Where are some good places to eat before a Rockets game?

For a truly unique Houston experience, try The Hubcap Grill. Their original downtown location is quaint and laid back, and their burgers will not disappoint. If you are looking for Mexican food try Irma’s. The walls are covered from floor to ceiling with fun knick-knacks and it is some of the best Tex-Mex around. Houston is known for having great Asian food, Goro & Gun, and Huynh are both worth checking out. If you are feeling adventurous try Bombay Pizza. The Indian-Italian fusion is incredibly unique and satisfying. Other good places are Reef, Mkt Bar, and Batanga.

Where can I find the 2018-2019 Houston Rockets schedule?

The Rockets 2018-2019 schedule is listed as soon as it is announced by the NBA. The Rockets play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference, which means games against the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, and New Orleans Pelicans. Game times are announced by the NBA as soon as the TV schedule is set. Houston Rockets’ home opener against the Charlotte Bobcats is typically one of the most popular games. If you are looking for Rockets news or scores, then visit our partners at CBS Sports. They are also a good source for the official Houston Rockets team roster.

Where are good places to park at Toyota Center?

The most convenient place to park is the large 2,500 spot garage adjacent to the arena. These places fill up quick so we recommend coming early or purchasing a parking pass. There are many other parking lots in the area, try looking to the north, or northwest of the arena as this is where the highest concentration of lots are. If you aren’t afraid of walking, try circling downtown for a street spot. Although inconsistent, this could be a great way to save a few dollars. The Metro also lets off close to Toyota Center and will allow you to bypass parking all together.

How can I buy cheap Houston Rockets tickets?

TicketCity offers a big selection of Houston Rockets tickets which include some of the lowest priced seats on the market. Rockets tickets fluctuate based on demand and opponent. Marquee Western Conference opponents, like the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, and Oklahoma City Thunder can drive up home game prices. While cheap tickets are more plentiful for non-conference opponents. Those early season games may offer best opportunity to purchase Rockets tickets near face value.

Does my child need a ticket to the Rockets game?

Any child under 36” tall can sit on a parents lap for the duration of the game. If you are bringing a child we recommend getting to the arena early to avoid any last minute hassles.

Houston Rockets Seating Recommendation

Back to Top

Floor 107

The absolute best seats at the Toyota Center are Floor 107. This section is unbelievably close to the action, with the first row just a few feet from the sideline. Floor 107 sits at center court and has great views to both sides of the floor and is equipped with comfortable cushioned chairs. Fans sitting in floor seats also have access to the exclusive Woodforest Club located in the player’s tunnel. Unbelievable views, comfortable chairs, and club access, make Floor 107 our top recommended place to sit at the Toyota Center.

Club 120

Located at center court, Club 120 has expansive views of the whole court, and is only one section over from both the Home and Away benches. The chairs in Club 120 are spacious, cushioned, and some of the most comfortable in the stadium. Fans can escape from the game to the luxury Rockets Club, with access to premium food and drinks.

Lower Level 114

If you are on a budget, we recommend sitting in Lower Level 114. Located behind the basket, the first few rows of Lower Level 114 are only a few feet behind the floor seats, and have fantastic views of half of the court. Tickets in this section are only marginally more expensive than seats in the upper level, but are much closer to the action. Lower Level 114 is located near the Rockets Bench and has great exposure to the Rockets players throughout the game.
