The stadium's exterior has nice architecture and its proximity to the water gives it spectacular views. Inside the arena is very nicely laid out and is well adorned. Numerous options for food and drinks. I sat in the nosebleeds behind one of the backboards. I could easily see the action. Oddly enough I could see the action better than I could see the jumbo tron, which I thought was a little strange but certainly not a knock. I parked at the Bayfront parking garage. It was $15, not great but definitely not horrible considering you could spend $40 for parking at a Dolphins game. Traffic is usually a nightmare, but you'll be on the highway within 10 or 15 minutes so it's not the end of the world.
Great venue: lots of bars, big open air space outside with seating, souvenirs, big bar, and separate performance stage. The heat game we attended was lively and exciting - so the evening was a success in both accounts. I'd recommend going to a heat game here, and I'd also recommend the facility in general - for any major event!
In A Nutshell: -Took my lovely lady to a Heat vs. Spurs game in the middle of a cross-country trip. -This arena is state-of-the-art, immaculately detailed, warm and has a great open airy-layout. -It's easy to find in the "Manhattan of Miami", traffic can backup some, but just get dropped off to avoid it. -The nose-bleed seats were very good and there was no issue of missing any of the action on the hardwood. -I really enjoyed the easy access, flowing foot traffic and various Miami-based concessions available to purchase and/or eat. Overall, this is very nice NBA arena, definitely worth a look if you're in the 305.
Experience a Miami Heat game 🔥 If you want to watch a NBA team, this is the place. The atmosphere they have during the games is fun and energetic. I loved watching the Miami Heat play at this arena!! It is truly a fun time to go to one of their games! Great game and show, everything is well organized, secure. Great arena! If you had the opportunity, don't miss!
One of the most exciting, versatile, evens spaces downtown Miami has to offer. Owned by the same owner of Carnival this beautiful multi-purpose facility hosts one of the most exciting, concerts, sporting events, and activities in Miami. Home of the Miami Heat it is definitely an attraction for locals and tourists alike. The seating is architecturally design to get a great view even in the nose bleed section so a great place to watch your favorite band. Their is a great effort in food variety and drinks available that is in constant rotation so expect the best Miami can offer with a variety of cultural food experiences. This venue is also home to Hyde night club located under the arena and does offer parking at a variable rate. A must see!
