UBS Arena, developed by S.D. Malkin Properties, is the home of the New York Islanders ice hockey team and is a groundbreaking concert venue. Located within the historic Belmont Park, the Arena is the first of a new generation of arenas – purpose built, with a focus on the experience of its guests. With timeless design reminiscent of iconic New York architecture, including Grand Central Station and the Park Avenue Armoury, the Arena sets a new standard in sports and music venue entertainment.
The Arena, spanning 700 square feet, can host 17,000 guests for a hockey game and between 15,000 and 19,000 for a concert. The Arena’s VIP Clubs and suites are inspired by the classic interiors of the King Cole Bar at the St Regis Hotel and Sardi’s. The Arena is also the location for the Isles Pro Shop, a store dedicated to selling the team’s merchandise and curated by the team behind Value Retail.
