Sunflower Public House
“The Sunflower is a relic of Belfast’s past with its Troubles-era security cage still attached! It’s a hidden gem located on a backstreet and hosting an eclectic mix of great live music seven nights a week. There’s excellent wood-fired pizza in its grungy, colorful beer garden. The tap selection focuses on local brews; I’d opt for a Boundary stout from their brewery in East Belfast. They are also a dog-friendly establishment!”  — Alana Henderson

Union Street Bar

“Union Street Bar, a former Victorian shoe factory, plays host to Belfast’s best drag queens who host karaoke three nights a week as well as game shows, cabaret, and an infamous Sunday Bingo show. So good!”  —  Alana Henderson
