“One of the best places to visit in Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Tucked into Miami’s contemporary skyline is an enchanting Mediterranean courtyard with shimmering stars and golden balconies. Majestic turrets and towers suggest another era when performances were events, and grand theaters provided a dreamlike escape from the modern world.

The Olympia Theater at Gusman Center is not just a “venue” – it’s is the jewel of South Florida arts and entertainment facilities, affording South Florida’s diverse community and its international guests a unique cultural experience that defies comparison.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

What a fabulous theatre. The show I went to see was Tommy Emmanuel and Martin Taylor and the sound was excellent. Inside, around the stage was decorated as a baroque/Mediterranean style. The location is good on Flagler Street, with car parks near by. I was in town at 3pm and used a car lot on 2 Street, had something to eat, then went back to move my car before closing at 10pm. There is a garage opposite the lot for $1 per hour after 6pm.No problem walking back to the garage after the show at 11pm.

Thanks for your review of the Olympia Theater. We're glad you enjoyed Tommy Emmanuel and Martin Taylor - what a great night and a fun crowd!

We also offer valet service ($15) across the street at 145 E. Flagler St. - that's the max daily rate so you can arrive early, walk around, grab something to eat, and pick your car up after the show.

Hope to see you again at the Olympia.
