The Legend That Is 'The Bot'

Trading since 1867 The Botanic Inn, which is more affectionately known as ‘The Bot’, is a Belfast institution and has long held the position as the city’s number one destination for anyone seeking great food, quality drinks, a lively night out and big screen sport.

The Bot consists of three different bars:

The Traditional Front Bar is a cosy corner where locals and visitors enjoy each other’s company in quiet, comfortable, surroundings. 

The Main Bar is a hive of activity from noon when the lunch crowd take advantage of the high quality, great value food, until night when the crowds gather to enjoy the nightly entertainment. 

The Club is one of Belfast’s longest running and most loved nightclubs, which is open Wednesday night and Saturday night.

With a steady stream of locals, students and visitors to Belfast, 'The Bot' is not only the biggest bar in Northern Ireland, but also the busiest.

The Boho Garden is an idyllic garden that can be discovered between the iconic Botanic Inn & the Wellington Park Hotel, which will boast an inviting space with relaxing surroundings.

With generous banquet style seating and individually themed huts, fitted with their own flat screen, the BOHO garden offers the social and seclusion blend to meet every occasion.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
