    Quick run round the bog side with a union flag in your hand should raise the adrenalin levels.
     
  3. A couple of discreet bars in the New Lodge. If you do visit, tell them that I'm sorry about the baton round and everything.

    And ask them if they return it or sign for it as the QM is still going on about kit going diffy!
     
  5. Funny - I'm sure he said Belfast. Have they moved it?
     
  6. Botanique Garden up by the uni is handy if you're into scruffy students
    If you want to go just out of town try the Bally Mac
    New Forge if you fancy a crack at a police chick :twisted:

    but for normal good night out you can't beat the Crown or Beaten Docket

    Mind you that's all 20 years ago in my long hair days :)
     
  7. Belfast is really good mate and we now have some great spots

    Cafe Vaudeville, Cloth Ear, The Apartment,

    You should also go and try a pint in the Crown Bar which is good craic

    Food wise:

    Deanes / 10 Square / Zen

    If you want lovely food try James St South rather upmarket I only ever use my corporate card in there for business guest's. Couldn't pay for it myself

    There is also a fantastic Teppanki Bar near the Waterfront on the banks of the Lagan.

    Try this link for full details:

  11. Cheers Fellas. I'm really looking forward to it now.
     
  12. Try taking a trip out of town down the A2 towards Bangor, stop off in Holywood & see if the Railway Inn & the SeaHorse are still going strong. If you get as far as Bangor, see if the Coachmans is still there on the seafront - used to be good for Grab a Grannys on Wed & Sat nights.....

  14. avoid it..... most things close around 1am for some reason.
