I love coming to shows here, whether it be Comedy Shows, Rock Concerts, or Theatrical Plays. They really put together a good atmosphere and quality performances. There are plenty of places close by to eat or drink or both. Make a night of it!

We went up to Albany to see a CrossFit competition recently and have to say the facility was really nice. Beyond the organization of the event, the bathrooms and other areas of the Times Union Center were all really nice, clean and well maintained.

We come almost every year. It's a great event at a good venue. Can't really complain but nothing to brag about either.

Recently attended a concert at the TU center. Fairly good acoustics. Large clean rest rooms. Much better venue now that they have completely enclosed it. Parking at the nearby garage was a bit pricey at $20. Enjoyable night out.

I’m not sure, there’s plenty of parking garages and lots close to Times Union. Reasonably priced for events starting from $10 per vehicle and up. Hope this helps.
