The Belfast Empire adds some eclectic charm to the city of Belfast. This 19th century converted church located on Botanic Avenue offers visitors 3 floors of bars and live music to appeal to all music lovers, along with a hugely popular stand-up comedy night.
True to its name, The Belfast Empire provides a space for all genres of music including blues, rock, jazz, and traditional Irish acts. With a maximum capacity of just 500 and a cabaret layout of 300, the Empire is the perfect venue to catch up-and-coming artists or established musicians looking to play a more intimate show. Recent artists who have passed through the Belfast Empire include The Magic Numbers, Lindi Ortega and Steven Page.
In addition to its gig offering, the Empire is also liked for its affordable food and is particularly highly regarded by those who like their beers, thanks to its heated walled beer garden. Most Tuesdays between September and June the Empire also hosts its own weekly comedy night, The Empire Laughs Back, presenting acts from the national and international comedy circuit. With its comfy vibes and diverse entertainment, you can always rely on the Belfast Empire for a good night out.
