What could you say about the place that Michael built? If you are a Bulls or Blackhawks fan then this is a must stop for a game. I suggest drinking on Madison St. and hopping on one of the many trollies to the stadium. The drinks are bit pricy!

Home of the Bulls and the main concert venue in Chicago. Fairly institutional and removed from the city. Hard to love it but a relatively efficient and modern place for a major show.Recommended for:

Home of the Chicago Bulls, and the stadium the Michael Jordan built. Check out the iconic statute of MJ out front, and don't miss the recent addition of the Scottie Pippen statueRecommended for:

What can I say, its the home of the Blackhawks. If you've never seen a Hawks game, I highly recommend it. Even if you're not a sports fan, you need ot go for the experience. The crowd is amazing and extremely loud when it come to supporting their team. There is a certain energy you feel in this building that you won't experience any where else.

Oh yeah, the temple of the Bulls and the Blackhawks. nice stadium to watch great sport. And off course it is a must to see the Michael Jordan statue in front of the stadium, which still attracts a lot of people.

I've never cheered on the Blackhawks or Bulls play here, but I have visited the United Center to see the Circus! As far a Hockey goes, my biases are clear: I grew up cheering the Minnesota North Stars, Go Sharks!, and the old Chicago Stadium (aka The Madhouse on Madison) was a much better place to watch Original 6 games. And why can't indoor arenas add more local architectural flare like the baseball stadiums do?
So for the cookie-cutter stadium that it is and with the associated modern amenities (and prices), United Center is "A-OK". And the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus performance was highly entertaining.

The United Center is the home of the Chicago Bulls, and it's surprising how much smaller it looks on the inside. Outside there's a statue of Michael Jordan in his iconic pose. It's a bit out of the way though.

United Center is a nice sports arena that's home to both the Bulls and Blackhawks. The stadium is less than 20 years old and was partially renovated in 2010 so it has a lot of state of the art features.
I got to sit eight rows from the court so the view and the whole experience was incredible. Tickets are hefty, but if you can splurge, do it!
Awesome energy among the fans and there's always something entertaining happening when the game isn't going.
There are a lot of food options, but it's very mediocre.

Go here for the Bulls, duh. Derek Rose is the darling of Chicago and if you get a chance to see him play while you're in town, take it. the energy at the United Center is unmatched, and it's watched over by the glorious statue of Michael Jordan at the entrance. His spirit will always live within Chicagoans.
The area around the United Center used to be really rough, but now it's been revamped and the bars and restaurants in the area are completely catered to both basketball games and hockey games, they even have shuttles from some of them to the games so you don't have to worry about parking. It's a good time.

Can't say I even saw the Jordan statue as a local friend drove me around the stadium and did not stop. However, I found this arena to be located in a poor part of town and did not seem reflect my views on the "Madhouse." There doesn't appear to be a subway station near the arena, thus I would think sustainable transportation would be a challenge to the arena.
