Belfast’s much-loved Bullitt Hotel reopens its doors today with exciting renovations, new rooms and menus and a relaunch party with DJs on the decks all weekend long, after being closed since March 2022. The four-star hotel located in the heart of Belfast’s city centre was dearly missed by locals and tourists alike, since closing due to a fire earlier this year.


Named after the Steve McQueen movie, Bullitt returns with the same cool, vibrant and contemporary vibe that guests have enjoyed since its opening in 2016.

Guests can enjoy some exciting new additions to the hotel, including the introduction of the brand new ‘Biggy’ Rooms, Bullitt’s alternative version of a suite. Whether it’s a quick stop over or a longer stay, Bullitt reopening means guests can lay their heads in a room perfect for them with a range of styles to choose from, including the Dinky, Comfy, Roomy and now Biggy rooms.

Known for a no-nonsense philosophy, Bullitt’s Biggy rooms are the biggest of the bunch at 35sq m and perfect if you fancy a little more space. Guests can kick back, stick on the record player or connect your smartphone and turn up the amp. Each room is fitted with everything guests could possibly need including a SMEG mini fridge stocked with complimentary drinks and snacks, a double walk-in shower and a Nespresso machine for that caffeine fix.

Speaking on reopening day, Beannchor Managing Director, Conall Wolsey said:

“We are thrilled to see this day arrive and finally reopen the doors of Bullitt Hotel once again. The closure gave us some time to innovate and renovate parts of the hotel including upgrading rooms, menus, special offers and entertainment packages.

“The Bullitt team is a close-knit community which was missed over the past four months, but we are delighted to have all staff back onsite again and ready to welcome the return of our much-loved and missed guests.”

The reopening of Bullitt sees a return of Belfast’s ever-popular speakeasy, cocktail bar Rattlebag, where guests can enjoy cool tunes and slick interiors alongside an innovative rotating cocktail menu. Also making a comeback is the award-winning restaurant Taylor & Clay, which boasts an open kitchen built around an incredible Asador wood-fired grill, on which our new menu was designed around.

The boutique hotel also has a host of exciting events and collaborations featuring popular local talents lined up for the relaunch, including a courtyard party this weekend, Marion from Sound Advice Belfast for a laid-back Balearic adventure on Friday 12 August and a funky, avant-garde return of Iain McCready with support from Chris Frieze and Never Never on Saturday 20 August.

In the Bullitt lobby, the Sound Advice Pop-up record display has been updated as well as adding a new pop-up magazine display, collaborating with local online lifestyle magazine store Iris, where guests can read, return or buy their favourites.

Bullitt Hotel is undertaking further renovations to its rooftop bar, which plans to reopen in the Autumn with some very exciting changes and new concepts.
