Anthology NI Ltd
Owns and manages a number of entertainment venues within Belfast City that includes:
Kremlin opened it's doors in March 1999 in a blaze of publicity. Previously the Penny Farthing, the small, sedate public bar was transformed into a disco bar, members lounge and a club room at the back.
In November 2000, the members lounge was remodelled as Tsar, a lavish public bar at the front of the building. This was followed by the club room being extended to become Red Square, Kremlin's arena style club room.
October 2005 saw the largest single investment in the gay community in Ireland, with the combined redevelopment of the entire venue in a multi million pound project. In phase one, the Long Bar and Tsar Cocktail Bar were completely rebuilt, with new second levels added. In phase two this mezzanine was further expanded, adding a second floor area to Red Square, complete with additional bars.
Union Street Bar & Restaurant
Opened its doors first as a bar in December 2003 with the restaurant following in January 2004. It was originally a Victorian shoe factory, and still retains its original wrought iron pillars and date plaques. It’s that touch of antiquity that fuses with modern loft styling to create a venue that’s as comfortably for a quiet drink during the day as it is putting on outrageous entertainment by night. In 2005 an additional venue was added, The Shoe Factory, a self contained staged nightclub which provides the ideal setting for larger entertainment events.
In Union Street, the main downstairs area focuses around it’s long zinc bar, with modern furnishings around old roaring fires.
