The Crown Liquor Saloon

Avoid the date night faff of cooking at home and head along to The Crown Liquor Saloon. This laid-back boozer offers couples a cosy space that's perfect for delving into hearty bites with an ice-cold pint in hand. Our choices? The mac 'n' cheese with garlic ciabatta and sticky toffee pudding.

Belfast: City Walking Adventure & Interactive Treasure Hunt

@ Spirit of Belfast Statue on Various dates from Thursday 25th April 2024

Channel your inner explorers and get a couple of tickets to the Belfast City Walking Adventure & Interactive Treasure Hunt. Explore the streets of the city, through the Cathedral Quarter and along the River Lagan, solving puzzles and learning rich, historical facts along the way. So, put on your walking shoes and maybe even stop off for a cheeky pint throughout your route.  

The Tipsy Bird

Happy Hours and 1 other offer

Fronting the perfect backdrop with dim lighting and botanical-inspired features, The Tipsy Bird is one of our favourite romantic gems and offers plenty for date night. Throughout the week you'll often find live music, then a drag brunch come the weekend. Make gooey eyes over a fabulous range of bespoke (and naughty) concoctions, including a whiskey-laced Raunchy Robin.

Filthy McNasty's

Filthy McNasty's is the place for you if you're looking to let your hair down a little and show your beau your wild side. Not only does this live music hub house some of the city's best or up-and-coming artists on its stage, but it also has sultry interiors, such as mannequin lamps, vintage vinyl and red candles.

Bullhouse

For indoor date ideas in Belfast, Bullhouse has got you covered. Inside this cool boozer, you'll be able to try out a range of hoppy brews from 20 taps or the fridge, followed by a scrumptious wood-fired pizza. If you're looking for something a little different, head to a tasting masterclass.

AMPM

If the flirty, floral interior of AMPM isn't enough to dazzle your date, then the exquisite cocktails and globally inspired menu will do the trick. Snap some pics of your hot hun against the backdrop of this aesthetically pleasing restaurant and enjoy herb-crusted salmon, a curried cauliflower burger, or even pay a visit for afternoon tea. 

Rita's

Rita's promises to set one hell of a romantic scene for you and your date. The vibe of this intimate haunt is cosy and sleek, with leather sofas and homely table lamps. Don your glad rags and make your way to this drinking den that whips up some lip-smacking treats. Think floral cocktails, like the Plymouth sloe and Aperol Blackthorn, accompanied by moreish small plates, for example cheese and antipasti boards accompanied by wine. 

Six by Nico Belfast

Experience fine dining for less at Six By Nico in the Cathedral Quarter, famed for its experimental six-course tasting menus with previous themes as wild as the Mad Hatter's tea party and the funfair.  The interiors offer marble countertops, dark brown furnishings and an open-plan kitchen so you can watch the magic happen. You'll be able to tuck into creative plates that rotate every six weeks for less than the usual high-brow tasting menu and wow your sweetheart with such a great find.

Tetto

Situated on Church Lane, Tetto is a leafy sky-high eatery that is one of the best things to do in Belfast for couples if you're looking to wow. Join for an art installation, its late-night vinyl sessions on Fridays and Saturdays or head up to the rooftop to take in the stunning city views, spritz in hand, to the soundtrack of a DJ. The menu boasts a range of internationally inspired meals, like the fennel and chilli meatballs with tomato and mascarpone.
