It was an awesome concert. But the seats are very uncomfortable and the sound was not the best. Of course, it’s mainly used for sports, but still, they could do better with better seats.

I really loved the location of this arena. Right by the water. Good (but busy) dining nearby. Enjoyed a walk along the water after dinner and before the game. Would look forward to visiting again. BTW-absolutely loved the pipe organ and the LIGHTNING!

All seats are great for viewing and I was close enough to really see the game and be able to follow it. If you want excitement this is the place with it especially when a goal is scored by the Lightning.

The show was great but the price of a beer is ridiculous. I think it was $27 for 2 beers. I probably won’t return.

Amalie Arena is a superb venue to see the hometown Tampa Bay Lightning. The pregame artificial lightning is a sight to behold. You will pay a steep price for lower-level seats, but it is worth it. Upper-level seats are usually in the $25-40 range, and...More

The arena is in downtown Tampa so only condos are nearby. Harbor Island is very close but I’m not sure you’ll find a rental there. If you want to stay somewhat close- check Temple Terrace or around USF. Don’t stay in Ybor... More

From what I can recall, you'll be a little behind the stage on the performers' right hand side. While we have never sat there, it looks like you can get a great view and are certainly closer than some of the other seating... More
