AmericanAirlines Arena’s East Plaza

The 23,000 square foot outdoor space located on the east side of the Arena, provides a stunning view of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline.  The multi-faceted venue takes all the excitement of a HEAT game or Arena event and brings it outdoors.  HEAT Fans are encouraged to arrive early and enter Gates 5 & 6 to enjoy expertly crafted cocktails and spirits at the BACARDÍ Bar, food from local eateries Pincho Factory and Philly Cheesesteaks, live music and/or entertainment, a variety of seating options and three The Miami HEAT Store retail kiosks.  For select Arena events, guests can enjoy a pre-concert party on the plaza with drinks and music, in a club-like setting.  The East Plaza can also be customized for Special Events, Private Concerts or Group Dining on game and event days. Fans can use the complimentary high-speed WiFi to stay connected, post on social media or stream their favorite entertainment on the go.


Fans can enjoy complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi Internet access to stay connected on their mobile devices, post on social media sites or stream their favorite entertainment on the go. A live feed of HEAT games and Plaza entertainment will be displayed on a high definition, 16’ x 9’ LED video board.

An elegant installation with a visually appealing design, the East Plaza’s roof is also an energy efficient solar array and adds a modern architectural flair to the 16-year-old arena. The solar array is dotted throughout with 14 translucent solar panels, which utilize Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solar technology allowing for the offset of energy consumption. In addition, most of the all-weather seating (lounge chairs, sofa seating, coffee and side tables, and picnic tables and benches) on the Xfinity East Plaza is environmentally sustainable having been made from both 80% recycled aluminum and 100% recycled plastic—the equivalent of 24,104 milk jugs.

The unveiling of the East Plaza is the latest example of The HEAT Group’s commitment to environmentally sound principles and practices. In January 2015, AmericanAirlines Arena became the first sports and entertainment facility in the world to receive LEED Gold recertification cementing its status as an international leader in operational sustainability. LEED is the U.S. Green Building Council’s leading rating system for designing, constructing and operating the world’s greenest, most energy-efficient, and highest performing buildings.

The venue also boast a 720 square foot, bi-level performance stage outfitted with unique LED lighting as well as a special effects lighting truss and a 70,000-watt audio system. Five NanoLumens—360-degree LED cylinder technology—deliver spectacularly clear imagery into the Plaza creating an eye-catching visual environment.



The Xfinity East Plaza is proud to host the BACARDÍ Concert Series, a variety of live entertainment acts, during pre-game, halftime and post-game.
