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… 
Oh, and theres funk and soul, and everything else….”
