Nashville Predators Event Guide

What time do gates open prior to a Predators game?

Doors open 1-hour before the puck drops at Bridgestone Arena.

Where are good places to eat before a Predators game?

Nashville is known for having unbelievable southern food. Of the many great places Arnold Country Kitchen and Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant are both close and worth checking out. For great barbeque try Jack’s Bar-B-Que or Rippy’s. If you are looking for something quick and easy near Bridgstone Arena, visit Riff’s Fine Street Food, or The Grilled Cheeserie. They are two of the best food trucks you will find. No Nashville food guide is complete without some places to see live music. Robert’s Western World, and Listening Room Café are both within a mile of the arena and won’t disappoint. Other great places are El Rey, The Southern Steak & Oyster, and Etch.

Where is the best place to park at Bridgestone Arena?

Parking at Bridgestone Arena is limited and we recommend getting to the area early or purchasing a parking pass. The most convenient parking option in the area is the garage on the southwest corner of Bridgestone Arena. Right across the street is another large parking garage that is also great place to look. The next closest parking option is a few blocks to the east of the arena at 3rd Avenue South and Demonbreun St. at the Pinnacle Garage. Another good option is at Cumberland Park just on the other side of Cumberland River.

Does my child need a ticket to go to a Predators game?

Children under 2 years old do not require a ticket to a Predators game and must sit on a parents lap for the duration of the game. It is best practice to bring proof of your child’s age with you to avoid any last second issues at the gate.
