MIAMI GARDENS — The Miami Dolphins unveiled their latest phase of a $500-million plus renovation at Hard Rock Stadium on Aug. 8.
Privately funded by Dolphins and stadium owner Stephen Ross, the phase III renovations include a new partnership with Aston Martin Residences, new food and beverage offerings, luxury and party spaces and redesigned landscaping and parking.
The renovation brought additional luxury to the midsection of the stadium, renovating the BankUnited Club Level. Hard Rock Stadium’s 147 suites were completely renovated, with the suites varying in size from 10 to 50 seats with air conditioning and multi-feed sound systems, refrigerators, ice-makers and private telephone services.
Unveiled in the latest phase, Hard Rock Stadium features theatre boxes on the BankUnited Club Level. These 4 to 6 person individual boxes are located in a shared suite environment with inclusive food and beverage. Hard Rock Stadium also debuted four new corner clubs – including the new UHealth, University of Miami Health System Cornerstone Club – giving suite members access to the corner’s interior space and bar.
The latest renovations brought new party terraces on the 300 level of Hard Rock Stadium. These party terraces have a bar that services guests on the concourse, as well as a double-sided bar with awesome views of the field. Each corner includes two semi-private spaces that each can hold up to 100 people – creating a new experience for a total of 800 guests per event. The Dolphins additionally have made a commitment to donate a party terrace of 100 military tickets each game to local U.S. troops.
Throughout phase III of the renovation, the exterior of the facility saw enhancements in the redesign of the parking lots and landscaping bringing nearly 37,000 new trees and shrubs.
Celebrity chef David Chang will make his first foray into Florida with the debut of Fuku at the venue. Hard Rock Stadium also will serve new offerings from Coyo Taco, Los Ranchos, Jackson Soul Food, O-B House and Shorty’s BBQ.
In 2017, Hard Rock Stadium will introduce three additional premium craft offerings within the Tap Rooms on the north and south sides of the 100 level at the stadium. These selections are in addition to 16 Florida craft selections in bottles, along with another 18 domestic craft brews, including two Gluten-free craft beers.
