WH has posted their chart with differences between 75 and 85:

kind of surprised that so much is green 85 given most of the other venues the 85 tickets are pretty much the first few sections on the side

Yeah, they can get away with it given the venue. I got shoved into the $75 section too. Not happy.

Btw, went here for Jay Z and really enjoyed the venue. Should be a great place to see DMB.

Yeah, I am born and raised in Brooklyn Heights.

I think the arena itself is gorgeous and will be a great thing for many parts of the borough. That being said, Brooklyn today is not the same place I grew up in (I'm only 26 and the changes have over the past 15-20 years have been astonishing to witness first hand), and I now refer to the Barclays Center as the final nail in the coffin of the bastardization of Brooklyn.

What do you think about it?

Eric, what bars/pubs are you hitting up before and after the show?

TheNoise
11-15-2012, 07:01 AM
before the show will probably just go home from work to change and get ready. AFTER the show though, mmmmmm beer.

first stop will definitely be: http://thekbh.com/ - it's two-ish blocks south from barclays and it's huge so even if it is crowded, there should still be space. a huge draft beer list.

have to plot out a possible route after that but that will definitely be first

I'm really looking forward to this. I enjoyed my Izod show, but the arena had nowhere near the energy of, say, an MSG show. Barclays will definitely have that vibe. Sold out, more intimate new arena in Brooklyn, Friday night, end of the tour... :nod

anyone have a seating chart with numbers? i've got 1 & 2 in a row and am wondering which side of the section that is on.

TheNoise
12-16-2012, 12:39 PM
ah, this says:

seat #1 is always closer to the adjacent section with a lower (section) number, for example seat #1 in Section 24 is on the aisle next to section 23 and seat #1 in section 223 is closer to section 222.

http://thekbh.com/ - 84 St. Marks Pl, Brooklyn, NY - 5 minute walk south of the venue
best place super close for drinking. tons of great beer on tap. as for food, they have good beer hall type food (brats, kielbasa, pretzels, burgers, etc). big indoor space with long tables, waiters for beer and food, but very casual. this will be my first stop after the show, and possibly before the show for food/drink depending on how much time we have after work.

if that type of food isn't your ideal thing there are also great burgers and hotdogs close:

http://www.barkhotdogs.com/ (Park Slope location) - 474 Bergen St, Brooklyn NY - 6 minute walk south. fantastic hot dogs (really). 4 or 5 good beers on tap. order at the counter and they'll bring your food when ready.

http://67burger.com/ (Park Slope location) - 234 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn NY - 5 minute walk south.
my favorite burgers in the city. endless combos. great curly fries (get chipotle mayo to go with them!) and good beers on a tap. same deal as above, order at the counter and they bring it to you when ready.

also, if you're into chains (won't judge), there is an Applebee's in the atlantic center (upstairs) which is across the street from barclays.

haven't tried this place yet but it's supposed to be pretty good - http://www.woodlandnyc.com/ - 242 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn NY - 6 minutes south. cocktails, good beers (both on tap and tons of bottles), supposed to be good food. sit down place, waiters all that jazz.

TheNoise
12-19-2012, 02:31 PM
http://www.brooklynbeast.com/ - 638 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY - 12 minute walk east. one of our favorite restaurants in brooklyn. small plates, amazing food. little further away but really great. casual but standard sit down place with waiters. (get the fried manchego cheese bites if you go there, dooooo it.)
