Boardwalk Hall is a multi-purpose facility located on the iconic Atlantic City Boardwalk and features the 141,000-square-foot main arena with a capacity of 14,770 seats as well as the 23,100-square-foot Adrian Phillips Theater with a capacity of 3,200. Constructed in 1929 as the country’s original convention center, for 85 years Boardwalk Hall has dazzled guests and residents of Atlantic City with legendary stage icons such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and the Beatles. In 2001, a $90-million restoration project was completed to transform the original convention hall into its current state as a modern special events arena capable of hosting concerts, sporting events and family shows. Boardwalk Hall is owned and funded by the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). Spectra by Comcast Spectacor provides both Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Boardwalk Hall.

Great view from section 121, middle floor stage. Food drink prices were average not too high. Don't be fooled by the long li e that runs up the baordwalk past Cesears, walk up to the building they have several lines open to go in.

We were there for my son's graduation. It was a pretty comfortable place and the staff seemed to be pleasant and accommodating. The food choices are VERY basic. If you want anything healthy or beyond the typical arena fare of hot dogs, burgers and wings...More

14 of us were there to watch MMA fights. We had great seats, getting through security was not bad, Security staff was very friendly. Great place for sporting events. I don't know anything about music events.

The Boardwalk was a great place to spend the day. The tram was the best way to see the entire seven miles. The driver was very informative and made our day fun.

I am not aware of specific parking for Boardwalk Hall but you can park at Caesar’s which is nearby and has ample parking. It is a short walk on the boardwalk

The closer the better but I don’t think there is a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are amazing and there are no columns or barriers to block your view. Enjoy!
