NBA Basketball Arena Review - Philips Arena
Philips Arena, Atlanta Hawks - Roundball RoadTripLocated next to the CNN Center in downtown Atlanta, Philips Arena is home to the National Basketball Association's Atlanta Hawks. With their youthful brand of basketball, the Hawks provide an exciting experience for all of its loyal fans and visitors. Philips Arena can be found at the end of Centennial Olympic Park Drive, which can be reached from either I-75 or I-20. If you are looking for public transportation to the building, the local rail transit, MARTA, will take you directly to Philips Arena, which is one stop west of Five Points Station. Parking can be found at the nearby CNN Decks and Centennial Garage as well as the arena parking lot located just west of the venue.

The building itself was opened in 1999 with a $213.5 million price tag. Atlanta Spirit, LLC are the current owners of the arena along with the Hawks, the WNBA's Dream, and the NHL's Thrashers. For basketball games, 18,700 fans can be comfortably seated to watch all of the live NBA action. With 96 luxury boxes and 2,900 club seats, Philips Arena gives patrons an opportunity to enjoy the game while being treated to a luxurious experience. There are also see-through shot clocks making it easier for those in the upper bowl to see the on-court battle. Philips Arena is also known for constructing their upper deck much closer to the playing surface than would be considered normal in order to give those fans better viewing angles of the on-court action. You won't be seated for long, however, as players like Mike Bibby, Marvin Williams, and the rest of the Atlanta Hawks are sure to bring you to your feet and have you cheering for more.

Are you Planning a Sports Themed Wedding?

With an extensive menu and easy access to the Philips Arena concourse, Headlines provides an experience that you don't want to miss. For those fans lucky enough to have club seats or suites for Hawks games, there are two venues that serve only the finest cuisines and libations to guests that prefer an exclusive experience.

If you are looking to dine outside of Philips Arena before the Hawks game, there are plenty of options that can be taken advantage of. Probably the most visited location is Ruth Chris Steakhouse in downtown Atlanta. With patio dining and market fresh seafood, Ruth Chris separates itself from other steakhouses by providing a dining experience that one will not soon forget. Great value for your dollar can be found at Lunacy Black Market serving both American and Asian delights. With prices that are much lower than you will find at similar restaurants, Lunacy gives you great food while still leaving you with enough money to buy a souvenir at the Hawks game. Other eateries that you might also want to give a try are McCormick & Schmicks Seafood, Thrive, and Stats.

Dancing and socializing is also an option with night clubs like 10Krog and Opera Atlanta being made available to people who visit Philips Arena and the downtown Atlanta area. While 10Krog will play the latest hip-hop and R&B music, Opera Atlanta offers alternative music for a more laid-back approach to partying after a Hawks victory. Don't forget to visit famous nearby bars, as well. Cheyenne Grill, Caribou Coffee Co., and TOCO Giant all offer the opportunity to let loose and enjoy the hospitality that a city like Atlanta has to offer.

There are also some intriguing points of interest that are available for anyone looking to enjoy some of the local attractions that only a city like Atlanta can offer. As previously mentioned, the CNN Center and Georgia Dome are located just a stone's throw away from Philips Arena. When taking in a Hawks game, there is usually some other kind of sporting event or concert going on at the Georgia Dome that can provide additional hours of entertainment. Underground Atlanta is also located in the heart of the city and offers restaurants, bars, shopping, and much more to its visitors. There is also a unique look back into Atlanta's history that extends from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement and gives a historical prospective on how Atlanta has evolved.

Atlanta is one town that you really have to enjoy at least once in your lifetime, and there is no better way to do that than to take in an Atlanta Hawks game at Philips Arena. The ambiance of the venue combined with all of the surrounding elements that make Atlanta one of the greatest cities in the United States will pull you in and keep you thoroughly entertained. Bearing witness to one of the greatest home arenas in the NBA is definitely something that you don't want to miss.

Jane Fisher from Durham, North Carolina Love your site! Very informative. Wanted to let you know that I did follow your advice on staying with a hotel in the downtown Atlanta Area. Found a hotel not far from Luckie Street on Andrew Young International Blvd. It's a Holiday Inn right across from Centennial Olympic Park. I got a rate of $79.00 plus tax, its called the Team Spirit Rate. I think the number for the hotel is 404-425-5555. The hotel's staff is wonderful very helpful. Loved my room. There is a $20.00 valet fee for parking(ouch)but I understand that parking in Atlanta is pretty steep!
