Pub culture is a big deal in Belfast, and there are plenty of watering holes where you can have a quiet drink or a big night out. Here are some of the best.
Among the newer pubs in town is The Five Points, which has quickly made a reputation as a top spot for live music. Grab a pint and watch the band play the night away.
Arguably the most famous pub in Belfast is The Crown Liquor Saloon, which boasts a long history and a consistently good atmosphere. Just across the road you will find Robinsons Bar, which has a number of rooms in different themes.
Head away from the tourist areas to Maddens Bar, where there are live bands every night. This is a real locals pub, so you might be one of the only tourists around.
Nearby is Kelly’s Cellars, a historic pub chock full of bric-a-brac. It’s an atmospheric old place that is a good bet for a Sunday afternoon drink.
Another historic pub is Whites Tavern, running since the 17th century. You can look it up in A Taste of Ulster Guide, and there are traditional peat-burning fires to keep you warm during the winter months.
While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
