AMALIE Arena consistently ranks among the very best venues in the United States
AMALIE Arena hosts the biggest names in entertainment and entertains over 1.5 million annual patrons. Featuring acts for all ages, AMALIE has welcomed: Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Katy Perry, Disney on Ice, the Women’s Final Four and Men’s Frozen Four.
Located in the popular Water Street district of downtown Tampa, the 670,000 square foot Amalie Arena, home of the three-time Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning, hosts over 200 events per year with over 2 million guests. Our mission is to provide world-class entertainment for sports fans and music enthusiasts alike.
$100 million worth of renovations has been invested to improve the facility in the past eight years. These include an expanded Star Performer Room with the addition of a full bath for performers, including a permanent food and beverage location within the room, and a makeup area.
Boasting unique features like lightning-throwing Tesla coils, the 11,000 square-foot Budweiser Biergarten with incredible views of the city and a massive five-manual, 105-rank digital pipe organ, AMALIE Arena consistently ranks among the very best venues in the United States.
The venue opened in 1996 and became AMALIE Arena in September 2014 when the family-owned, Tampa Bay-based AMALIE Oil Company elected to partner with Vinik and the Lightning.
