Situated in a 19th century shoe factory, this is one of the city's most stylish bars and a great place for some fine gastro pub grub. The two storey-high interior of exposed brick, industrial pipes, open fire and pale green and chrome décor gives the space a cool yet comfy vibe. Upstairs, the Green Room Cocktail Lounge is particularly worthy of your patronage. Along with the adjoining Shoe Factory it's a popular pre-club venue beside big sister Kremlin nightclub. Theme nights can range from Bingo and Karaoke to quizzes and cabaret. Quelle fun.
As a new middle-aged guy just entering the gay scene I have found the Union bar and Slosh to be very welcoming. Both bar staff and security staff could not do more for its customers. 10/10 especially for security staff.
i worked there the first 6 months it was open and the security staff were really great back then. times have no-doubt changed. must be time for me to fly back to the northern hemisphere to check out whats going on but is it worth it nowadays?
bouncers are very rude and turn away gay people that have been doing the scene since the days when gays had to sneak outa the orpheus,A... the head bouncer REALLY shouldnt be working with normal people,shes hateful.If your a faghag,its perfect,if your looking for a gay haven....FORGET IT!!!!!JOANNE,BELFAST
bouncers need to go on a training course and look to see where the drugs dealers r .
I think things must have changed as any night I have been there recently the security folk are fine. They do look fairly serious but then I suppose they can't get too friendly with the punters or it would be hard to eject them if they were causing problems!
i totally agree with the review above and because of the bouncers attitude it has put a lot of people of going there.
The bouncers need to take a course in customer service. I found their attitude and manner quite agressive
