Eat Drink Enjoy
"What a great start to a concert! Thank you, great bar, friendly staff and a superb table with a great view of the audience coming in! 1st class! I'll be using it again"
Upgrade your concert experience by getting away from our concourse to relax and enjoy a wider selection of drinks served in glass and a more extensive menu before enjoying the show.
The View has a dedicated entrance in City Room (adjacent to our Box Office) and inside the Arena from the concourse (entrance opposite Block 107).
To ensure a relaxed start to your evening The View will open at 5.00pm and will close when the main act takes to the stage.
Sample menus are available from the downloads section of this page (subject to change).
