“A wonderful venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Holds 3000 audience- so quite an intimate venue with great acoustics. Service at the bar is fast and efficient. Ushers very friendly and also efficient.

“Average Eels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

I called in to see what art is on show. The upper gallery was empty. Phooey. On the main stairs is an installation by Rita Duffy on the wall - called Shoal. It has lots of glass tubes, lit from the inside, wriggling out of the wall, like they're eels. Hmm. Not sure it works. There are phrases written among them. They're so transparent that you're distracted by the lines where the walls meet the ceiling. One eel is missing. The venue has banners hanging in front of the piece, blocking the view from below. There are some other works permanently on show. Outside I do love a bronze piece called Sheep on the Road. It's forever forlornly stuck beside a building site.

“Best music venue in Belfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

If live music, shows, is your thing, the Waterfront Hall is the best.
Close to car parks and Hilton Hotel and a nice riverside setting.
No bad seats in the house and very modern in a beautiful round building.
