Nobody mentioned the Spanish rooms,  great bar.
If you don't do it you won't get caught.

hmmmm, probably the Pound for entertainment, The Botanic Inn  for finding out about parties,The Big House  and The Morning Star for a pub feeling and the Four winds...there ..Five favourites of which I would only visit the Morning Star nowadays.
       My two favourites were out of town. .72-75 was big bad bomb time for pubs and we went out of town taking turns to drive...so, Grace Neills where we sang out hearts out and got free beer for it and The White Horse in Saintfield for chat.....The Lakeside Inn near Shrigley was great.
  Ach, in its best days the Harbour Bar in Newcastle was  unbeatable O0

G Man
Where exactly is the Morning Star?  There is a bar I called  into one night alone and I felt a bit uncomfortable in it. It may have been that bar. :-\ :-\  But the Deers Head also rings a bell.  This was about ten years ago  I know it was in the vicinity of Lower North Street

  sat/afternoons  downstairs in the elbow room, sat/nights in the lounge,

  Downtown, mostly the Capstan on ann st and the fountain.

A group of us regularly called into the Capstan for soup, sandwiches and liquid refreshment in the early sixties. They were a mixture of people who worked in town and students at Queens. A number were keen sailors ... some sailed on the Belfast Lough and others on the Strangford Lough.

That's because very few people who drank there can recall the experience   ;D ;D. I remember Scrumpy at 1s 2d per pint, and not much else  8) ;D ;D ;D ;D

Looking at the pic G.  That does not seem like the same bar I am speaking of.  I must give that one a try O0

I wonder if that would be Ten Square Boutique Hotel also known as Bar Red Bar and Grill.
