    These fans won the BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE. You could be sitting next to the glass at a Pens home game too. Check the DICK’S Facebook page on Sundays to find out how to enter: http://on.fb.me/XawERk

    The Bob Seger concert was great! The sound was fabulous. It's walking distance from the Omni William Penn. drinks were a little high in price but they were great! The staff was very helpful and polite

    Not a bad seat in the place! GREAT stadium seating... just be ready to buy $8 beers and know there is NOWHERE to smoke (no balconies/outdoor areas)

    Arrive early and visit the top level for a Burgatory burger before the game. Don't forget the fries... and take the time to seek out a Yuengling on draft.

    The Pittsburgh Penguins play at CONSOL Energy Center®, the country's first LEED® Gold Certified major sports venue. Recently, the team was named by Forbes magazine as having the NHL’s best fans!

    The drinks were good! The escalator was broken when we got there used step leaving. Very crowed place. Had a blast at the Stones concert!

    A really nice stadium. Clean and easy to get around. Great for Pens games but equally as good for the NCAA basketball games.

    Good place to park for game is the open air parking lot at intersect of Grant St&Forbes Av. I paid $5 for Sun nite gm. <10 min walk.Felt safe walking back at night. Rate near the Center was $20-25.

    Concerts sound horrible. Sold naming rights to everything, every level, gate and even the box office. Opened doors late to 2016 Boss concert, which led to a crush and people banging on doors - scary.

    Great atmosphere for hockey. Big names and lots of talent on the ice. Great for hockey games and other events. I've seen multiple concerts here and they have been a phenom.

    There's not a bad seat in the house. This arena deserves all of the awards it has received. A great arena for hockey.

    The Consol is a fantastic state of the art arena. Something Pittsburgh has needed for quite some time. The Pens have an absolutely great venue. Bring us home another CUP! Let's go Pens!

    During playoff games, home and away games are shown on the big screen outside the arena. It’s an unreal atmosphere to cheer for a Pens victory.

    Beautiful facility! Not a bad seat in the place! If you want to check out the giant Goalie Mask there's less of a crowd after the game when everyone's making a mad dash to get out of there!

    No Pepsi or Coke at this arena, they only have RC Cola. Try a Yuengling Beer and a Primanti Bros. sandwich. If you need help deciding which Seats to purchase for your next Penguins game, check out Read more

    Try to get row A in the upper bowl for extra leg room. Acoustics are a bit questionable when not mixed properly.

    This is the first time CONSOL has hosted the NCAA Tournament, but across the street in the old "Igloo", the #15 Coppin State Eagles knocked off #2 South Carolina in 1997.

    Eat before the show. Hot dogs were $7, soda $4 for 20 oz., water $3, and chips about the same. $22.50 for 2 hot dogs, 2 non-alcoholic drinks and a bag of chips. Beer and alcohol runs about $7 each.

    Be sure to wear some head gear with a chin strap so that you aren't injured by having your jaw hit the floor when you see this place for the first time. Awe inspiring.
