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.

Big, beautiful establishment. Courteous staff. Valet parking available. Private parking available and limited off-street parking also. Close to expressway. Security top notch inside and out. Plenty of shows and packages available. Sign up for promotional events.

Earlier this month I watched the Miami City Ballet's performance of George Balanchine's 'The Nutcracker'. The ballet was held at the Ziff Opera and Ballet House and the venue was absolutely stunning. The lobby area outside of the theater was beautiful. The inside of the theater was impressive and so clean. I would definitely consider booking tickets for future events at this venue.

Beautiful venue. The theatre was clean and the building was magnificent. I watched the Miami City Ballet's performance of the Nutcracker here. Would definitely return to see another performance.

I absolutely enjoy going to the Adrienne Arsht Center. The performances that we have an opportunity to see now are world class. Last night was perhaps the best piano concert I have ever experienced. Olga Kern played Tchaikovsky’s 1st piano concerto magnificently accompanied by the National Orchestra of Ukraine. Awesome

The architecture and lighting are great in this building. The layout of the building is very nice. Parking is tough, but there is some public transportation near there. The theater has a great design, and is good with acoustics. It’s great to see a show here. I highly recommend it.
