WORK x PLAY [No. 2]
Call it a meet up, another networking event, or an excuse to enjoy a decent drink on a weekday, Work x Play is a gathering of like minded individuals getting together for the sake of sharing knowledge, networks, ideas, and good times. So we called on our friends, colleagues, and clients, to join us for our second Work x Play at Belfast Love.
From the refined pub fare, eclectic tap list and whisky bar, to the lush and well decked interior, Belfast Love treated us to an experience that was none the less that of "a proper pub".
Although this was their first Summer, Belfast's patio is well recognized as the newest happening spot on King West to enjoy a local brew and catch the game. Step inside and you're welcomed by the glistening taps (featuring over 40 draughts). You're free to get comfortable in the more intimate dining area, step up to the bar, head over to the whisky and billiard room or situate yourself among the scattered communal tables. For such a large space, with a capacity of nearly 400, the atmosphere feels much more homey as it's quite localized around the different spacial sections around the main bar, creating a feeling of coziness not unlike that of a traditional Irish pub.
Diving into the menu, we feasted on an assortment of share plates that included the Citrus Cauliflower with a lemon, honey, jalapeno vinagrette, the Local Sausage Plate with Punched Fries and artisanal mustards, and the Chorizo Pizza. We suggest bringing your appetite as the food was a big highlight, and left us wanting to try more. Options varied from the lighter fare such as the Spicy Rare Tuna Salad or Summer Squash Sandwich, to the expected comfort foods like the Rotisserie Chicken and yes, Chicken and Waffles.
Above all, our service was absolutely outstanding! Staff was very attentive and pleasant, food and drink details were executed seamlessly and with care, and we truly felt welcomed. It made for a genuine and unique pub experience worth coming back for, again and again.
