About
Temporarily Closed Grumpy's opened it's doors on Friday 30th October 2015. The premises was formally Betty Blacks. Upstairs underwent a major refurbishment, which transformed the venue from an old dark nightclub into a vibrant, cool and very unique cocktail lounge. Open late Friday & Saturday and is strictly for the over 25s. The music upstairs reflects the mood of the venue. Expect great Soul, Funk, Disco and Indie Rock classics. No chart music or dance!!! (The ground-floor bar still caters for this type of music - Saturday Afternoons here are very busy with Hen parties and the like). A truly unique bar in Bangor that has taken off since it's opening night, with a fantastic crowd and mixture of ages from 25 and up. Fantastic Cocktails, Beers, Spirits, Music, and lively staff.

Great wee night

We stayed in Bangor for the night, music was good and musician outside was good too. Had a great night and Lisa was fab, she made sure we didnt not have a drink the whole time we were there so she got the blame of the hangovers lol.

Lunch on a Monday
Jan 2018 • Couples
Well was shown upstairs to table for two - no other customers - nice and warm - terrible loud music (no need) and a hole in the floor at my feet beside an electric socket! Very limited menu and nothing really appealed to me - wanted to go to Noble but it was closed. Staff were pleasant enough have to say but this venue I will not be returning.

Rude barman
Aug 2017 • Friends
Went for a few drinks at Betty Blacks. The bar had run out of both soda and lime and when asking for alternatives the bar man was particularly rude.

Regardless of the cost of the drinks, I would expect the staff to be polite and helpful.

Doubt I will be back with such rude staff.

Brilliant cocktails on Sat afternoon 11th July

Margarita one of the best I have tasted anywhere in the world. The "after dinner" one was so great we had to have 2 each. Great price too. Lovely bar with very friendly helpful staff. Not in Bangor often but would definitely go back again.

TERRIBLE!!!!!
Mar 2015 • Friends
To me waiting over an hour for your first drink is unaceptable! Especially when u have reserved a table for 10 ppl. The staff were unhelpful and very rude to say the least. If you are drunk enough not to notice these things you will have a great night otherwise I wouldn't start your night off here. Very disappointing!

Cocktails on sat afternoon
Went here yesterday for cocktails (7th feb) and had a great day and the cocktails were lovely but the only down side was that it took 45 minutes to get them and even missed some peoples order which then was questioned did we actually order. This should not happen, they should have enough staff on to deal with this after all the same deal as far as I know is on every week, surely by now u know the pattern of what weeks are busy.

Went to Betty Blacks on Saturday with friends in the afternoon and seriously enjoyed the half price cocktails , DJ and music where excellent , stayed on late into the night in the club upstairs and the place was rocking. Best night I've had in ages and will definitely be back. Keep up the good work guys.

A classy cocktail bar worth visiting!
Oct 2014
A stylish and entertainment filled venue with great music and incredible cocktails for half price. I would highly recommend this bar, whether you're looking for a night out or a quick drink after work. I experienced friendly and welcoming service from the staff and doormen and my cocktails where top notch for only £2.95 each at half price!
