The Crown Bar Belfast

Places to Eat & Drink | Belfast, Northern Ireland.



A unique visual gem, a veritable masterpiece in bar architecture, which has the distinction of being known to millions all over the world as a place to see in Belfast. The Crown is famous as a tourist venue in the heart of Belfast, and the pub dates back to 1826, when the first train ran from Belfast to Lisburn.

The Crown Liquor Saloon in Great Victoria Street, Belfast was perhaps the greatest of Victorian Gin Palaces which once flourished in the industrial cities of Britain. Today wonderfully preserved, the Crown is cherished and still well used as a place to eat and drink in Belfast.

Painted and etched glass is everywhere you look, vivid in amber and carmine painted shells, fairies, pineapples, fleurs-de-lis and clowns. Incidentally, the colourful decorative windows fronting the bar were originally intended to shield customers from inquisitive passers-by.

Address: The Crown Bar Belfast, 46 Great Victoria Street, Belfast, BT2 7BA,
