Description

Red-bricked and 'flat-iron' in shape, Bittles is a wonderful example of a traditional Victorian Bar.

Red-bricked and 'flat-iron' in shape, Bittles is a wonderful example of a traditional Victorian Bar. Founded in 1868, the bar was originally called the Shakespeare, reflecting its theatrical clientele.
Bittles offers one of Belfast's widest selections of local and international draught and bottle beers and ciders and is famed for its extensive whiskey (and whisky) collection. A talking point for regulars and visitors alike is the eclectic range of artwork adorning the triangular lounge - portraits celebrating Ireland's literary and sporting heroes including Beckett, Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, Best, Higgins and McGuigan, plus some of Northern Ireland's most famous politicians.
