Scottrade Center

facebook - instagram - twitter - you tube


Scottrade Center is located in downtown St. Louis with a basketball seating capacity of almost 22,000.  Scottrade Center is located next to Peabody Opera House and attached to Kiel Parking Garage. 


Parking

Parking is usually no problem.  There are over 6500 available parking spaces within 1/3 mile (1800 feet) including 1,270 in an attached garage.  Parking meters in the Scottrade Center area are usually a 2-hour maximum.  Many surface lots also available around Scottrade Arena.


Transportation

Metro Link (light rail) provides transportation to the Civic Center Station near the Scottrade Center.  If you are arriving in St. Louis and going directly to the game, Metro Link provides service from St. Louis Lambert Airport to downtown St. Louis. 


Metro St. Louis.com provides information on Metro Link and Metro Line (bus) including fares and schedules.


Seating

Seat Maps


Premium Suites are available at various levels from Club Level suites that accommodate 16 people with room to purchase 4 more tickets to Penthouse Level (12 people + option for 4 more) and Double Penthouse Suites for 30 people + option for 5 more).  Catering is available through the St Louis Blues.  For more information call Suites Sales Department at 314-589-5284.


Personal note: We had similar accommodations at the Metrodome in Minneapolis - partial schedule for the Minnesota Twins.  Seating and view was great, and the catering excellent.  However, what did my wife (and all our guests) like the best?  The same thing the suites at Scottrade Center offer … private restrooms!  Get a group together and really enjoy the tournament. At least check it out!


Food and Beverage

Scottrade Center’s concession stands and portable carts offer traditional fare such as hot dogs, chicken tenders, pizza, nachos, and pretzels.  Concession stands also offer specialty foods such as piled up hamburgers, brats, tacos, salads and more.  Full beverage selection includes soft drinks, lemonade, bottled water, iced tea, beer and a variety of beer and microbrews, mixed drinks and wine.  Portable carts on both concourses offer additional specialty foods. Check out all the concessions options available at Scottrade Center.


Family priced concession stands in sections 314, 124 and 108 offer:

Small hot dogs - $5.00

Small nachos - $4.50

Popcorn, Candy, Bottled Water, 12-oz Pepsi Products - $3.00

Small Draft Beer - $5.00


Bags / Backpacks / Suitcases

Bags larger than 14 inches by 14 inches (i.e. backpacks, suitcases, beach bags, etc.) are prohibited.  


Airhorns, wrapped gifts or items, cans, bottles, coolers, sealed packages, drones, chemicals, plastic beverage containers, food and beverages, balloons, (regular and helium), oversized bags or backpacks, pets (other than service animals), lasers pointers / pens, sticks (including those on pennants or flags), selfie sticks, tripods, bipods, monopods, or weapons (buns, knives, chains, spikes, projectiles, tasers, etc) of any sort.  All purses and bags are subject to inspection.


Don’t Gamble – be prepared

Events in today’s world are such that at any time, stadium and/or NCAA officials may without notice, strictly restrict bags allowed in the stadium.  We recommend a stadium or NCAA approved clear plastic bag.  Such bags are generally available at Walmart and Target. Also check Walmart.com, Amazon.com or Target.com.


ATM’s

… and the answer to the most important question … Where are the ATM’s?.


Atm’s are located in the Atrium, at sections 102, 113, and 120 on the Plaza concourse, and sections 302, 318, and 330 on Mezzanine concourse.

Restaurants


Restaurant.com offers discount gift certificates to 94 restaurants in St. Louis (and 25-mile radius).  Most restaurants require a minimum purchase to use certificates and the amount is clearly shown before you make your purchase.  I have used these certificates for years and found them to be an excellent way to save.  Check it out.  Get on their e-mail list so you are aware of specials offered throughout the year.  Whatever your home city, Restaurant.com almost certainly serves your area - in addition to St. Louis.


Time to dine?  Restaurants.com offers information and listings for 360 St. Louis area restaurants.  Note – this is NOT the gift certificate company above.  That one is Restaurant.com - this one adds and “S” - restaurants.com.  Great site for dining anywhere - when traveling to St. Louis by car  and choosing where to dine along the way. Restaurants.com offers listings for virtually every city in America. 


Do you need or want to make a reservation for your dining?  It’s a snap when you use the services of Open Table.com.  There is no charge.  While staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu we decided to dine at the Bali restaurant. Instead of calling the restaurant on the hotel house phone, we opted to make reservations online at Open Table – it was soooo easy. Once you try it – you’ll be hooked.  Again – no charge – it’s a free service.
