Barclays Center, Brooklyn

Barclays Center Brooklyn

Partially owned by Jay-Z – need I say more about the level of talent Barclays Center attracts? Barbra Streisand, Beyonce (obviously), Neil Diamond, Elton John, Linkin Park, Justin Timberlake – and that’s in less than a year! The food is awesome, the venue is still new and getting there could not be easier.
