Allen Arena is the on-campus indoor sports facility of Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee and is also used for daily chapel services and occasional concerts. Besides being the home of Lipscomb sports teams (the "Bisons"), it has been announced as the home of the new Nashville franchise, the Nashville Rhythm, in the now-revived American Basketball Association. This provides a unique challenge, as this will make it one of the few professional sports teams in North America forbidden from selling beer or any other alcoholic beverages, as such is prohibited by the strict Church of Christ beliefs of the school. Arena seating capacity is between 4,000 and 5,000 depending upon the purpose for which it is being used.

The AllenArena is a very versatile facility, and other than hosting athletic events and on campus convocations, the arena hosts many events such as dinners, concerts, area-wide worship services, and graduations (the university and Nashville surrounding high schools).
The arena was named in honor of James C. and Linda Allen, the facility's primary benefactors.
James Allen is a member of the board of trustees for the university and worked for the university at one time.
