Belfast & Northern Ireland

Bars, Pubs and Clubs

share

Whether you’re after a quiet pint in a traditional pub, giggles over girlie cocktails or a hedonistic night of hardcore dance, Belfast’s nightlife scene has the lot.

The Cathedral Quarter, around City Hall and the Queen's University areas are the main social hubs. To help you navigate your way around the city’s bar-strewn streets, check out this chapter's handy sections.

OPENING HOURS
Licensing hours are Mon-Sat 11:30 - 23:00 and Sun 12:30 - 22:00. Bars and clubs with a late license can play music and serve food and drink until 01:00 - and stay open even later. The Kremlin is one such early hours nightclub.

A 30min drinking up time applies to all the above - but only at the manager’s discretion. So listen up, drink sensibly and - if you’re not based within walking distance - try and have your lift there and back organised in advance. Finding a taxi at closing time can be the led lining on an otherwise good night out.
