25 reviews Maverick

It's a nice place, for Belfast. The crowd are generally nice and the atmosphere is quite calm, the alternative gay bar, union st, is just too rough around the edges for non Belfast natives, all straight girls are legless and screaming by 20:00, so Maverick is a nice alternative. It's just a pity that there's only about 2 dozen people in there on a Saturday evening, way too quiet. The straight bars of Belfast would be a better shout.
