The Arena and Neighborhood:
Part of the complex that is home to the Raiders' and Athletics' Coliseum, Oracle Arena is at the top our list for horribly located basketball arenas.The neighborhood isn't the nicest in Northern California, and while it's not exactly unsafe, it does feel a little sketchy, being very industrial. There aren't many places to go nearby pre or post game. There is a sports bar located within The Hilton Oakland Airport (found on our exterior map) and they offer a shuttle to the game.
The stadium is easily accessible to the BART, making it the most convenient way to get to the game. Get off at the Coliseum/Oakland Airport stop which is only a short hike.
If you're going to drive, then we recommend using the stadium parking lots. It's around $18, which seems pricey, but they can basically charge whatever they want since there arent really other options. There isn't much street parking available nearby. Some BART stations offer free parking and there are a handful of neighborhoods west of the Coliseum you can park at to take the train in. (Visit www.bart.gov for more info on public transportation)
