Old venue that’s been rejuvenated. It serves as a fine cornerstone to the great downtown Asheville area. It does not have all the new seating amenities like newer arenas. There are not fancy scoreboards or video boards for sporting events. Beer is served and the food is good for arena food. The ticket takers are nice. The bathrooms are well maintained.

Great venue. Easy to get around. Would have given 5 stars if they didn't charge for the drink wrist band. The drinks are expensive enough.

Went there to see Ghost. Well-kept facilities, easy parking and quality food and drinks. The staff was very professional.

Great staff! Very approachable, knowledgeable, and kind! Beer lines were moderate in length but moved quick! Descent selection of craft beers and the normal offered also. Eat before you go - stadium food at it's worst! Even the "local" stuff was not a pleasant experience. Go early - get in the parking garage before no more spaces are available - yes this will happen if you wait!
