Popular Belfast venue submits plans for new rooftop bar
A POPULAR Belfast bar is the latest in the city to announce expansion plans, which include a new rooftop bar.
Love & Death on Ann Street submitted plans earlier this month for a roof terrace, which includes a bar, toilets and a escape stairwell.
The cocktail bar and nightclub opened on the upper floors of its Ann Street premises in 2010 and sits above Little Wing pizzeria, which opened a year earlier. The building was previously the home of the Capstan Bar in the 1990s.
MACLAD Ltd submitted the planning application on August 3 proposing the expansion, with approval now sought from Belfast City Council.
The expansion at Love and Death is the latest in Belfast, which has seen a host of refurbishments announced already this year including the £500,000 transformation of the Apartment Bar into Irish American style venue 'Hell Cat Maggie's', the new Pug Uglys pub at the former Morrison's Bar on Bedford Street and the £300,000 renovation of of the former House Pub and Kitchen on Stranmillis Road to create The Jeggy Nettle.
Meanwhile earlier this year the refurbished McCracken's Bar at Joys Entry re-opened as new venues Henry's and the Jailhouse following a £1m investment and in October the Downey Group opened popular bar and beer garden, The Thirsty Goat on the corner of Hill Street and Waring Street in the thriving Cathedral Quarter.
