“Excellent For Heat Games and Concerts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a first class venue. Lots of Food and drinks available, Bathrooms are kept nice and clean, seats are comfortable. Several exclusive "clubs" with access to very high end amenities. Have been to many Heat games, and concerts, all events have been first class. The only downside has been security.....sometimes they are a little overbearing......but maybe thats how they have to be????? Most of the security i have had to deal with have been acceptable, but i have seen many of them get ugly with guests for no real reason......so dont give them an excuse to get ugly.

Valet parking is available on the north side of the building, near gate 4, turn off biscayne on 8th street, was $40 last time i was there, or you can park across the street for about $50. Lots of less expensive parking is available in parking lots on the streets west of the arena. You will see attendants waving you into the lots. The surrounding area gets questionable the later it gets, so saving a few dollars on parking might not be the best choice for everyone.

If this review helps your planning, please leave me a helpful vote......ENJOY

“Sensation - Ocean of White”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I went to the Sensation - Ocean of White event at the American Airlines Arena. The event was mind-blowing, but the arena ran out of water part way through, and the drinks were pretty expensive. Plus, they threw out MOST people's cigarettes upon entering even though they had designated areas on outside balconies for smoking!!

“Beautiful Arena in the heart of Biscayne Blvd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

There's nothing like watching the Miami Heat live with a great crowd in beautiful Miami, Florida! The arena sits waterside with a great marketplace next door for dining, shopping and people watching. It's always clean and you can definitely feel the electricity inside and outside from the fans as our Heat are once again World Champions! It also helps having the best player in the NBA, Lebron James as our main attraction so don't forget fans, bring those "white hot" shirts to the game and have a great time!
