Housed in a (for Belfast) fairly unique "flat-iron" building, this small bar is famous for both its quirky, triangular shape and its eclectic range of artwork celebrating Ulster's political and sporting celebrities. While the staff can appear a bit taciturn to newcomers, the bar serves...More

Bittles Bar Belfast The rudest barman I have ever met 624412779 Lovely bar, but John the barman/owner? Is the most ignorant man ever put on earth. Never before have I heard anyone speak to customers in that way. It's almost as if he doesn't want...More

Nice old style pub with a good range of drinks. If you like your whiskey there’s a great selection. Friendly bar owner with good banter. It was busy but the barman went out his way to fetch us extra stools and look after our group

An attractive and interesting bar/pub, particularly because of the artwork on display. Interesting selection of varied customers, though the turnover seemed high. There's a wide range of bottled craft ales (and some on pump) but what a price! Why do they charge £2.50 a half...More

this is a great wee bar to hang out in for a few drinks - locals and tourists alike chat away with each other. Great range of whiskeys - the bar man deserves a medal for his humour! Love the place
