Dolphins add new seating, food vendors and beverage options at Hard Rock Stadium

The Miami Dolphins completed Phase III of a privately funded $500 million renovations at the Hard Rock Stadium funded by owner Stephen Ross. The latest renovations include an upgrade to the BankUnited Club Level as well as 147 suites to enhance the fan experience.

Hard Rock Stadium will also have four new corner clubs which include UHealth and the University of Miami Health System Cornerstone club. Upgrades to the stadium also include party terraces on the 300 level.

There are also new food and drink offerings at the ever-evolving Hard Rock Stadium. Coyo Taco, Los Ranchos, Fuku, Jackson Soul Food, O-B House, Shorty’s BBQ, Grown, Shula Burger and Centerplate are all first-year vendors handpicked to bring guests a taste of Miami at each event.

The Dolphins currently have 18 domestic craft brews on hand but they are now adding three new seasonal premium craft beverages that will rotate throughout the year. The new beverages can be found on the north and south sides of the 100 level.

The stadium upgrades allowed Hard Rock Stadium to become the venue of choice for last month’s El Classico which featured word renowned Spanish soccer teams Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Hard Rock Stadium will also host the Super Bowl in 2020.

Stephen Ross once said that he’d like for Hard Rock Stadium to become a “global entertainment destination.” It appears that with the completion of Phase III, he is well on his way to seeing his vision come to life.
