Philips Arena Introduction

A giant, illuminated ATLANTA sign lights up the grand entrance of the contemporary Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Home to the National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Hawks and the Women’s National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Dream, the indoor arena hosts 160 events annually. It has hosted world-class concerts, family shows, conferences, and sporting events since its opening in 1999. It can seat over 18,000 visitors, and features private suites and club seats. Connected to world news hub CNN Center, it's within yards of the Georgia Dome, the Centennial Park District, and the dining, hotels, and entertainment of downtown Atlanta.
