This is unpretentious, shabby nightlife at its best!

Resident Advisor

An intimate venue with a warm, welcoming feel and a long tradition of wonderful live music and clubnights – its a hidden gem in Belfast’s nightlife.

Formerly a paint store, you can imagine the red brick building hasn’t changed much, either inside or out.
Dont bother dressing up, just bring your cool self for a night of good music – from DJ sets, to acoustic sessions, rock & punk to jazz & blues – goth industrial and everything else…


The Menagerie team provides a tailored event experience, executed to your specifications as best as we can see fit.

We are available for private hire Sunday – Thursday. Please be aware that we rarely can accommodate birthday parties or private events on Friday or Saturday nights as these are reserved for club nights and touring live music.

Potential Productions include Corporate Parties and Drinks Receptions, Conferences and Presentations, Fashion Shows and award ceremonies.

The Menagerie has regularly been chosen for Music Video Shoots for local bands and signed bands – documentaries and feature films.

Outside of our normal gigging hours – the Menagerie’s flexibility, layout and technical specification support exhibitions, breakout workshops, showcases and product launches perfectly.

If you’re planning a gig – have an idea or a project – lets collaborate and throw a party to remember.
