“Cool Times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Door staff are very friendly and greet you as a person, which lets be honest is a rare thing these days. The bar is stocked full of your normal draft beers as well as the cocktails in jam jars, the slushy machine. Ping pong tables upstairs which always is intersting after a few drinks!

Decor is dark and packed with cool props, the bar itself is clean as are the toilets.

Would recommend to anybody in the area

“Slushy alcohol wins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went here for a pub night out and their drinks aren't too expensive, they have a slushy machine for slushy alcohol (to be fair this won me over), and then we ended up accidentally at a pub quiz, which was a nice wee surprise, cool ping pong tables upstairs and even cooler that they were playing films...no sound unfortunately but hey, not complaining. In general, nice atmosphere, but try and avoid dark corners...theyre seriously dark!

“Good nights craic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

I have been to cuckoo a few times both during the week and on a sat night. The door staff are friendly. Inside is a mixed crowd. The decor is different eg spray paint on walls etc but don't let that put you off and the music is always good, There is a wide range of drinks available and if you like beers there is a large selection of european beers both in bottle and draft. the ping pong tables provides good entertainment at the top floor! Cocktails are made and served in jam jars. and when you go outside the chippy opposite (monte carlo I think) does a good pastie supper.

“Quirky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

One of Belfasts latest trend setting bars. Guaranteed to have a good time in the best atmosphere possible. Look out for the table tops(less)
