A fascinating past

The Crown is both ageless and priceless, a gem of Victoriana and in our view one of the great bars of the world. Formerly known as The Liquor Saloon in Great Victoria Street, Belfast, it was one of the mightiest Victorian gin palaces which once flourished in the industrial cities of the British Isles.
