Cocktails are beautiful things. A work of art you might say. Ok, being a barman I’m perhaps a little subjective on the matter. But they are much loved (and consumed) that’s for certain. Shaped over the centuries by pirates, Peychaud and Prohibition, cocktails have evolved with the introduction of new spirits and techniques.
In and around Belfast you’ll find almost every bar displaying some form of cocktail menu these days. Some are standard, others are slick, many are exceptional, backed up by reputation and of course, an impressive Instagram feed.
So I’ve chosen five Belfast bars, all available to book on ResDiary, and all (perhaps surprisingly in some cases) will serve you up a mean cocktail.
But first, before you read about where to enjoy these tasty tipples, please do enjoy them safely and responsibly.
