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.
