Commonly called The Arsht Center, is Florida’s largest performing arts center and is located on Biscayne Boulevard in the Omni neighborhood of Downtown, Miami, Florida, United States. It is the second largest performing arts centers in the United States.

The Center was partly built on the grounds of a former Sears department store; it was an Art Deco building constructed in 1929, predating the Art Deco hotels on Ocean Drive. It was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1997 as Sears, Roebuck and Company Department Store. However, by 2001, the only surviving part of the original structure was a seven-story tower built by Sears, the space’s successor. The department store space itself had been demolished. It was decided to preserve the tower and incorporate it into the new performing arts center.

The Center is known as a presenter of world-class performances, an openly-accessible community resource, a source of education for children and adults, and a catalyst for economic growth in downtown Miami.

I went this past Thursday to watch SLAVA'S Snow Show and it was a true pleasure. The parking facilities were easily accessible with police directing traffic. Parking lot C is right across the street from the front entrance and costs only $15. Again crossing over is a breeze with police all around to escort and keep drivers and pedestrians safe. However if it's your preference there is also valet parking right in front of The main door section for $25. The building is easy to find, and easy to get around in. If you need assistance there's security and ushers all all over that are willing and able to help. They're knowledgeable and friendly, so don't be afraid to ask if help is needed. We had orchestra seating and we're able to access our seats quickly and easily. During intermission we enjoyed a couple of drinks and snacks from the vendors within the theatre. The prices are moderate to high depending on what you choose. Overall I have a great time every time I watch a show at this theatre!

Always enjoy Arsht Center. Use parking lot c which is very convenient. Seating was fine. What was disappointing was the performance. Saw Diana Ross and first half of show was very good but unfortunately she ran out of steam about halfway to two thirds her performance, which was very short to begin with. She performed for about 1 Hour 15 minutes. Way too short especially for price of tickets. Overall was rather disappointed.

Purchasing tickets seems like they went out of their way to make it difficult and unpleasant. First, I was not able to select any seats, just randomly allocated them, and couldn't see where they were until the second of the five pages. But to understand what seats you were given, you needed to memorise the seating chart as that's only displayed on the first page where you're telling them how many tickets you want. To go back you have to remove the tickets from your cart and start the process over. I also had to create an account purely to buy tickets to this one event, and was asked for a donation on one of the five pages. When they're already charging a 12% fee for tickets asking for more money is a bit rich. You can select to pick up tickets from the box office, but only the day of, resigning yourself to queues. You can only mail tickets to within 90 miles of the venue. But it's not like USPS charges by the mile, so why have this restriction? Although they don't tell you this on the website, I found out when I called their box office which is only open for twenty hours a week. If I'd had any other option for seeing the show I wanted to, I would have taken it.

Saw Slava's snow show and thought the venue was great. I had a pocket knife on me and they allowed me to check it. Drinks were reasonable price. Everything was clean and the sound system was awesome.

Every time I come here I have a great experience. Great location and transportation options (I particularly take the metromover), parking options including valet. Friendly and helpful ushers. All in all a very nice place to enjoy the performing arts!
