Clean and comfortable with a lot of food and drink choices. It is within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. The drinks were expensive, but they are at any arena. The parking lot we used needed paved and was difficult to find.

This was our first time attending a concert at the PPG Arena. Attended the Fleetwood Mac Concert , it was excellent! Acoustics could be better. The big screen monitors helped us feel closer and to give a better view of the entire stage area.

We've been there twice. Once for a James Taylor concert and a Pen's playoff game. It was great. Food's a bit pricey but you'd expect that. Parking could be much better as we parked up the street a couple of blocks away on Fifth Ave....More

It's on the edge of a sketchy area, which is typical in a city. It is also next to a college, and the downtown area. It is well lit with many people around. Thousands of people go here often for hockey games an events... More
