Limelight is one of Belfast’s most iconic and enduring fixtures. Believe it or not, its been going since 1987, yes 1987. The complex consists of two club rooms, appropriately named Limelight 1 and Limelight 2, which are connected by Katy’s Bar. Limelight 1 is the larger of the two, playing the standard club tunes, while Limelight 2 plays rock and metal for people who want a heavier night. The Limelight complex also hosts gigs, so be sure to check what’s on before planning a night out.
Limelight, 17 Ormeau Ave, Belfast, Northern Ireland
ALIBI is popular spot. Its ground floor is open during the days, offering spirits, cocktails and food, and the upstairs club opens at night. ALIBI host various club nights throughout the week ranging from generous drinks promo to live fire-breathing performances on Fridays and Saturdays. ALIBI is directly oppisite to Laverys.

Opened in 1999, it was the first gay venue in Northern Ireland that was genuinely gay-owned and managed, and it continues to be one of the most popular gay venues in the whole of Ireland. It’s split into three separate areas: Tsar: the cocktail lounge; Long Bar: a disco bar; and Red Square: which is the main room regularly hosting DJs and live acts.

"I started going out quite young and going to the likes of Shine with a fake ID and being blown away by it all. I was part of that generation where YouTube was becoming a thing and from then on, I’d watch YouTube videos of DJs like Villalobos etc. during the school week, while bursting for a taste of it again the next weekend. From then I knew I wanted to be a part of this and was lucky enough to become a resident at Shine a few years after and continue to play there regularly now. Belfast crowds are the best in the world, and it's hard not to be inspired by that. Friendly people, hands down. It's something I've noticed having moved from there to London and now Berlin, both of which are a little more, let’s say... frosty!"
Thompsons is absolutely integral to the fabric of Belfast’s nightlife, definitely somewhere to go rather than stumble upon. Tucked down its own alley, a stone’s throw from City Hall, it attracts people from all walks of life but especially music lovers, with dance and EDM being particular favourites. Thompsons has been open for 23 years, and is usually open every night, so it’s clearly doing something right.

Opened in 1934, the King's Hall was the largest exhibition venue in Northern Ireland and, prior to the completion of the Odyssey (now SSE) Arena and the Waterfront Hall, was the only large indoor concert venue in Northern Ireland.
The likes of Tiesto and the annual music festival 'planetlove' have hosted events here. Open air large attendee dance music events at the King's Hall have been banned by Belfast City Council since 2011 after a councillor heavily envolved with the Licensing Committee, said he had been to observe the Planet Love event in September, 5 months before the ban and commented "I was there on both days and what I saw shocked me" .
Lavery’s, 12–18 Bradbury Place, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Ollie’s is a more upscale option attached to (and beneath) Belfast’s Merchant Hotel. Located in catacombs that were previously used as bank vaults, the space is subdivided into various different spaces, making the club feel intimate even though it has a capacity of 500 revellers. Door staff are a little more selective here than in other clubs, so take the opportunity to dress up a little.
Ollies, Merchant Hotel, 35–39 Waring St, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Ballycastle's first purpose built nightclub has two levels (lower level and upper level) with two main club rooms providing alternative styles of music to suit all tastes. There is a VIP section and a separate
lounge bar. State of the
art lighting and sound combined with luxurious decor makes Halo a winner.
