The Kitchen Bar
The Kitchen Bar 1 Victoria Square
Belfast
BT1 4QG

The original, dating back some 150 years, was knocked down to facilitate the building of the new shopping centre. Gone at the same time was a piece of Belfast history and, as ever, the everyday folk had to find somewhere else to drink & chat. Taken over as part of a group, cask ale thrown out, then back in again. Still a favourite place for business lunchers but catering for a new generation of customers. Crowded and exuberant at night it has succumbed to the the quest for customers by the lure of loud music.

Bittles Bar
Bittles Bar 70 Upper Church Lane
Belfast
BT1 4EL

John Bittles, another real character, still has the Irish Literary & old Belfast themes that were well loved and respected. Good food and a good range of beer, which includes a good choice of special local bottled beers. Always a good place for a beer and chat.

A fascinating part of Belfast's history is in this area. This pub has been gutted and rebuilt. However, the original house, fireplace and street level have been discovered and listed so time and care has gone into the renovation. Given that Botinns has also taken over the next door property, once infamously known around the world as DuBarry's - a house of ill repute known by many a sailor around the globe (and quite a few young people strapped for cash!), this will be a must for visitors. Glad to see that the cask ale is back. It is a real pity that the collectibles have long since disappeared when DuBarry's shut down years ago!


Portside Bar
Portside Bar 1 Dargan Road
Belfast
BT3 9JU

A very high roofed, small but sufficient premise set in the dockland/warehouse area of north Belfast close to the motorway. Serving meal all day and open early mid week for breakfast.

The Rotterdam
The Rotterdam 54 Pilot Street
Belfast
BT1 3AH

One of the few remaining back street bars that had not raped by the superpub groups a couple of decades ago. Once used as a hold for prisoners prior to deportation to Australia. Almost claustrophobic inside, it hosted great music from traditional folk to blues. The tiled floor wass a bit uneven.
Still standing but a demolition order meant it would become an apartment block.
End of an era!
