This place is absolutely gorgeous! Went to see the Dirty Dancing show & it was awesome. Bathrooms were close by & clean. Didn't wait long to get a drink at the bars. Some bars only take cash & at the main bar takes credit cards. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Good experience! 👍

I was treated to a performance of The Nutcracker this Christmas at the Arsht Center. The venue is beautiful and is definitely a welcome addition to downtown Miami. The theater is well-thought out. All the seats, no matter where you're seated, seem to have a good view of the stage. Food is pricey, and depending on the ballet or performance... More

Beautiful architecture, great service but the drinks and food sold there are way too expensive! Also for the musical that we watched (Dirty Dancing) the volume was good during the songs but a bit low to understand the speeches from the third tier where we had our seats.

We were excited to get tickets for the Louis CK comedy show here at the center last week.... our seats wound up being on the fourth level. What I want to say is the acoustics are so bad if you're on that fourth level especially towards the rear of the auditoriumyou should not waste your money. It is so difficult... More

For many decades, Miami had to suffer with the ancient Dade County Auditorium for operas, plays, concerts, etc. putting us officially into hick town, bush league status. Then they finally built this beautiful, ample, state of the art facility that was long overdue. The seating, acoustics, stage, lighting etc. are all top notch. The concessions are also nice, not too... More

Wonderful shows and events in a top of the line venue. Safe and secure. Had prepaid parking in Lot C. Not hard to find. Getting out was a somewhat difficult. No one guiding the exit of traffic so it took some time to get out. But right on to the highway from there!

Right off I-95 but parking is $15. Four levels of balconies. They have large screen that is helpful. Excellent sound system. Food is expensive, including water!

Convenient to purchase tickets online & present electronic tickets upon arrival. I enjoyed the freedom to choose our seats. Unfortunately, I was unable to purchase parking with our performance tickets which has never happened before. Therefore, we used a credit card to purchase parking @ parking meter. We recommend for visitors to bring plenty of cash for affordable parking. There... More

First time to this performing arts center and it was a delightful experience. Very nice staff and very convenient pre-paid parking across from the center itself. Only drawback was seats just a little uncomfortable but other than that gorgeous facility and great setting. Will be back!!!!
