Looking for a social club/local bar..
« on: January 04, 2014, 12:35:08 AM »
Hi there !

 Just moved to Belfast and so far I'm enjoying the experience !

 I like Belfast- but it's my first time away from
home and to live in a city- I find the people in work and the city very friendly but
I would just like to spend more time with them socialising and making friends ! I get
a bit lonely now and again because being in a ,work-> go home to a bedsit, routine every
day and not knowing anyone gets depressing.

 Weekends and holidays like Christmas were especially long. I go to nightclubs, and they are
fun- but you don't really get to know people the way you do in pubs.
I tried doing the pub thing first at weekends here, but going out at 8pm in city pubs is a long night
and people seem to stick together alot in these places, so found it difficult.

 I guess what I'm looking for is sort of a pub where I can become a 'local/regular'. Some place that is a pub for
locals but is welcoming of "people wanting to become locals". It's really the social
element of the pub I would like to have- more than hard drinking!
 
 I was thinking some place like a social club perhaps, I seen one called "Northern Ireland Supporters Club"-
can anyone walk in of the street for a pint to that place or do you have to be a member?

 Other ones I read about were "CCC" or 3 C's club - is this place still going? I couldn't see it down the city at all?

 Seen another place on the Lisburn Road called "Windsor Snooker & Recreation"- Is this place ok? The way it's done
up makes it look like Fort Knox !

 Can anyone recommend any other social clubs?

 Also, how do you know if these places are neutral/ok , or otherwise ?

 Part of my problem is the fear of walking into one of these places on my own !

 I live in the Hollylands, but I'm willing to travel to get to a friendly place!

 You help would really be appreciated !

I'm from the republic originally, lived there all my life before recently moving to Belfast for work.

Thanks for that Moondog40 ! I thought nobody was going to help me out - everyone went quiet lol!
Much appreciated ! I will drop in for a pint and see what I think !

Cheap pints are always a plus too ! :)
