Duke of York & The Harp Bar

Duke of York & The Harp Bar

Located in the north of the city and nestled along a narrow, cobbled alleyway in the historic Half Bap area, The Duke of York offers a traditional Belfast welcome of craic, music and humour in contrast to the modern, fashionable establishments currently blowing into the surrounding streets. Over the years The Duke of York in Belfast’s Commercial Court has been the life of the city. The court yard itself and the nearby adjoining streets bear witness to the commitment made by Willie Jack to celebrate the life and characters of this great city and country. Outstanding murals, street signage, Belfast memorabilia and hundreds of old Belfast photos now adorn the streets to make it one of the most “must see” places in the city. Visited by many and missed by few, there is something here for everyone.

Located in the north of the city, the Harp Bar is a proper public house for the discerning drinker, selling crisps, dulse, coffees, independent draught beers and extensive whiskies and at all times “Belfast Craic” with a huge heart. Secondly, it is a live music venue on two floors hosting home-grown talent from the likes of Van Morrison etc. Both of these factors attempt to recreate the once famous “atmosphere” synonymous with its predecessor, the original 1970’s Harp Bar. Call in and you will enjoy a huge welcome from a proper pub with a huge “Belfast Spirit.”
