Bullitt Belfast: Sneak peek at city's new hotel and ski-themed bar
Owners of The Merchant Hotel will open their newest venture, Bullitt Belfast, on Saturday.
The hotel has been developed by the Beannchor Group who are behind the city’s five-star Merchant Hotel, The National Grande Café/sixty6, The Dirty Onion, Little Wing Pizzeria and over 40 pubs across Northern Ireland.
The hotel on Church Lane will feature 43 stylish bedrooms, three bars (including Baltic, Northern Ireland’s first ski-themed bar), a courtyard garden, 58-seater restaurant ‘Taylor and Clay’, an Espresso bar and a versatile private events space
Named after the Steve McQueen movie of the same name, Bullitt, the owner's say, will be a vibrant new concept that will provide a cool new space for people to 'work, play and stay' in the heart of the city.
Beannchor director Conall Wolsey said: "Bullitt will offer so much more than just a bed for the night, it will also be a place where people can work, relax and socialise.
"It will be a space for meetings, coffee and lunch during the day and a place to meet and mingle over cocktails and food at night, with an eclectic calendar of events for both locals and visitors to enjoy."
The hotel will create 100 new jobs when it opens.
