An intimate and unique setting with cocktail bar, nightclub and Belfast's biggest beer garden.

The National and Sixty6 showcase café food, daily hot specials and an extensive drink selection in an intimate and unique setting, with Belfast's biggest beer garden out the back and cocktail bar, nightclub and roof terrace housed over three floors.
From coffee and fresh pastries on the go, delicious soups and sandwiches for lunch and exquisite evening meals with wine or cocktails – there is something to satisfy every palate at any time of the day.
They also boast an extensive drinks selection and the largest beer garden in the city – the perfect spot for an evening get together or a break from a hard day's shopping. Barbeques and live music are regularly held during the summer months.


This cocktail bar, nightclub and roof terrace is housed over three floors. Sixty6 conjures the glamour of a classic Victorian Gentleman's Club, bringing upper levels of this Grade B+ listed former National Bank building back to their former glory.
Original features including high ceilings with intricate cornices, carved wooden pillars, original doors and a distinctive wrought iron and stone staircase which have been sympathetically restored. Plush fabrics, furnishings and fittings have been added to update the interior of the striking venue, which dates back to the 1890s.
On the first floor, the intimate cocktail bar serves a range of innovative drinks, with an impressive range of classic and more experimental Twisted Classic cocktails, alongside premium spirits, beers and an impressive Champagne list.
Two custom-built Moët and Chandon tables, with a recess to hold a chilled magnum of Moët, is part of a collaboration with the brand, which is the venue's house champagne.  A bottle table service, with premium spirits including Absolut Elyx, is also available throughout the venue.
On the upper two floors, the nightclub features live DJ entertainment from Thursday to Sunday, with access to the venue's exclusive rooftop terrace via the third floor. A varied music policy spans everything from house, funk, disco, electro swing and RnB.
