In the beating heart of the city, the refined Fitzwilliam Hotel is all about style. You notice it from the moment you step into one of the sleek, ultra-modern rooms, with its soft carpets in geometric designs, feature mirrors and mosaic-tiled bathrooms.
Upgrade to a signature room and soak your cares away in the rainfall shower before wrapping up in your complimentary robe and slippers and sinking into the super king-sized bed. Or choose a suite where you can linger over the newspapers in your plush private sitting area or soak in the freestanding bath.
Make your next stop the restaurant, which combines creative fine dining with vibrant contemporary design. Settle into an intimate, red leather booth surrounded by blond wood and warm lighting. Dishes use local produce to create bold flavours with delicate presentation: expect creations such as potted crab from Kilkeel with local scampi, confit tomato and compressed fennel or a deconstructed lemon meringue cheesecake.
Round off the evening with a nightcap at the hotel bar. Luxurious dark wood, intimate booths and hip copper accents create a lively and elegant environment. Expert mixologists can craft you an innovative cocktail in real crystal glasses: try a Bluebell, with vodka, blueberry Juice, cinnamon syrup and lemon juice, or a warming Honey Mackinnon, combining Drambuie, lemon juice, honey and ginger, topped with smoky Laphroaig whiskey.
If you’ve got an appetite for more nightlife, Belfast city centre is on your doorstep. Pop to the Grand Opera House next door for musicals, comedy and dance, stroll to the Harp Bar for some live music or head to Apartment where you can sip prosecco while floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the grand Belfast City Hall.
