if you like proper techno music that's raw then this is the place! been going to shine for the past year and it hasn't let me down although my friend was spiked here once all I would say is to watch your drinks and be safe!

Shine has been going for over ten years now and for a long time was the only place to hear decent underground music in Belfast, apart from a plethora of smaller, largely dingy venues. Now their spin off club, the Stiff Kitten has only strengthened the club by giving Belfast a broader than ever range of quality music.

walking throught the front doors of shine is like walking into another world. a world where people live for saturday nights and sunday sunrises. definatly a clubbers club where you have to expect to leave a drunked, sweaty mess, with about twenty more friends than when u entered (although by next week you wont have a clue who they were)....
