Description

Located in the district which was once home to many of the city’s press offices, The Reporter Bar honours Belfast’s newspaper printing and publishing heritage, while supporting local produce from all over Northern Ireland.

Situated on Union Street, neighbouring the Irish News offices and the old Belfast Telegraph building, the intimate bar’s warm and welcoming interior is clad with artefacts and memorabilia, illustrating the city’s colourful history through the eyes of the press.

Local products make the headlines at The Reporter. Craft beers from Northern Ireland breweries, such as Beer Hut, Bullhouse and Lacada, are proudly poured alongside local spirits like Belfast Vodka, Hinch Whiskey and Ninth Wave Gin.

Henry Wormell, manager of The Reporter said he was thrilled to welcome the public to Belfast’s newest bar:

“This part of town was like our equivalent to London’s Fleet Street. The Belfast Telegraph, Irish News, News Letter and Northern Whig & Belfast Post were all based around here over the decades. In fact, my grandfather, Jimmy Walker, was a sports journalist for the Tele for almost 30 years. It feels very appropriate to commemorate this part of Belfast’s history, whilst championing our own world class beers & spirits.”

The Reporter is a dog-friendly bar, open 7 days a week, from 2pm until 1am.
