Every seat brings fans close to the action at CenturyLink Arena, with bowl seating for 5,000 people and additional floor seating for select events. Fans can enjoy a first-class dining experience before the game at Emilio’s, or they can chow down during the game at the Sports Zone, a restaurant and sports bar on the arena’s third floor that overlooks the ice, the stage, and the cage. Fans can also grab a coffee at Moxie Java or a sandwich from Blimpie’s Subs & Salads, conveniently located at the arena.
