Ready to cheer on your team(s)?Here are our picks for best places to catch the games:

cheering fans.img_assist_custom-480x270American Airlines Arena 601 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

When the Miami HEAT play at home there is no hotter ticket in town. The highest prices range around $5,000 per ticket or you can snag one for the low price of a few hundred bucks. But even when the HEAT are winning elsewhere the AAA is still their house. Loyal fans can pack the family home to cheer on their boys for a mere $2.

Hoops 900 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

Two important stats: 3 full bars and 204 televisions. Plus it’s right across the street from the Arena.

Will Call 700 NE Second Avenue, Miami

Brand new bar just a couple of blocks from the American Airlines Arena with a 24 hour liquor license, an outdoor deck, and a new blues series.

Burger and Beer 900 South Miami Avenue, # 130, Miami

We’re suckers for a well-designed bar and gourmet eats. Throw in specials like $2.50 on domestic drafts and we’re in.

Brickell Irish Pub 1451 South Miami Avenue, Miami

Brickell seems to be the home of the Irish bars in Miami. Fortunately for soccer and basketball fans this month they can enjoy some of the world’s top athletes during lunch time soccer and night time baskbetall games.
