Little Caesars Arena, an innovative and award-winning multi-use venue, is home to the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons and hundreds of other sports, entertainment and community events every year.  The fan-centric facility located in the heart of The District Detroit offers unique heritage elements, one of the largest center-hung videoboards in the world, 3-D image mapping, a versatile sky deck, over 1,300 display screens and more. 

Whether you’re a season ticket holder or it’s your first time visiting, there is so much to do and see that we’ve rounded up what’s new and what you need to know before visiting Little Caesars Arena. 


Before the excitement of a live event begins, you need to get to the venue! Fortunately, with 8,500 parking spaces across more than five parking structures and multiple surface parking lots, finding safe and convenient parking is a breeze. Please note that all parking structures and lots are cashless. 

  • Olympia Parking provides guests the ability to pre-book their parking before reaching their destination, securing a space in their favorite parking facility. Visitors can pre-pay for parking passes based on the event they’re attending, at ParkDistrictDetroit.com or ParkWhiz.com. 
  • Guests who do not wish to pre-book parking can access Olympia Parking operated facilities with a credit card, based on availability. 
  • After an event, guests can hang out in The District Detroit as long as they’d like, as all parking facilities are open 24 hours. 
  • Accessible parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis at the going rate with presentation of an accessible license plate or hang tag. Check out an accessible parking map here

Food and Beverage 

Cheering on your favorite team or dancing the night away at a sold-out concert can work up an appetite! Whether you’re grabbing a bite or drink before, during or after an event, Little Caesars Arena boasts four delicious restaurants and an array of in-venue concession stands for quick service food and beverage on the go. 

See below for details and great new menu offerings.

  • Mike’s Pizza Bar features hand-crafted pizzas, brew on tap, wines, and an option to sit and eat, or take your food to-go. This season, Mike’s is expanding their menu, adding a Spicy Detroit pizza and Lolly Pop Drummies. 
  • PointsBet Sports Bar offers a full food and drink menu, including Caramel Crunch Wings and a Catfish Po’boy. 
  • The Mixing Board is a sit-down restaurant that features made-from-scratch items from shareables to salads, flatbreads, pizzas, and a full bar. New menu items include Prosciutto Pie with Figs and Char-Grilled Tri Tip with Warm Potato Salad.
  • UWM District Market is a quick, one-stop-shop for a bite to eat, a cocktail, bottle of wine or coffee and features various cuisines to satisfy all tastes.

All of these venues are open at 4:00pm on event days. Pro tip: eating at one of LCA’s restaurants gives you direct access to the arena when it is time for the doors to open and events to begin, avoiding lengthy lines outside.

In addition to dine-in restaurants, concession stands throughout the arena offer a wide variety of dishes, including fan-favorite Little Caesars pizza. There will also be a rotation of local food vendors to display the array of diverse tastes you can find around the city of Detroit.

Mouth-watering new menu items this year include:
