Welcome to The Crown Liquor Saloon in Belfast


The Crown Liquor Saloon is a two-minute walk from Great Victoria Street station, and only a short stroll from the Grand Opera House, Europa Hotel, Grosvenor Road, and Glengall Street.

Nearby, you can explore many of Belfast’s historic attractions, such as the City Hall, St George’s Market, Crumlin Road Gaol, and the Titanic Experience.

A unique city centre pub with a rich history

Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Crown Liquor Saloon near you is certainly no exception.

Dating back to the 1880s, The Crown is a gem of the Victorian era. Formerly known as The Liquor Saloon in Great Victoria Street, Belfast, our ageless and priceless pub was one of the mightiest Victorian Gin Palaces in the city, and still boasts many of its original features, including gas lighting.

Refurbished in 1885, and at least twice since, The Crown is a grade A listed building owned by the National Trust, and is a truly stunning example of a traditional Victorian gin palace.
