The Observatory is the Grand Central’s jewel. An awe-inspiring cocktail lounge with spectacular, unique views of Belfast and beyond. From pavement to panorama, this is the tallest bar in all of Ireland – and it makes for an extraordinary experience. The decadent décor combined with the stunning vistas make the inside feel intimate, and the outside infinite. It’s the eyes over the city that gives this bar its out-of-this-world air.
