The National, one of Belfast’s most popular venues is a busy restaurant and bar on the edge of the buzzing Cathedral Quarter. Before it opened to the public, we were given a sneak peek tour.
The interior a fantastic mixture of industrial modern decor with a touch of old school glamour inside a beautiful exterior of a building. With exposed brickwork, flashes of yellow and hints of traditional decor mixed in with modern art and a glass ceiling, the National is an eclectic and quirky venue.
With the biggest beer garden in the city overlooked by the upper rooms of the Merchant and with its own quirky outside bar this outdoor spot (which used to be bin storage) is very popular.
Their patisserie, Mimi, has opened next door where everything is baked on site. The patisserie also provides baking for the National and the Merchant Hotel. Finally a Belfast patisserie… I almost feel like I’m on mainland Europe already! (The Patisserie MIMI has now closed)
Sixty6 on the top floors of the National is now open. Find out more about this cocktail bar, nightclub and roof terrace here.
