Small dark and crowded for good reason. The Spaniard is the perfect antidote to all the beard and flannel shirt bars that have opened all around it. Just go in get a rum and leave the beard comb at home.

Another place to get off the beaten path and enjoy a Belfast pub. The music was great and this not a trendy place but a real pub.

If Muriel's has gin, here has rum. Again a wide variety of cocktails. All of which were great. Small and cosy environment.

Stoped in here with some friends had a few drinks. I had a Black and Gold, I would recommend it as a small sipper. The bartender was pretty cool and did a great job making the drink. It's a pretty small place, hopefully you get a seat and stay a while!

Amazing bar specialising in rum. The barman sean is super knowledgeable about the different rums and spirits and guided us around the different selections brilliantly. We enjoyed cocktails and are currently drinking for the first time rum in a warm glass which smells and tastes amazing would recommend an afternoon in here !😚

Lovely bar but we sat at the far end by the toilets as only free table and there was a horrid smell. Such a shame as some great cocktails!

This was the final stop on a Belfast bar crawl on a Saturday night. Is quite small but I liked that. The music was excellent and eclectic with everything from Kasabian to Northern Soul. And I am in love with the Dark and Stormy cocktail 💜will definitely be back the next time I visit Belfast would recommend it to anyone... More

Came here for drinks on Friday night before meeting a friend for dinner. The downstairs bar was very busy so we went upstairs where we got a table. The drinks were good, decent music and pleasant bar staff. Good dark and stormies!

Thank Melanie C
