The Adrienne Arsht Center
The Arsht Center is Florida’s largest performing arts center and one of the biggest in the United States, with three main venues and an outdoor plaza space. The impressive complex opened in 2006 but still has a touch of history: a part of the 1929 Sears, Roebuck & Co. Art Deco tower is prominently displayed, which predates the Art Deco architecture found in South Beach. The Arsht Center offers many free, community-based performances and programmed series including the Flamenco Festival and its concert series “Live at Knight,” with touring acts and performances year-round.
The complex is located on Biscayne Boulevard just a mile north from YVE Hotel Miami. Both parking and valet parking at the Arsht Center are painless, however, public transportation is also readily available. Visitors can catch the Metromover train, which runs until midnight, giving guests ample time to get back after an evening show. Catch the electrically-powered transit from College Bayside Station, located on NE 3rd Street (from YVE Hotel, take a left on Biscayne Bay, then another left on NE 3rd). Take the Metromover five stops until you reach the Adrienne Arsht Center station. Head west on NE 15th Street and take a left on Biscayne Bay Blvd. The Arsht Center is less than two blocks down on the right.
