The waterfront is a great place to come on a Friday if you are a student and want to have a good time! Cheap drinks and cheap entry. They do however play the same music every week, but does that really matter when you're drunk...More

Great venue we watched the Doors tribute band who were totally amazing. What you would expect from this sort of venue, sticky floors, dark and dingy but it all adds to the atmosphere!

I went here last night with my other half for the doors tribute band. Place was small enough to get an atmosphere but big enough so you don't feel like a sardine. The staff were all friendly and efficient. Will go again

Went to the Waterfront last night for the Saturday meltdown night looking forward to some indie, pop and rock music. Whilst the likes of Blink182 and The Smiths were played, we were very disappointed to find that around half the music was rap and R'n'B...More

Embrace and Starsailor in the same week, and a brilliant small venue. Having seen bands at the o2 and Wembley, it's just great to get to a 300 people maximum gig. Part of the UEA scene, it's Well worth the effort.

Went here to see Terrorvision and their support act Tax The Heat. Great smallish venue so even on a Monday night it felt heaving and made the bands' request to pretend it was a Friday night easy enough to achieve. Great sound, so loud my...More

I just love this place, there is always something on. The variety of acts are good and we've seen many good bands play here. The garden area out of the back by the river is a good place to relax & cool down after an...More

Hi, When we saw Sophie EB it was standing only. There are seating areas in the Waterfront but not sure if they are used just for club nights.
Is there car parking close to the venue?
