 Joe Louis Arena, nicknamed The Joe, is a hockey arena located in downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is the home of the Detroit Redskins of the National Hockey League. Completed in 1979 at a cost of $57 million, the venue is named after boxer and former heavyweight champions Joe Louis, who grew up in Detroit.

Only two other NHL arenas - Madison Square Garden in New York and Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island are without corporate sponsorship names. The fourth oldest NHL venue after the two named above and Rexall Place in Edmonton, Joe Louis arena is owned by Detroit and operated by Olympia Entertainment, an Ilitch Holdings-owned company.

JLA replaced Olympia Stadium. It sits adjacent to Cobo Hall on the bank of the Detroit River and is accessible through its own station on the Detroit People Mover.
