I can't believe I haven't been to the Adrienne Arsht Center before, I have to say I was very pleased with my visit on a Sunday afternoon. There is plenty of parking lots available around the building and valet too, but you will end up spending at least about $15+ just in parking. Same deal goes for snacks and drinks which are overpriced incredibly high. As for the entertainment, seating, staff and the show itself... this is an incredible venue! You have a perfect view of the stage from just about anywhere, so if you're worried about seating, no worries! The building and the lobby is designed in a modern look, but the indoor and stage set up has an old fashion theme set up which I thought was really cool. I will definitely plan a visit again soon, I will probably take an Uber or Lyft to avoid the parking trouble though.

Weird experience today! I got a 3rd degree at WC when I picked up my ticket. RULES ARE your name has to be on the list to pick up, although I am a season ticket holder and changed my ticket to Sat. mat of Chicago. I had the voided ticket but that wasn't adequate. I had to have a confirmation from the person who ordered the season prescription who is out of the country! I was told the person who told me I was 'all set' when I phoned the box office 5 days ago was NEW. A little courtesy would have been appreciated. I got my ticket with a line of people waiting.

The Arsht Center is really beautiful. We have enjoyed going there to see the Miami City Ballet a couple of times since we moved to Miami. I'm giving four stars due to the upper balcony seats which seem a mile from the stage, but overall, the facility is very comfortable and a great place to enjoy an evening. I’m updating this review (May 2018) in light of the Arsht Center’s recent decision to bring the extremely disgusting Kathy Griffin to its stage in September for her “comedy” tour. This vile woman and her severed head photo (which she apologized for but has since retracted the apology) should earn her a lifetime of shame, not an appearance in a facility as beautiful as the Arsht. Shame on the Arsht Center for showcasing her.

This venue is fantastic. The Adrienne Arsht Center host a variety of events that is suitable for everyone. Ticket prices are reasonable and the season membership is a must if your are a frequent visitor. Go to the website to find out what productions are in the calendar.

Great lovely building, Very expensive to eat and have cocktails at the lobby bars but the restaurant is better. They have a lot of upper crust clientele and they need to remember that the rest of us enjoy shows too and would patronize those bars more if they got real with the pricing. A little too much security if you ask me. It's really nicely done, beautifully designed. If you go to the opera, you can't see the subtitles if you sit in the first few rows without getting a cricked neck. I think the designers really didn't think about that. Nevertheless, a classy building and I'll be going there again and again! All the staff is very courteous but need to lighten up a bit. I felt like they were more concerned about getting you in your correct seat than acknowledging you were out for the night to enjoy yourself.
