can you bambu?: "bambu beach" Belfast Nightlife Tip by catherineneill

Belfast Nightlife: 56 reviews and 54 photos

now when i was a young thing (2+ years ago) we went to bambu EVERY thursday nightsm and most saturday nights as well. thursday is student night - £2 entry and £2 drinks all night. we though it was great becasue it played rnb and we were sick of dance music. everyone from our school went, the music was cheesy and you wouldn't get wet if you went outside, becasue it was in the odyssey arena.

HOWEVER. i returned from germany a few weeks ago and decided to take a look at the place with my old crowd. so we went. the place was full of wee kids who were in 3rd year when we were in upper sixth! they all thought they were gorgeous, they all bumped into us and didnt apologise, it was packed, the floor was sticky, the queues for toilets and cloakrooms were ridiculous, the music is worse (they played men in black and the backstreet boys 3 times)

we were not impressed. but we are older now i suppose, so for the 16-19 age group- but they cant get in!! actually if you are a girl in a short skirt you'll get in. if you are a boy of any description you will find it hard getting in!

Dress Code: so the girls are all wearing short skirts and skimpy tops. i saw a girl walking around in a bikini and she was NOT one of the staff because she was drinking and had a handbag.
dressy casual. no trainers, skull caps or football shirts, but that goes without saying.
