    Go for the Sharks, stay for the blood. Fun fact: they usually top regular season but totally blow it in post. I go every chance I can from SF, and get second row seats for my birthday. Check🏒🥅

    The "Shark Tank" hosted UCLA & Kansas in a 2007 Elite 8 match-up that featured 10 current NBA players. Among them were Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook as well as NBA champion Mario Chalmers.

    Get seats in section 101-103 or 201-203 for most convenient access from the front entrance on Santa Clara Street.

    Get here EARLY to have the best chance at Giveaways and On-Ice competitor selection. Also, happy hour is the hour prior to warmups (30-90 minutes prior to game time)

    Hello NCAA fans. Looking for fun things to do? Take a trip to Santana Row, 5 miles west of downtown. It's a faux-European village, and electric automaker Tesla has a popular demo-store there. Read more

    Club seat patrons can have food/alcohol delivered to their seats. Drink at Patty's Inn before going to the game. If you need help deciding which Seats to purchase for your next Sharks game, check out Read more

    Get the fancy nachos with meat and then hop next door for the crappy nacho cheese to pour over.

    One of the best venues to catch the many events that take place in the South Bay. This place has great concerts, shows, and is the home of the San Jose Sharks ice hockey team. Go Sharks!

    From the San Jose Sharks & giant music acts to Ringling Brothers & Cirque du Soleil, this 17,000+ seat stadium transforms from Shark Tank to rock concert in hours. Easy access to public transport.

    The home of the San Jose Sharks! during the playoffs, the atmosphere inside is electric! Head down Santa Clara St. for a bar to watch the game if you don't get tickets.

    Really liked coming to a concert here. Super clean, good food selection, $15 for a jalapeno sausage dog, onion rings and bottled water. Helpful ushers. Parking expensive.

    The sound was great for a concert. However, there is zero leg room so if people have to get in and out of the rows, it's super annoying. More importantly, the safety risk of that layout is horrendous.

    SHARKS! if you want to try and get autographs, wait at the back at the players entrance. but get there early because there's not a lot of room. :)

    While expensive, getting some seats right on the glass for a Sharks game is one of the best experiences ever. Also, tons of big name shows come through.

    Get here at least an hour early to park on Santa Clara (and save some money on parking).

    Survival Tip: Every time the Sharks are on the power-play, the "Jaws" theme is played. Make sure to move your hands up and down like jaws chomping with the rest of the fans.

    Wtf? This is the SAP Center in dtSJ, NOT a chiropractor's office! Pretty sure thousands of ppl didn't attend concerts and Sharks games at a chiropractor's.... Get your shit together, foursquare!

    Went for IEM San Jose the food in the stadium is extremely expensive but you can play Hearthstone for food if you're good at that or you could just walk 10 minutes for subways

    When u are in ur seat there isnt a better arena. When they built the arena they didnt think of 1 thing. There is only 1 concourse. Upper deck and lower deck lead to the same concourse. Way 2 crowded.

    The building is really small. There's only two levels, and each section has at most 30 rows (which even that is a bit of a stretch). I don't see how you can fit 17,000+ in there.

    If the HP Pavilion’s foundation pilings were stacked end-to-end, they would be 2.5x taller than Mount Everest, or roughly the same size as Brent Burns on skates.
