Pictured: Panoramic views of Belfast's new rooftop bar Babel

Belfast's newest bar, Babel, opened its doors over the weekend.

Now the largest rooftop bar and garden in Ireland, the site is part of a £1.75m expansion of city centre hotel, Bullitt.

The new space in Ann Street includes an indoor bar; an open-air terrace with panoramic views and a retractable roof; and a corner VIP room. 

Taking inspiration from 1950s and ‘60s design, the eclectic decor emulates the Mad Men era, with plush velvet and leather interiors in a deep green, ocean blue and bubble gum pink colour scheme.

The drinks menu features an range of Shrub Cocktails, using a fresh supply of herbs from a living wall as ingredients and garnishes for the drinks.

Commenting on the opening, Conall Wolsey, director of owners Beannchor, said: “Bullitt marks its first anniversary with the opening of Babel.

"The venue is a perfect hangout space, with a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere and stunning views across the city in every direction. 

“Our vision for the hotel was for it to be a place where people could work, relax and socialise and the new rooftop bar adds to this offering, transforming a formerly unused space into a vibrant new venue in the heart of the city centre."
