“Great venue for a gig, bring lots of cash though!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

The arena is a stroll from the city shops and has the trappings of the Albert Dock immediately next to it if you fancy a meal and a few drinks.
Toilet facilities are stretched at time, so it's best to nip out near the end of a song, or you'll be queueing for some time. The bars are also have ridiculously long queues and are expensive, but you're stuck, so what can you do. Getting out after the event is no problem, but we've found it easier to get the train to central station and walk down instead of getting stuck in the rip off adjacent car park post event.

“An iconic spot for the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

What a fantastic building - an arena for concerts and gigs and a convention centre for conferences, meetings, company events and tonnes of other activities. It's set on the Liverpool Waterfront and is a really impressive building. Liverpool Wheel and Albert Dock just next door.

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

The arena looks impressive on the outside, but as I was sat at the back, I felt very far away and the sound system was awful with an awful view and the stewards are pointless and very unhelpful. The drinks were too expensive and getting to the arena was a hassle, I didn't enjoy the event one bit, not helped by the man in front exchanging words with me rather obnoxiously, I nearly lost my temper, I cannot stand rude people who swear at other people, especially women, so Liverpool you need to target attracting a better class of people to your events, you've put me off ever returning to the echo arena, the city centre of Liverpool is nice though.

“Bad acoustics”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Went to the Eagles gig at the end of June. Has the most expensive tickets in the house and was constantly bothered by the echo of the main PA system coming off the back of the arena (despite that area being full of people). I would not go back for a music gig.
