the Oakland Athletics and Oakland Raiders. The residual effect is plenty of parking and easy access to the building. Located right on Highway 880, the arena can easily be reached from every direction. You will want to allow a little extra time during rush hour traffic, as it can become slightly congested in the area from time to time. Parking takes place in the direct vicinity of the building, which affords you the opportunity to have your car looked after by police officers and security staff while you are enjoying the game. There are three different public transportation options for you to look into as well: Bay Area Rapid Transit, Capitol Corridor, and AC Transit. Each carries their own rates and routes, so you will want to call or obtain a daily schedule to see when is the best time to use this accommodation.
You will also be able to find the usual assortment of concession stands available to you on all three levels of Oracle Arena. The lines are generally short, and there is plenty of room to move about within the concourse area. The prices of the food and beverages inside of the arena are typical of what you would find in normal arenas across the country, and you have plenty of choices as to which kind of food you would like to indulge in. If you are able to obtain reservations, Levi Restaurants offer three Clubs within Oracle Arena that provide a pleasant, traditional restaurant experience while serving you with good food at a valuable price.
If you are looking for good restaurants to eat outside of Oracle Arena, there are a couple of spots that offer great American food along with an upbeat atmosphere that makes visiting these restaurants a genuine good time. On Hegenberger Road, less than half-a-mile from the arena, is Cafe California, which offers all of your American favorites while allowing you to sit outside on their expansive deck to enjoy a beautiful day in Oakland. For more of a bar-type experience, head over to the east section of Oakland known as Fruitvale. There you will find the Golden Hours Lounge, which offers the usual neighborhood bar experience with abundant choices of bottled beers and world-class liquors.
Oasis Bar, located on 12th Street in the Lake Merritt neighborhood of Oakland, not only offers one of the best places to dance in the city of Oakland, but they also serve high-quality drinks if you need some refreshments before you get your groove on. With live bands most every night of the week, Oasis Bar certainly offers a memorable experience for anyone looking for a little extra from their nightlife. You'll also want to check out Club Paradiso, which offers a full bar with patio dancing for those that get a little too warm inside. With a great atmosphere and very nice bartenders, Club Paradiso is definitely a place that you want to visit if you are looking for Oakland nightclubs.
There are many different points of interest and activities that you will want to look into when you are coming to Oracle Arena. If you want to learn about the history of California, visit the Oakland Museum of California. With exhibits that include nature, art, and old-school California, the Oakland Museum of California is really one place that you can't afford to miss. Of course, you will also want to visit the famous Oakland Zoo, which is known for producing awe-inspiring moments for both children and adults alike. The Oakland Zoo is located in a nice hilly section of Oakland, so you are able to enjoy the landscape of Oakland at the same time.
While it won't dazzle you with outstanding displays of technological advancement, Oracle Arena has the atmosphere and style of one of the top arenas in the NBA. With the Golden State Warriors climbing back to relevancy in the NBA, it is only a matter of time before this franchise begins to revisit the success that it had in the '60s and '70s. Don't miss out on a wonderful opportunity to visit the city of Oakland, and its main attraction, Oracle Arena.
