I was just recently in Amalie Arena for a conference. Wonderful place for a conference, but because of the Ice rink below the flooring they added, made it pretty chilling. Please make sure you take a jacket, or sweater. Other then that it was a very nice arena, and if you ever get the chance to visit, please do.

Amalie Arena was amazing when we had conference in Feb 2017! The lines to get into the Arena even with security and metal detectors were very reasonable. I utilized the guest services counter to ask about food vendors and the staff were very helpful! Great experience!

The Amalie Arena is great! Easy to find your way around and plenty of eats. I am not sure if there are any restaurants per se, but lots of kiosk type venders selling the usual fare. Food is good, in general. The peanuts and cotton candy were perfect for the circus. It has the perfect "small town arena" feel to... More

Visited the arena for the first time at the Tampa Hockey Day event. It is impressive and clean, BUT, it is PRICEY, to the point where many people who would otherwise attend events there simply don't.

This is one of the best venues for hockey you will ever visit. Good location. Plenty of parking. Wide concourse inside with many food choices. Good sight lines. There seems to always be something happening in the plaza outside before the game. Best place to sit is terrace level in the corner, rows A-E. only drawback: in the terrace (upper)... More

Construction in this area made it difficult to secure parking. The arena provides comfortable seating and acoustics, but, sorely missing was the ability to see the band on large display screens! I have not been to a venue that didn't provide this service in the last thirty years! For $200 tickets, I would have expected to be able to see... More

The arena is set up well for all seats to have a view of stage. The seating seems somewhat steep, could be a problem for drinkers. Be prepared to spend outrageous prices for food and drink!! $6.50 for a bottle of soda, they take the cap from you, too!
