Shepards Wharf - Next to the chain ferry this smaller venue has acoustic music and cocktails along with the 151 club from Chelsea. 

Cowes Yacht Haven - The main arena with the largest beer tent, main music stage and a range of great eateries.

The Parade - Next to the water and now called 'the village' it has two waterfront bars alongside places to grab a bite to eat.
