Went to see a NHL game between the Tampa Bay Lightning ans d the Pittsburgh Penguins with a friend. The atmosphere in and around the arena was great and the location of the arena could not be any better, if you're staying in the city. They do have a policy to not to sell beer for ANYONE without their USA... More

We saw Bette Midler here last month ago. Unless we were seated in the front half of the arena, we had to rely on the two smallish screens to see the show. While Bette was awesome, the venue was not. If go, try to get a seat on the floor...up front to really see it all.

We were able to park a few blocks away. There is alot of food and merchandise. We could see well from our mid tier seats, and walked around to see from other vantage points. All the views were great. We had a wonderful time.

I came here to see Kevin Harts tour. Getting into the arena was easy. Food and drinks way overpriced. $5 for a bottle of water. $14 for a can of beer. The arena was packed and my seat was rather high up in the stadium. Next time I would pay extra for better seats. We were so high up in... More

Came here for Stanley Cup game 2, Lightening vs Blackhawks. This venue has easy parking, and accessibility from interstate is convenient. There are bars surrounding the stadium with decent live music, open air, and serve food. The arena is big beautiful and clean. Other than the Hawks losing that night, it was a stellar evening. Great views even from the... More

Having seen three different games at the Amalie Arena, i have not a single complaint to make about the venue. The staff, seating, atmosphere were all first class on each occasion. First visited in April 2014 to watch the Canadiens win two games against the Bolts in the Eastern Quarter finals of the Stanley Cup, came again to see a... More
