The Boardwalk nightclub was located on Little Peter Street in Manchester, England. This small club, owned by Colin Sinclair, was a popular live music venue in the late 1980s and early 1990s where bands such as Oasis made their live debuts.
Along with other clubs like the Haçienda, and the International, the Boardwalk provided an important live venue for many local bands.
The Man From Delmonte, the Stone Roses, the Charlatans, and James, were amongst the many Manchester bands that appeared frequently at the Boardwalk before acquiring international recognition or disappearing into obscurity. The venue also saw a variety of other acts including Sonic Youth, Chumbawamba and Bob Mould.
In later years, until the club closed, former Haçienda DJ Dave Haslam played the regular Yellow night at the Boardwalk. Dave subsequently wrote a book about the Manchester music scene at the time, Manchester, England; ISBN 1841151467.
The Boardwalk is also a bar/nightclub based on the corner of Snig Hill and Bank Street, Sheffield. The venue plays host to many up-and-coming home-grown bands, as well as smaller touring bands and cover acts.Template:Music-venue-stub
