Victoria Square - A curious triangular building, decorated with gilded shamrocks and dated 1861 houses the compact and fascinating pub. Formerly known as The Shakespeare, owner John Bittles has continued the glittery theme, and the tri-cornered lounge is decorated with portraits and pictures of Ireland's most celebrated literary figures, from Wilde to Yeats, Joyce and Beckett. Behind the bar hangs a painting of Kelly's Cellars in a kind of homage to the traditional Belfast bar, old stagers mingle amiably with young bucks, downing sweet hot whiskies scented with lemon and cloves while punters study form sheets, dreaming of their next big win.
