Belfast Bullitt Hotel set to be city's newest hotspot after October opening
Hotel set to bring 100 jobs to Belfast
Owners of The Merchant Hotel are aiming to have their newest venture Bullitt open this October and they are hoping it will be the city's newest hotspot as well as the newest place for visitors to stay.
The Bullitt 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.
Originally the new hotel had been due to open in the spring.
As construction of the new hotel steps up a gear, media were given a first sneak peek of the property, which wraps Victoria Street and Ann Street with a guided hard hat tour on Tuesday.
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.
The complex features 43 bedrooms, three bars (including Baltic, Northern Ireland’s first ski-themed bar), a courtyard garden, 68-seater restaurant ‘Taylor and Clay’, an espresso bar and a private event space.
The hotel will also create 100 new jobs when it opens.
Beannchor director Conall Wolsey said: "Our vision for Bullitt is to create a new and exciting hospitality concept. The hotel 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. Also on offer will be an eclectic calendar of events for both locals and visitors to enjoy.
"We’re proud to be creating 100 new jobs that will offer employees a unique and exciting opportunity to work in an innovative setting and to become part of our business, which creates meaningful and rewarding long-term careers.”
