We had the chance to visit one of the games, or better basketball events. They are always worth a visit especially if you are not familiar with sport events in the USA like us as we are from Europe. But be prepared to consider extra...More

Went to watch Miami heat here as part of my vacation, everything was flawlessly run, immaculately kept and everyone was smiling, happy and welcoming to guests. One of the most well run arenas I’ve had the pleasure of attending :)

In this space you will feels like part of the action, with all the noise and excitement of a live Miami Heat basketball game. The space is high and cozy, with the amenities you would expect from a very good sports facility.

Very easy access, good for children, clean, with a good variety of things to eat and drink. Went to a NBA game, and it was amazing!

Nice arena but the staff was no where around to show us where our seats were and we ended up having to find them for ourselves.
