Plan the Best Pub Tour..
Living history is what Belfast is about. A trip to Belfast, in Northern Ireland would not be complete without visiting a traditional Irish pub. Whether you’re thinking about going on a ‘pub crawl’, or just visiting one, why not hire a limo to take you to and from the pub in style. When you hire a limo you can enjoy the outing without having to worry about driving, parking or about how much you have had to drink.
The Crown Liquor Saloon Bar, located in Great Victoria Street, is a Belfast institution; it was perhaps the greatest of Victorian Gin Palaces which once flourished in the industrial cities of Britain. Almost all visitors to Belfast inevitably make a visit to The Crown and it is seen as one of the most genuine Irish bars in existence.
The interior is also decorated with complex mosaics of tiles. The red granite topped bar is of an altar style, with a heated footrest underneath and is lit by gas lamps on the highly decorative carved ceilings.
The most famous features of The Crown are its ten booths, or Snugs. Built to accommodate the pub's more reserved customers during the austere Victorian period, the snugs feature the original gun metal plates for striking matches and an antique bell system for alerting staff.
The food menu has over the years been extended to suit all guests, and has come a long way in years past from Pork Pies and Pickled eggs. Although the Crown is a popular tourist destination, it still remains well patronised by the locals. And, together with the adjoining Crown Dining Rooms, is a popular lunchtime and after work haunt with the city's office workers.
So, if you want to understand Belfast, explore the Crown Liquor Saloon, and as you step out of your hired limo you will enter the House of Imagination. While most bars, pubs and clubs are found near the center of Belfast, hiring a limo gives you the opportunity to explore venues that are further away from the city away from the centre.
