    Property Description

    Pat's Bar & the Rotterdam Bar


    The subject property is situated just north of Belfast City Centre, immediately adjacent to the Clarendon Dock / City Quays developments, now regarded as one of Belfast's premier business locations whilst it is also within close proximity to the Cathedral Quarter and the expanding University of Ulster City Campus, at York Street.

    The immediate area is witnessing significant development with the Belfast Harbours City Quays scheme, comprising a fully let c. 69,000 sq ft Grade A office building at City Quays 1, a c. 95,000 sq ft Grade A office building under construction at City Quays 2, whilst construction of a new 4 star Marriott Hotel is due to commence shortly.

    Occupiers in the immediate locality include Belfast Harbour Commissioners, Baker & McKenzie, Capita, Grant Thornton, Lagan Group and The Belfast Telegraph.


    The subject property comprises two vacant former public houses, the Rotterdam Bar and Pat’s Bar, situated on a site of approximately 0.13 acres (0.05ha) accessed via Pilot Street and Princes Dock Street.

    Both buildings are two storey with single storey rear returns leading to an enclosed yard and are bounded by the James Clow Apartment Building and Barrow Square, Clarendon Dock. Pat’s Bar previously provided direct pedestrian access onto Barrow Square.

    The buildings are currently in disrepair and therefore lend themselves to refurbishment or redevelopment for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary consents.

    Pats Bar: 
    Ground 2,027 sq ft (188.35m²)

    Total: 3,172 (294.69m²)

    Access to 1st floor was unavailable.
