5 reviews of Black Box in English
Black Box covers a really wide range of events, music, art, poetry, literature, comedy etc etc, so the choice of things to do changes from week to week. The selection at the bar is good, I think it must have improved since the first reviewer here, great pints of the black stuff. And great pizza slices in the cafe have saved me many a night!
went to some of the events at the recent Out To Lunch festival (lunchtime show and a bowl of stew for £5!!) and there seemed to be all ages at the show from 18 to 80! so i didn't get the feeling of s students union.
Loads goin on here, at the centre of the Cathedral Quarter down the town - definitely one of my favourite venues in Belfast. People working there are sound, and you're always guaranteed an alternative night out. Plenty of choice at the bar, a few foreign beers and (a key consideration) decent pints of Guinness. It does exactly what it says on the tin - its basically 4 black walls & a stage. The cafe & pizzeria 'next door' (its within the same building) is nice and relaxed, and easy on the pocket. Was there for New Years Eve and after a few pints of Guinness the massive slices were like manna from heaven!
Loads of arts events are held here, the Out to Lunch festival in January and Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (check cqaf.com) hold plenty of events, lots of bang for yer buck!
This newish venue has a great range of arts events happening throughout the year from children’s stuff to bands to poetry readings and more. The only downside is that it does have the feel of a Student’s union and the choice at the bar isn’t that great.
