Called in to Union St. for a pint before heading home this evening. Impressed with the service, the bar staff, the music and the general ambience of the place. Alas, with about 1/10 of a pint left to drink we were repeatedly and aggressively told to leave by two of the most intimidating, thuggish bullies it's been my misfortune to encounter. Clearly having had nothing to do in their "bouncing " capacity outdoors they had decided to throw their not inconsiderable weight around inside instead. There was absolutely no reason for this behaviour other than their own urgency to get home as early as possible and indeed both had left the premises within seconds of my own departure. It is a dreadful shame that a company as reputable as that which runs the Kremlin and Union Street, having sold a client a drink refuses to allow them the time to drink it.

Been coming here for years, your cocktail server is the most rude person! After waiting 20 minutes to get served I asked for a bottle of wine to which he said go down stairs if your not ording cocktails, sorry when was this the policy?
Place is amazing!!! Staff so helpful and friendly. Food, sevice and value excellent!. Have already recommended to friends and family, to visit. Well done Granny Annies, for bringing a very quirky, needed place to eat, drink and smoke, in fab surroundings, to Belfast. Be back soon.!!!!
Visited this club on 2/8/16 and found it to be a dirty run-down dump. The carpet on the stairs my feet were sticking to and a few times I actually slipped.The toilets were disgusting with doors hanging off or else none at all. The so called VIP areas were a joke with the only special treatment I could see was it afforded you a seat to sit on or else you had to find yourself a space to stand. This place doesn't do itself justice as it is a lovely location beside the Lagan and wouldn't compare to when it was The Edge.
Really poor bar service, always takes ages to get served and the same round we were charged different prices. It gets a nice older crowd so no need for the rude door staff
