Atlanta — State Farm Arena, located at 1 State Farm Drive in downtown Atlanta, has opened its doors following a $192 million renovation program, the second largest renovation in NBA history.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club committed to an 18-year lease extension to remain in downtown Atlanta at the city-owned arena through 2046. The former Philips Arena features the NBA’s third-largest center-hung scoreboard and fan-friendly food pricing. Restaurant and entertainment options include Zac Brown’s Social Club, Topgolf Swing Suites, Killer Mike’s Swag Shop and a baseline bar and club known as Courtside Club.

The Atlanta Hawks celebrated the arena with its home opener against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, Oct. 24. With a sold-out crowd, the Hawks beat the Mavericks 111 to 104. The arena hosts approximately 200 events and nearly 2 million guests annually.
