As our name implies, the Basement Bar & Grill lies underground and almost surreptitiously peeps up at the grandeur of Belfast City Hall.

We are widely recognised as one of Belfast’s most popular bars and restaurants with a regular clientele that covers the spectrum of city centre workers, shoppers and tourists alike. The bar boasts a truly extensive spirit and cocktail list – making it the perfect venue for drinks. We also have a fabulous grill menu offering truly gorgeous meals in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

We look forward to seeing you.

We are now taking bookings for Christmas.

From Monday 28th November we will open Monday to Saturday till 9.00pm for food.
