The National, Belfast’s newest venue opens tomorrow and we were given a sneak peek tour at lunchtime today. Wow!
What a great looking place and a welcome addition to the City with a fantastic mixture of industrial modern decor with a touch of old school glamour inside a beautiful exterior of a building.
From the team behind the Merchant Hotel, you just know it’s going to be a must go destination right at the entrance to the Cathedral Quarter.
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), we can already imagine pop up outdoor gigs and many fun nights out.
Keep an eye out for the patisserie next door where everything will be baked on site. The patisserie will also provide baking for the National and the Merchant Hotel. Finally a Belfast patisserie… I almost feel like I’m on mainland Europe already!
The National opens at 10pm tomorrow (Saturday 14th) , so start queueing for another fabulous Belfast experience!
