MIAMI (CBSMiami) – What’s behind the door of suite 241 at the American Airlines Arena? It’s the all-new VIP Hyde Suite, branded after the popular nightclub downstairs.

CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo got an exclusive tour of the 32-person suite from Hyde General Manager Richard Post.

“We wanted to take the success from the lounge downstairs and bring it to a suite experience where we can actually watch the game. So we included our brand up here. We brought in our waitresses, our bartenders—it’s a different experience. It’s a private bar and a different setting,” said Post.

Wrapped in luxe wall coverings, accented by Hyde’s branded furniture, this party suite is all about watching the game or concert in high-style.

“You come over here where you can sit down, maybe before the game, and you can do bottle service…” said Post. “The suite opens an hour before so come in watch a football game on TV and relax,” said Post.

From the suite, you have a bird’s eye view of the court.

“These are premium seats,” said Post. “Eighteen seats and it doesn’t get much better than this,” said Post.

After the games, guests can continue the party with VIP access to Hyde Nightclub downstairs. The cost to buy-out the suite, Post says, varies, “depends on the game. The games are at levels one, two and three in importance. They start at $12,000 and go up to $28,000 per game.” Those looking for a VIP playoff experience will likely pay up to three times the regular season game price.

For a solo VIP experience, Post says sometimes single tickets will be available for purchase when the suite is not completely bought-out.

“We release the suites 24-hours in advance. If we haven’t sold in a buyout, then we sell individual tickets. The price is $250 to $850 per ticket,” Post said.

The Hyde Suite is almost completely booked through April—so if you want to party like a player—you must move fast.
