Can you Tailgate at the Stadium?
There is no tailgating at the arena, but there are plenty of bars in downtown Brooklyn to enjoy with friends. Popular bars include McMahons Public House, The Montrose, North Pole Pub, and Uncle Barrys. Fans should also check out Shake Shack, Morgans BBQ, and James before heading out to the arena.
How Much is Barclays Center Parking?
Parking will be difficult at Barclays Center due to no on-site parking options at the venue. If you park further away from the site, you can find better deals via parking rates. Some places that worth checking out include 470 Hudson Ave, 182 Schermerhorn St. – Weekends Only, and 201 S Portland Ave – Valet. Parking ranges will vary between $11 -$35 depending on where you end up parking, but the cheaper places fill up quickly for events. Street parking will be next to impossible to find for big games, so your best bet is to find a parking garage, or use public transportation.
Should I Take Public Transportation?
Fans looking to take public transportation can use one of the many subway lines that run through NYC. There are a total of eleven train stops that pass through or stop near the Barclays center including 2,3,4,5, B, D, N, Q, and R.
