Following being out at the Empire Bar in Belfast last night I thought that I should review it today. The Empire Bar is in Botanic Avenue in Belfast near to the central hub of Belfast nightlife. The Empire is in a great location and you will always find a taxi nearby, a hotel to stay in and fast food late at night! The Empire is split into two Bars, the larger of the two bars is upstairs in the building and is very impressive.

The Empire is a great bar, a Belfast tradition! It has a wide selection of events on on different nights and to be honest, most of them are very good.

As far as I'm aware, this is the only comedy club in Belfast (although I can't be 100% sure of that). It's held on a Tuesday night in The Empire bar on Botanic Avenue, although it doesn't run all year round, it does have "seasons". They don't advertise the comedians that they have, it's a turn up and see affair, although anytime that I've been there, it's always packed. The comedians are a hit and miss affair - generally they are excellent, although I have seen a few just die onstage. On rare occasions the comedian will be someone fairly famous that you'll probably have seen on the telly at some point, but ... Read the complete review
