The Dock is a pop-up coffee bar, art gallery and information venue at the heart of the Titanic Quarter. It is the only exclusively Honesty Box cafe in the world – and a shared space for people to relax, meet and eat.
The Dock is unique. A pop-up space for community, conversation and life in the Titanic Quarter. Furnished (in true pop-up style) in a fusion of old and new (referred to by the café as Victorian-Edwardian-Industrial-Pop-Up-Chic) it's a space to relax, unwind, meet up and chill out. You can enjoy hot strong coffee, a huge variety of teas and delicious bakes – or BYOF (Bring Your Own Food) and use the plates, knives and forks.
You can find a table, a squashy sofa or a cosy corner to watch the world go by. You can browse a huge range of art and photography from archive pictures of Titanic under construction, to cutting-edge art, to photography of Belfast's shipyard at every stage of its history. Explore some unique artefacts from Belfast's shipbuilding heyday including models, relics and furniture from the evocative Harland & Wolff Drawing Office building. (There's even a door from Thomas Andrews' family home). Dabble with a huge range of board games and jigsaws if you have a few hours to spare.
Find out all about what's on offer in the Titanic Quarter at the information stand (or by chatting to the enthusiastic volunteers). You can pick-up a bargain at the pop-up market stall, which is available for all sorts of different local cottage industries and home businesses. Take time to pause and reflect in the Prayer Garden, a little corner of greenery, light and quiet in the corner of the cafe. You can strum on the Titanic Guitars (as long as you are at least a 3-chord wonder) and even meet Kate and Leo (they're the goldfish). Everything from the art, the food, the coffee, the photography, and the sculpture is local and home-made, the whole enterprise is volunteer-run, and the ethos is hand-built with love. We're here to celebrate the good news in Belfast and enjoy Life in the Titanic Quarter.
