Was glad to see a new addition to the Belfast gay scene when the Maverick opened it's doors. I often frequent on Saturday night for the best show of the week "Portia Presents" hosted by Northern Ireland's best drag queen, the stunning Lady P. The show is all about audience interaction, fun performances and of course the free drinks!!! 7-9... More

I have been in Maverick a couple of times but it seems it gets worse as time passes. The guys behind the bar are extremely slow and rude, and the prices are unreasonably high. There are some karaoke and drag shows every now and then, but nothing special. The last 2-3 times I was there the bar was quite emprty,... More

this is one of those gay bars where I felt like I had walked into a private party and that I wasn't welcome. the barman failed to engage very purposefully.

As a regular visitor to Belfast, I like to suss out new places, and I had read about a bar on Union Street, that was a bit unusual, so I had to investigate. So I asked a man if he knew where Union Street was, and I got a funny look from him, followed by very quick directions. I found... More

If you are looking for the real deal, this is it. This earthy real bar has now been used in several big movies as a location! It is unpretensious and has an interesting and varied clientele. All there for the craic.

The Front page has in recent years turned into an underground venue for dance music lovers. Yes its pretty dingy and a bit rough but if you want a good cheap night with an underground flavour then this is your place. Wont suit everybody!

After reading the guide book and other recommendations of this place I wanted to visit it on a quick evening's tour of famous Belfast pubs. We walked in and walked straight out again. Far from being the hang out of journos and media types that the guide book had claimed, it was full of extremely drunk chavs, dressed in the... More
