Northern Ireland 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...

  • The Crown

    Belfast Nightlife

    This pub is a Belfast icon, I had heard alot about the Crown before I even got to Belfast! It really just oozes character and history. The pub is very busy so if you want a standing room spot, get there early.

  • 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...

  • La Lea

    Belfast Nightlife

    This place is marketed as an exclusive club, but I found it to be very relaxed and enjoyable inside. They get some good DJs on and the cocktails are very yummy!! 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...

  • 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.

    Thsi is a great place to come if you like to dance and mix with all sorts of people. In this place anything goes, but i must say it must be contender for worst toilets in belfast. It has 4 floors of complete madness which play diffrent types of music from house music to hip hop. It is a very popular place because it stays open later than usual. I...

The deco is fantasic with walls and ceiling being plastered with memorabilia from sixties, seventies, eighties pop and rock musicians and hero's.

  • Ormeau Road

    Belfast Nightlife

    Not a typical tourist area but worth a crawl if you want to see a different side to belfast outside city centre (2miles). Few good bars - Pavilion (known as Big House- good sports bar) and Errigle.(both mixed religion!) and some restarants - check out graffitti and L'Etoile(nice french restaurant BYO). Niteclub and food in Mercury and posh...

  • M Club

    Belfast Nightlife

    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. There's far better places further North of Ireland where I live, but it was nice to go somewhere different and the music was good. I even got to see Tom from Big Brother who was there that night, although...

  • Lavery's Bar & Gin Palace

    Belfast Nightlife

    This is a lively place set on 3 different levels, unfortunately the upstairs was closed when I visited but I believe there are a few pool tables which I was hoping to challenge a Belfast boy or 2. I ordered sausages and mash in the downstairs bar and was a bit astounded at the size of the meal. Two huge sausages one beef and ale and one in a huge...

Beer garden is cool and overlooks the river. You will always find tourists popping in for a great pint of Guinness and a bit of craic. Night time entertainment is spot on and the...

  • Ultimate Student Club

    Very sweaty kinda place, amazing atmosphere, quite drunken but fun fun fun. It's not glamourous but it's a giggle to go to. I'd recommend it for students, it's 18 plus (as are all night clubs in general over here) Anything goes! Though the music is generally rock so that kinda crowd is generally there- it really is a mixed bag though! Jeans and a...

  • Chilled atmosphere fun spot

    Can't miss the place, there is a huge Buddha on top of the entrance. When you walk into Bar Bacca the lighting is low and you get a more relaxed atmosphere than most bars in NI. In the day they serve food but when we went it was strictly for the liquid dinner. Drinks are average price and the music was good. Different sounds on specific nights so...

  • Bars to Avoid, Most are Fine

    Most bars, pubs and clubs in Belfast are safe and good fun, but like any worldwide, you just have to be careful of drinks being spiked, fights being picked etc. There are three types of nightlife in Belfast: student, alternative/rock and pop/rnb. You find with the latter, there is a higher incident of trouble. Shaftsbury square around 1am is to be...

    The Hillside is a quiet pub that is a little more posh than the traditional irish bar. Believed to be older than 1771, the pub has a traditional, small front room with an open fire. The back lounge extends into a bistro style lounge and an upstairs restaurant with a fine vaulted, tongue in groove ceiling. The new owners have a right to be proud of...

    Once you've stumbled across to the cobblestone road you know you've made it to the Duke of York. Downstairs there are momentos of Belfast's history and feels like a traditional pub. On the night I went to the Duke, we were persuaded to go upstairs and boy was it a mistake. That night it was dj night or something and the music was crap and the...

  • Cozy underground Bar....

    BT1/Robinsons is beside the famous Crown Liquor Saloon and across the road from the Europa Hotel and the Grand Opera House. BT1 is sort of a loungy trendy mid scale place to have a few drinks. Its underneath the crowded town bar Robinson's. It has a small dancefloor and comfortable seating scattered around the bar. The toilets are unisex, making it...

    When I first walked into Beach Club, they asked me what colour sticker I wanted - Red, Yellow, or Green. Basically it was showing my status - taken, single but not looking, and single and looking. I thought this was so strange but I guess it was alright.The atmosphere was beach like - with the token go-go girls poorly dancing at the front of the...
