“Great Arena”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I loved the arena, it is a truly beautiful and a very functional building. My issue is with the very difficult time we had getting a taxi after the Miami Heat game. It is no problem getting dropped off right in front of the arena before a game but that street is reserved for limos only after the game. One has to walk several blocks and get really lucky to find an empty cab.

My other issue is that the Heat lost to Golden State.

“Pittbull Rocked New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I love the arena. It is well lit and staffed with helpful attendants. There many different seating choices for sporting events, concerts, the circus and other special events. The only down side is the traffic which can bottleneck leaving the city.

“Amazing night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Went and saw the Miami Heat play back in April here. The main purpose of my trip to Miami from the UK. Being a huge Basketball fan and Heat fan it was perfect.

Picked up tickets pretty easily through a re-sale website. Saw the last game of the regular season and the first game of the playoffs.

Atmosphere was amazing. The Basketball was even better. Definitely worth a trip to the AAA
