The Harp Bar, in the heart of the City's Cathedral Quarter, can be found in the former Hea
The Harp Bar, situated alongside its big brother the hugely famous Duke of York, is a pub like no other. Firstly, it is a proper public house for the mature drinker selling crisps, dulse, coffees, independent draught beers and an extensive range of whiskey and at all times “Belfast Craic” with a huge heart.
Secondly, it is a live music venue on two floors hosting home-grown talent from the likes of Van Morrison etc. Both of these factors attempt to recreate the once famous “atmosphere” synonymous with its predecessor the 1970's Harp Bar.
The Harp, incorporating the Dunvilles & Swinging Diddy Lounges is decorated in plush red velvet fabrics and adorned with antique furnishings resonant with Victorian Belfast. Walls and cabinets feature rare Belfast whiskey – branded mirrors and memorabilia inspired by the buildings origins as a bonded warehouse - the headquarters of The Old Bushmills Distillery Company. Pride of place is given to a large Victorian Cash Desk which was rescued from the St James Gate Brewery in Dublin.
Just call in and you will enjoy a huge welcome from a proper pub with a huge “Belfast Spirit.”
