Go Heat!

It’s been a long road to the finals for the Miami Heat, but once again LeBron, Wade, Bosh and crew have proven they’ve got game. Whether they will come out victorious again this year is anyone’s guess, but what’s certain is that we’ll be watching. And forget your couch! Here are five champion-worthy venues where you can root for the home team.

The Heat is on at Hyde at the American Airlines Arena.

Hyde at the American Airlines Arena
The American Airlines Arena has a first-class team, coaches, dancers and VIP lounge, of course. Open during Miami games home and away, your night at Hyde can begin with dinner and end with dancing all in the same spot. Best part? You can enjoy yourself with or without a ticket to the game. It’s the best way to be a part of the Heat experience without the four-figure stub price. Celebrity patrons (usually) included. 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, 33132, 786.777.1000, aaarena.com/HYDE

Radio Bar
From pop-up bar to South Beach favorite in just a few short months, Radio has made quite a name for itself since becoming a permanent fixture. To celebrate all that is Heat, the venue is offering five-for-$20 PBR buckets and five-for-$25 Corona and Heineken buckets—as well as endless bowls of fresh popcorn and halftime entertainment games including pool and jumbo Jenga. If you call yourself a local—with the ID to prove it—your entire bill is 10 percent off. 814 First St., Miami Beach, 305.397.8382, radiosouthbeach.com

Tongue & Cheek
Chef Jamie DeRosa explains his cuisine at Tongue & Cheek as “simple yet sophisticated.” To celebrate our hometown heroes making the finals, he’s sticking by that theme. On game days, the restaurant is extending its happy hour menu to include $4 beers, $8 cocktails and $7 bar snacks. 431 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305.704.2900, tandcmiami.com

HaVen
Do you take your TV watching seriously? HaVen prides itself on its 100-foot wraparound video walls featuring state-of-the-art surround sound. For every game, the Lincoln Road hotspot offers specially priced craft cocktails by mixologist Isaac Grillo and global small plates by Executive Chef Todd Erickson—perfect for sharing in between high-fives. 1237 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305.987.8885, havenlounge.com

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ
Brother Jimmy’s takes three things very seriously: beer, barbecue and basketball. With tons of TVs, drink specials and wings that “bring the South to your mouth,” it’s the perfect spot to watch the Dream Team make Miami’s victory dreams come true. 900 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786.360.3650, brotherjimmys.com
