Off with their heads: bonkers cocktails and unbelievable interiors

It’s getting curiouser and curiouser at The River Rooms, as their basement lounge has been transformed into a surreal fantasy, where nothing is quite as it seems. You know the drill: don't be late for this very important date.

Lewis Carroll's classic tale has not only been turned on its head, but it’s also gone through the looking glass and blasted out the other side. Located on the banks of the River Lagan, the playful paradise boasts exceptional boozy brunches with bottomless Aperol spritzes or pornstar martinis, unusual tapas and bizarre tipples like the secret Cloud9 cocktail. Ideal for fun get-togethers with your pals, unbirthday parties or not. As for the tipsy tea parties, there are birdcages stacked with delicious sweet treats and prosecco that’s served in cute, dainty teapots. The fairytale bar, featuring trippy artwork, cloud-like lighting and colourful clocks, has 300k views already on TikTok, so you know this is the real deal.

If your name is Alice? Make sure to bring ID as you’ll receive a complimentary tipple on arrival.

The River Rooms can be found at 5 Donegall Quay. Check out more weird and wonderful bars and sign up be the first to know about cool new openings in our future Belfast newsletter.
