There are many theatres, concert halls and arenas across Brooklyn and greater Long Island, but Barclays Center combines the benefits of all three types of venues into one elegant structure. This multifunctional arena boasts not only professional basketball but also concerts, professional wrestling and e-sports, so it is important to book Barclays Center parking ahead of the event with BestParking. The venue was designed to be the centerpiece of the Pacific Park development complex, situated in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights neighborhood. The venue opened to the public in September 2012, with the inaugural concert being a performance later in the month by Jay-Z. Barclays Center was designed by architecture firm Ellerbe Becket with concepts from Frank Gehry, utilizing pre-weathered steel for the venue’s exterior in order to mimic Brooklyn's famous brownstone townhouses. While the venue has hosted the Brooklyn Nets since its inception, it was home to the New York Islanders of the NHL from 2015 to 2020. The New York Liberty of the WNBA in turn took up residence at the venue in 2021. The venue’s naming rights were sold to the British Barclays banking group in 2007, five years prior to opening. The stadium hosts several NCAA basketball events, including the annual Legends Classic and Barclays Center Classic tournaments, and it previously hosted the Atlantic Coast Conference tournaments in 2017 and 2018. The arena has hosted notable UFC MMA matches, including UFC 208, UFC 223 and UFC Fight Night in 2019, along with wrestling events such as the WWE’s Tables, Ladders and Chairs event in 2012, NXT Takeover in 2015 and SummerSlam in 2016. Recent artists to perform at the venue include Twenty One Pilots, Ariana Grande, Jonas Brothers, Bruno Mars, Demi Lovato, Phil Collins and Shania Twain, among many others. With such a wide range of events available to attend, it can be difficult to find Barclays Center parking unless you book ahead of time with BestParking.
