Beautiful old Irish pub, great atmosphere. Stopped at the bar downstairs, grabbed a pint of Guinness. A group in one of the booths broke out in song. Upstairs has a small restaurant with great food. The fish and chips were great.

no visit to Belfast is complete unless you stop in for a visit of the Crown Liquor Salon. Tin ceilings and gas powered lights provided a unique experience followed up with a romantic dinning experience upstairs made for a perfect evening.

The coolest thing about the Crown Saloon is that is was refurbished in recent years to mimic the look it had in the late 1800s. Beautiful and colorful tiles! The bar is separated into booths which were originally there so the women could drink privately...More

Really really beautiful bar, very authentic. Good beer. I recommend this place because you should experience it when you r in Belfast. When we were there every one was very very drunk. So this place has not the allure of a sofisticated bar.More

We had lunch there and the food was okay. I would think that Saturday night is going to be very busy and the staff will be focused on drinking customers. I'd plan a drink there and dinner somewhere else. If you want to go... More
