Main drawback was drunk patrons talking & yelling throughout the performance, getting up every 20 minutes for another beer. We left after the show, before the encore & they were still selling alcohol. I... More

Nice venue. The surrounding area is a little ghetto but once you are inside it's nice. A lot of food to chose from and alcohol.

I caught a Devil's game here whilst in NY and was not disappointed. The vibe of the Prudential Center is great and crowd really gets into the game. Worth the detour.

Nice arena to watch a hockey game. The place was almost packed despite the Devils being in last place. Venue staff very helpful getting around. Decent food and beer options. Easy to get to from Manhattan. NJ transit to Newark Penn Station. Arena is 3 blocks away. Walkable and did not seem unsafe. Plenty of cops around for the game.... More
