Belfast Nightlife

  • Crown Bar

    Belfast Nightlife

    Probably Belfast’s best known pub and one that is owned by the National Trust. The restored Victorian interior is so extravagantly ornate that it is almost overpowering. It has decorative mirrors, etched glass, mosaic flooring and an ornate ceiling. The bar runs along the left hand side as you enter and around the rest of the pub are ten separate...

  • The Limelight

    Belfast Nightlife

    LIMELIGHT I'm publicly asking you 'WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON SEXUAL ASSAULT??????" On Saturday night I was cornered by two random men in the cloakroom area. When I told them to back off one of them spat on me and punched me on the back of the head when I tried to get away..... with such force I fell face first to the ground. I told the manager and...

  • The Kremlin

    Belfast Nightlife

    The Kremlin is the home of homosexuality in Belfast, and for a somewhat narrow minded city, you will not be dissapointed in here, especially if you drink from the furry cup. The Kremlin has three bars and a good sound system, if you don't mind young gay people half naked sniffing poppers, you shoul have a good time. The Kremlin is in a part of town...

  • The Parlour

    Belfast Nightlife

    A student bar, with awful service. Manager does not promote his own food offers, and refused to upgrade my meal to their better offer after spending over £50 on food alone. Toilets are rotten and rarely checked, with most toilet seats missing. Though music is good, pity about everything else. Monday and Saturday only decent nights, with very few...

  • City Centre

    Belfast Nightlife

    The bar was fire-bombed in 1991, since then the interior has been restored to its 1846 design. I spent my time in the saloon bar, but there are other options. Fibber Magee's hosts traditional Irish music, BT1 bar in the basement & a nightclub in the loft.

  • Apartment

    Belfast Nightlife

    The apartment is a botanic-inns owned operation so don't expect too much originality. It is however a place where the standards very rarely slip and if you order from the extensive cocktail list you won't be dissapointed. the apartment does food and coffees during the day, and at night its good place to pick up rish chicks or network with wannabe...

Drinks aren't cheap though, but it's a good place to top off a night. Unfortunately the dress code is pretty strict. But where as usually this would attract a clientele of wankers the...

    I've only been out once in Belfast, and that was to the Manhattan or as it's often called, the M Club. I didn't really think it was that great.

  • The Crown - A Belfast landmark

    Practically every guidebook on Belfast will mention the Crown, so I won't go into too much detail. Suffice to say, it's a nice cosy wooden bar and the local guys are *very* friendly ;-) and if you're lucky, they can be cute too! :) Casual, after-work crowd.

    We enjoyed Fibber Magees bar situated on the street level of Robinsons. We liked the Irish decorations and it was a warm and comfortable place to hang out after the cold and rainy days touring the city. We had to wait a long time before the band could get it together to start playing. We were hoping for traditional Irish music but they only played...

    There are several places to enjoy live music in Belfast, the girls I met in Laverys suggested I go to the Empire basement bar. The music started at around 10.30pm and the place was fairly packed.
