Cocktail Bar

“This is a good place to go early on in the evening for a cocktail just for the experience and to people watch. The cocktails are fantastic as is the service, a bit on the pricey side (£10-ish for a cocktail) but worth going there for one to start the evening off.”

“Situated at the entrance to Belfast's thriving Cathedral Quarter.... Berts encapsulates the sleek elegance of the art-deco era, complemented by live jazz, fabulous cocktails and mouth watering food. Find yourself instantly transported back to the chic, intimate jazz bars of 1930's New York as you soak up the sophisticated atmosphere and let the cool jazz melodies wash over you. A handpicked list of cocktails completes an extensive drinks selection. A French bistro style menu is complemented by an extensive wine list and, of course, exemplary service.”
