Pub Name?
« on: March 20, 2021, 08:34:26 PM »
Does anyone know what the name of this place was when it was a pub? It had a long history of being one but I'm not sure when it ceased. It's on Berry Street, off Royal Avenue that takes you round to Kellys Cellars.

The Strand Bar was in Berry Street mid to late 1960's.

Starr Records address is given as 22 - 24 Berry Street, the same location as the Strand Bar.

I remember the bar being on the first floor.  You entered via a staircase direct from the street.

Yes, that would definitely be the same place then. Thanks for that... much appreciated. Have you any idea when it ceased being the Strand Bar?

That's interesting - so the bar was upstairs and not on the ground level? There is a door with stairs leading to upper floors and also part of the Record Shop. The 1st floor is now a recording and practice space.

There was a doorway in the street which directly accessed a staircase which led to the bar on the first floor.  The last time I visited it was in 1971 when returned to Belfast on holiday.  I lived in Southern England in the 1970's - when I returned for another holiday several years later it was gone.
