With it’s classic fittings and firm place in the heart of Belfast’s nightlife you’d be forgiven for thinking The Empire Music Hall has been around forever. Yet it’s a practically mature 27 years old, having first opened its doors back in 1987.
It would soon gain a reputation as one of the country’s premier live music bars, thanks mostly to the spectacular Music Hall, arguably one of the country’s finest small/medium size venues thanks to it’s beginnings as a Victorian era church – both visually impressive and acoustically sound.
Over the years the Music Hall would attract artists of all forms and from all over the world, not to forget local irish talent.
And that’s only half the story – the Empire Bar is one of Belfast’s best loved drinking holes, with it’s cinema style big screen for all the major sports events, well-loved pub grub menu and vintage wall displays. Traditional without being contrived, the bar attracts people from all walks of life.
