    I have never been to this place, but I think it contributes to the noise in Waterside on weekends.

    Dress Code: Advertisement says: "The ONLY Lighted (ala Saturday Night Fever ) Dance Floor in the Area. Tuesday, Friday and Saturday are the most popular Nights to come and Party.

    "Doors Open at 7:00 pm Daily. Tuesday is College Night... when the younger crowd comes to dance to Current and '90s Music, and Thursday is Ladies Night. Cover Charge begins at 7:00 pm Tuesdays... 9:00 pm Friday and Saturday. "

    Bar Norfolk: Night Time at Waterside

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food Court in Waterside

    Since I'm not into night time stuff much, I can only go by the brochure which advertises "No Theme - No Attitude - Just Bar"

    Dress Code: Description from a review:

    Located on the second floor of Waterside Marketplace, BAR plays a wide range of music from dance to the greatest hits of the 50s through today in its 6,000-square-feet of ..

    The two most recent reviews were:

    Terrible experience, other than the Octoberfest beer prices. This place is so cliche. If I want to see girls dancing and making out on the bar, then I will go to a strip club. The place is filthy, and the decor is tacky. Anyplace that serves martinis in a plastic cup has some serious issues.

    EMPIRE; tapas bar not STARWARS theme: EMPIRE; tapas bar not STARWARS theme

    The best little tapas spot for yummy food and martini's. Their menu is ever changing so you won't ever get bored of the same food. I love the decor and the atmosphere. It's a small but great place to meet friends or go on a date. you don't have to be dressed up to get in nor do you feel uncomfortable due to the attire of the staff. (the women have sexy yet non-slutty clothes on and the men are stylish.) i personally like to go there to start out an evening before a concert at the Norva or finish the evening with a sweet treat.

    Dress Code: wear what you want.

    Club Soda: If you want a great martini...

    by ThatGuyB Written Jan 16, 2003

    This is a simple martini bar, conviently located near MacArthur Center downtown. Look for it, the bartender was not only beautiful, but she could mix an excellent drink. We tried about 1/2 dozen martinis liked almost all of them, luckily our hotel was directly across the street.

  • If you have money, downtown is...

    by Jotenhjem Written Aug 26, 2002

    If you have money, downtown is the place. Either the Waterside mall, or any numerous clubs along Granby st. When you get bored with that, go to Portsmith via HRT ferry, ($.75) and check out their wide variety of clubs.
    My favorite hangout is Backstage Cafe, for it's music, atmosphere, and leather couches. Lots of snobby people, though.

    Dress Code: I've run around in a t-shirt and blue jeans, though people tend to sneer less and you get better service if you dress in slacks and a nice shirt.

    Crocodile Rocks: Dueling Pianos

    Waterside brochure

    This place apparently has two pianos and they do requests and jokes.

    I have not been, but it has all very good reviews on the Hampton Roads web site.
