One of the best bars in Belfast. Come as you are and have the craic. Always a good night out.

Submitted by Evan on 17th January 2012

Can not understand why Lavery's is not number 1! By far the best!

Submitted by RWC on 17th January 2012

Best bar in Belfast by far. Though prices could be a bit cheaper:)

Submitted by Rab Moore on 17th January 2012

Laverys is an amazing bar with lots of friendly doorstaff and barstaff. The three floors provide something for everyone, whether its a few pints with the lads or a meal with the missus or even saturday night out, Laverys is the place to be. The top floor provides pool throughout the week and on saturday is turned into a nightclub with great DJ's who will play most requests. It also has a huge smoking area which is always very busy and full of friendly people. The bar on a whole is a great place to be with a great atmosphere, great pints and great food. Solid 9/10.

Lavery's has quickly become my favourite place for a night out in Belfast.

The door and bar staff, are friendly, there's a great, down to earth crowd and a real mix of music at the weekends.

Submitted by Elaine on 17th January 2012

Laverys is probably the best all round bar in the City. Three floors containing four different bars and an eclectic mix of people and music. The door staff are hard to fault on the whole and the bar is very well run. Admittedly some of the bar staff are poor (there is a young bar manager type who can be a bit of a stain) but the rest of them are top draw and more than make up for the numpties/fools. I'd confidently recommend Laverys to everyone, especially tourists looking to experience the friendly down to earth side of Belfast. Laverys punters are hard to beat

went here on a fri night and it was packed. there was trouble throughout the night.i hadnt been in yrs. the clintelle was lot to be desired as was the bouncers. doormen were extremely rude and unfriendly as were some staff. I now know the reason i stayed away in the first place and this time i wont be back.

Can get really packed at times and there can be trouble / mess like a lot of places in town. But a lively friendly atmosphere, good deals on drinks as well as a range of music styles and different areas to check out

Submitted by Donna on 19th April 2011

Terrible place. Never again. We saw about 3 fights in the one night we were there. Most bouncers and management were rude. Toilets dirty and some dodgy clintele.

I would not here again for Christmas dinner, it was like a school dinner. Burnt roast potatoes, burnt yorkshire pudding, undercooked ham and gloopy tasteless gravy all over half the plate. Cold noodles for starter. A not very crunchy topped creme brulee. If you like getting packed in like a sardine by all means go at night time at the weekend. Be prepared to wait at the bar and stand all night. Awful toilets. Sticky floor.

The legend bar in Belfast. Have had shedloads of brilliant nights in it.

Haha, we were in Lavery's on Saturday night for a work do. And this girl from Dublin came up to us with this 18 year old fella who was with us and said "Is he your friend? He's just adorable!" and she talked to us for a good 10 minutes, it was great craic lol

If you want a bar full of people just lettin their hair down and enjoyin themselves, head to Lavery's on a saturday night, the atmostphere's brilliant.

Used to hear back reports about this place until I tried it for myself. My cousin recommened it last summer (on a good day), for the beer garden. Had a great night we only meant to stay an hour and ended up stumbling home at closing time. Visited the Back Bar, fell into a company and some have become great friends now. Im here at least once a week. Never judge from what other people tell you, try it for yourself. I did and im sorry i never tried it a little sooner.

I went for the first time on Friday night there because my mate was over from Edinburgh for Christmas. We sat in the public bar and it was great craic, bar staff were really quick and friendly. Went back last night and paid a fiver for the 3 rooms thing. I couldn't find the 3rd room but the bunker and the attic were nice, a bit small but still plenty of room. The drink was cheap too! I'd heard bad things about Lavery's but my 2 nights in a row there proved them wrong, I love the place!

Submitted by Kyle on 11th January 2009

Excellent for a any occasion! Has something for everyone. The mix of music upstairs is good. The prices are good.

Overall, its a great place.

Submitted by Adrian on 3rd October 2008

Laverys still gets a rough crowd, particularly in the back bar. It's the type of place where you have to watch your back, not a pleasant feeling if you want to have a relaxing night out! Such a shame for a bar which has so much potential.

Submitted on 16th March 2008

Nice place...

Barstaff were very efficient and friendly. Drinks were relatively cheap... and seemed to have a nice friendlt vibe about the place.

Option to listen to some local bands (varying standards).

Comfortable bar though.

All-round: 7/10 (and i'm TIGHT!) ha ha

Submitted by Tomski on 21st December 2007

I would say that Lavery's is one of those bars that you wouldn't want to sit down in one place for two long. The beer garden is brilliant craic and just danderin' about talking to whoever you come across is great fun. It just has that atmosphere that so many other bars lack.

I have to say though that the doormen can be cheeky sods sometimes, but all in all, they're sound as.

Submitted by Michael on 3rd November 2007

Best beer garden in Belfast.

Submitted on 27th September 2007

I really like Laverys since it has been done up, particularly the once dingey back bar. It has been transformed into a modern disco, playing a real diverse range of music, with free admission, and prompt, friendly service.

They've also tightened the door policy, but some scumbags are still managing to get in. Please Laverys get this sorted, because you are doing a great job.

Submitted on 6th May 2007

I've been down about 3 times in the last couple of months - what a transformation! You could spend the night in the toilets -they're so much better. The staff were all so friendly & the music was great - check out the beer garden too -i know where i'll be come summer!! Well done

Submitted on 17th April 2007

It's a great place. I was over from England to see friends and was staying across the road for Laverys. Great food and fine drinks selection. The Friday night was top and though it's not my thing all of the time they run the best Gothic club I've ever been to.

Submitted by Diane on 24th March 2007

Without doubt the best bar in Belfast. No other place offers so much in terms of entertainment, value for money and atmosphere.

Each bar has its own feel, but the warm friendly atmosphere is present in each one.

Food is excellent and very reasonable.

Free entertainment every night in the Back Bar and cracking alternative live gigs in the Bunker. The Public Bar is great for football, and there's 10p off pints for every goal scored.

i ahve been once and the door staff were very friendly n i didnt even no them.

Submitted by v on 8th February 2007

Haven't been to Lavs for ages then happened to just call in with my mates the other night as I noticed they had been getting a bit of work done. Brilliant refurb of the front & back bars! It looks great & glad they got rid of those awfull toilets. Music was good & the staff were really friendly. Will be back again soon!
