NBA Basketball Arena Review - Time Warner Cable Arena
Hans Steiniger at Time Warner Cable Arena - Roundball RoadTripIf you are looking for a great atmosphere where you can interact with fellow Charlotte Bobcats fans while watching some of the most exciting basketball in the NBA, the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina is one venue that you don't want to miss. With open walkways and terraces, the building provides more of an open-air feeling rather than the usual cozy confines that characterize most NBA arenas. "The Cable Box," as it is more affectionately known to Bobcats fans allows patrons ample room to enjoy some of the best athletes in the world.

With 19,500 people able to watch a Charlotte Bobcats game, Time Warner Cable Arena is one of the bigger NBA venues in terms of number of available seats. Owned by the city of Charlotte, the TWC Arena has the distinction of having the largest video screens of any indoor arena. Those who are searching for ways to arrive the arena should know that the building is located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte on East Trade Street and can be accessed by many different highway systems as well as the Lynx Light Rail Transit line. Parking should not be a general concern either, as there are up to 30,000 parking spaces within a 15-minute walking distance of the TWC Arena.

Time Warner Cable Arena - Roundball RoadTripOne of the best amenities of TWC Arena is the "Rock the Rooftop" area located in the Uptown Concourse. It is the NBA's first indoor tailgating area with entertainment and food options for both children and adults. While the kids are shooting hoops on the practice courts or playing xBox with friends, parents can be enjoying traditional tailgating food and beverages at open tabletops situated around the Concourse. "Rock the Rooftop" also has a house DJ that plays popular music both before and after games so everyone can enjoy their favorite songs while they socialize with others. This is a truly special experience that is exclusive to the Charlotte Bobcats and Time Warner Cable Arena.

Many concession stands line the outer concourse area with all of your traditional arena favorites such as hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, nachos, and sodas. There are also specialty food kiosks that include a creamery as well as a roasted nuts outlet. If you are a club member of the Bobcats fanbase, there are two restaurants that are exclusively available to you. Having a bite to eat at either BackCourt or FrontCourt is a great way to either begin your evening or end a night that has been both exciting and unforgettable.

You also should think about taking advantage of some local restaurants that offer some great cuisines and flavorful ambiance that will satisfy anyone's tastes. Those that are searching for an affordable eatery need to look no further than Mert's Heart and Soul, which serves traditional American classics and southern specialty dishes. If you are looking for more of a sports bar or pub feeling, check out Ri Ra the Irish Pub and their wide selection well-known pub food and burgers. One upscale restaurant that you most assuredly do not want to miss out on is Bentley's on 27. With French and seafood offerings along with great American choices, Bentley's has quickly become one of Charlotte's favorite spots to dine.

The Sunset Club in Charlotte offers the premier nightlife spot to get top-quality drinks while dancing the night away. With a wide array of specialty beverages and luxurious VIP sections, the Sunset Club is truly one of the great night spots in the Charlotte area. The District Restaurant & Lounge in south Charlotte also provides working professionals and out-of-towners seeking an exciting night out with an experience that promotes relaxation and socializing. With big-screen televisions located throughout the property and plush couches at every turn, the District can make an evening unforgettable.

There are also numerous points of interest located in and around the Time Warner Cable Arena that any Charlotte Bobcats fan will be able to appreciate and enjoy. As Charlotte is a hotbed for NASCAR action and excitement, there are many attractions that will make your visit one to remember. The Richard Petty Experience, Lowe's Motor Speedway, and Adventures in Motorsports all can provide a tremendous look at what these powerful cars can do when they race on Sundays. If you are bringing the family along on your journey, the 105-acre Carowinds water park is a great way to enjoy some fun in the sun while in the Charlotte area.

As it is one of the new arenas in the NBA, the Time Warner Cable Arena proves that the Charlotte Bobcats organization is dedicated to giving fans the ultimate basketball experience. The city of Charlotte that surrounds the venue also provides a beautiful backdrop to supplement the outstanding offerings that the TWC Arena gives to its customers. With Michael Jordan leading the way in the front office, the Bobcats will continue to climb into the upper echelon of the NBA.
