I went to see the Carl Palmer ELP Legacy show "Tribute to Keith Emerson" there and the staff were amazing! the Guzman is just amazing with such spectacular architectural detail and the acoustics were phenomenal. It is like steeping back in to the Golden Age of Theatre! Not a lot of places eat nearby, so eat before heading over there.....

Awesome venue that is both historic and professional managed. Only grip is they charge $10 for a glass of beer, wine, etc.

I love to come here for all the great festivals Miami has to offer. Film Festival, Jazz Festival, you name it. All them were amazing. I had the opportunity to see Monica Bellucci in person on an interview!

The first time I went there I swore I would never return because of the seating. I ended up there again with friends not realizing the event we booked was there. The seats are atrocious, they are tiny and made me feel trapped. I go to many events and arenas and I have never felt like this before. They need... More

If there is a show that you want to see playing at the Olympia don't hesitate to go. The architecture is beautiful and well worth preserving. Parking can be a bit chaotic. So it's best to park at one of the city garages and walk or valet. It's worth a visit!

Went to see my nephew's concert. What an amazing place. The cheapest ticket is $28. But there the sound is not the best. We later moved to a better location. The hallways are unreal. The place reminds me an Italian opera. Highly recommended!!!

Attended the Krafwerk concert with my husband. It was our fist time at the Olympia Theater. The valet parking was not expensive and the gentleman who took our car was very cordial. Once you step in the theater you feel transported into a different era. It is truly beautiful in there. The staff at the bar was also very pleasant.... More

Really beautiful theater. Great atmosphere, easy to get to, great inexpensive valet parking. I would agree with a previous reviewer in noting that pit seats left a little to be desired. Nobody sat next to me, so it was comfortable, but might have been tight otherwise. I saw Sufjan Stevens, and the cozy and beautiful theater complimented his perfection nicely.
