American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat basketball franchise, officially got into the restaurant and event business on Jan. 25, when it held a private party to debut 601, an 11,500-sf multipurpose space that offers fans and patrons a la carte dining, tapas, specialty drinks, and a variety of craft beers.

601 (the number of the arena’s address, 601 Biscayne Boulevard) fills a space that had been vacant since June 2014, when Gloria and Emilio Estaban closed Bongos Cuban Café. The couple had leased that space for 15 years.
