I have been to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast more times than I can remember and my impression has always been the same. This is an amazing concert venue and with regards to the view there is not a bad seat in the house However if you go to a Concert which relies on amplification then you will be sorely... More

We went to see the excellent Romesh Ranganathan and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Our complaint, which is the same every time we go to this venue is to do with the organisation or lack of it, in the small downstairs bar areas. The service is dreadfully slow, while some staff are just walking around telling the lengthy queue that there... More

Just over a mile from the Titanic Quarter and overlooking the River Lagan in central Belfast, the Waterfront Hall is a world-class entertainment and conference venue that, in no uncertain terms, reflects the regeneration of the city. Since opening in 1997, the center had seen more than five million visitors and now attracts top-musicians and performers from around the world... More

Modern architecture, unfortunately a new modern building has been build aside, by which the view on that modern theatre is somewhat narrowed.

I went to the Waterfront to see Paul Weller a while back, and it was the first visit there, and i was a little sceptical to see a band a such a new and clean venue. I was not disappointed!!!! A great venue to see a band, and I'm sure it would be great for any kind of event! I... More

We attended Jimmy Carr on Friday 11th November. The over all concert was brilliant and the smaller audience made it so much better. However upon entering we went to 'Bar 1' my boyfriend stood and qued for over 35 minutes to get a drink. Only to get to the front of the queue to be told no the bar is... More

Visited the Waterfront Hall for a major Dancing Competition and have never been to a more fitting venue. Having travelled the world to the different venues for competitions I can honestly say that this is the best venue by far. Staff are always smart, polite and very helpful and the venue itself is clean and well kept.
