Riverside Entertainment Venue Finally Opens In Brickell, With Thousands Attending Opening

Riverside – an entertainment venue on the Miami River – opened in Brickell over the weekend.

Videos uploaded to social media showed that there appeared to be thousands of people at a Super Bowl party held there yesterday. Total capacity is around 2,000.

In total, there is 120,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including multiple eateries and a brewery.

The project also includes the planting of 120 trees.

Riverside includes a new expansion of Miami’s public riverwalk now permanently open to the public. However, the riverwalk remains disjointed, with no connection to the west and a short connection to the east that is eventually blocked.

While the new riverwalk is permanent, Riverside itself will only be temporarily in place for three years. The valuable land is expected to have a permanent development at some point in the future.

What an excellent idea for land banking, I wish them prosperity! Hopefully they expand to the lots to the west all the way to the Underline and American Social.

FANTASTIC addition to Brickell!!!! I went to visit With my Wife and 8 year old Doughter on Sunday during the day and couldn’t believe how packed it was. Great ambiance for families to hang out! I stood in line a bit longer than I’d like to, but I understand it was their FIRST day And they were slammed, so they get a pass from me. I will be back next weekend and see how they are doing and if they’ve adjusted.

OVERALL A GREAT PLACE! I totally recommend it!!!!

Yeah it was packed, it was Superbowl weekend!

It’ll be interesting to see how it’s doing six months from now.

Why plant so many mature trees if they’re going to be ripped out the ground in three years. Unless the new development designs the future building around it

The price of this land right now is upward of somewhere in about the 110 to 130 million dollar range… much too expensive to just leave something this plain with some trees on it.

This should definitely be permanent, brings a lot of life to the area, hope they can work out a deal

Please.. maybe you want the city or county to spend over 50 million dollars of the taxpayers money for this land just to keep this little dinky BS, but I don’t.

Unfortunately, it will probably eventually end up in Doral or Miramar.
