Berts Jazz Bar
Transport yourself back to the Art Deco glamour of 1930’s New York and the Jazz Age in Belfast’s only dedicated Jazz bar and restaurant: Berts Bar at The Merchant Hotel. Soak up the sophisticated atmosphere and let the cool jazz melodies wash over you. A handpicked list of cocktails completes the extensive drinks selection. A French bistro style menu is complemented by an extensive wine list and, of course, exemplary service.
Berts offers live jazz from 9pm
All Tables reservations are for dining unfortunately we do not take drinks only bookings.
Would recommend this restaurant for an occasion when you want something different ,as it worked out very expensive .Also ,check when the Jazz music performance is on ,we had to vacate our table before it started 😒
Lovely live music, not too obtrusive, fabulous food and service. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, perfect evening
Food was great. The drinks were even better. Didn't have to wait long on the food and the service was on point. Live entertainment too which is good to find on a Tuesday night
Lovely time. The guitarist was excellent and the food was gorgeous. lovely chilled ambience. Will definitely be back!
Food and service were excellent. Definitely recommend to others.
Fantastic night out! Food and entertainment were both excellent. Will definitely be back
A great evening. Food service and entertainment were excellent. I had made an error when booking as only booked for two instead of four and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful in accommodating us.
Well worth a visit.
Everything from the service to the Decor was exceptional! Menu is great, something for everyone but the food.. Oh the food was to die for!! Honestly berts is something special and I can't wait to return.
Had an amazing meal and service at Berts , we were celebrating my parents golden wedding anniversary . All the food was fabulous and our waiter couldn’t have been more attentive. It’s not cheap but you don’t mind paying for food and service of this quality .
Fabulous night. Amazing jazz band. Lovely to watch and listen to talented musicians. Food excellent and service very good. Can’t wait to return
My partner and I had a lovely meal and evening in the jazz bar. The food was lovely and the staff where great. Our waiter (whose name I think was Milo) was great, he explained all that was gluten free on the menu for me and put me at ease that I would receive a meal that was gluten free without having to ask a lot of questions myself to make sure. He was lovely and chatted away to my partner and I, making the whole experience lovely.
Brought my partner out for dinner on her birthday and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Many thanks :-)
Beautiful cocktails, great live music and decor. We did find ourselves waiting (twice) about 10mins with empty glasses trying to flag down a waiter to take a new drinks order though!
Absolutely superb meal, service and overall experience!!!!!!
Very enjoyable evening, friendly staff and excellent musicians! Definitely would return, if in the area again.
Very attentive service by all staff.
We loved celebrating our anniversary at Berts. First time out in a crowded place after Covid and we were very happy with distance between the tables and the h&s arrangements throughout.
Will visit again.
There is not much variety to choose from on the menu. Having to ask the waiters to refill the wine glass sometimes is not pleasant, the bottle was in a corner next to another table where the lady would not stop coughing, something that I did not find acceptable at all. The bottle of wine should have been next to my table.
The vegetarian menu really needs looking at. A Camembert to share as a starter is fine but to add it as a main course is absurd I mean bread and cheese for your main course 🙈
A wonderful welcome. Personal attention. Excellent food and music. Really enjoyed every minute
Really enjoyed our evening, staff, especially Shea, made the evening extra special and looking forward to getting back again.
Fabulous evening at Berts tonight! The service and food were both impeccable. Our waiter was amazing & when he heard it was our sons birthday tomorrow, he organised a beautiful Happy Birthday dessert place for him- so thoughtful. We all can’t wait to return!
This place was amazing, fantastic food and very good size portions for this level of establishment. Good wine selection and fabulous cocktails. It’s not cheap but worth it. The only thing that could have spoiled an exceptional evening was missing the Jazz band. We had a 1700 booking and you get the table for a two hour sitting. The music was meant to start at 2000 ( they were 30 mins late). This was resolved by the restaurant manger getting us a table in the bar area. We stayed for a few more hours and it was a perfect evening.
We love coming here for date nights. The food and drink is always fantastic, great waiting staff and the jazz musicians are incredible. The place has such an original vibe and atmosphere - definitely worth the experience.
We were celebrating a special Birthday &
loved every minute. The food, service & entertainment, was amazing. I have a Sulfite intolerance but I was well looked after. Thank you!
Great food staff couldn’t do enough really enjoyable
Incredible food, lovely setting and great customer service. Highly recommend it to anyone
Definitely coming back soon. The food was very tasty, the band playing was outstanding and Mario was very attentive. 10/10.
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday & we will definitely be back. Can’t fault my evening whatsoever
Our table was only available for one and a half hours, but the food was served promptly, but equally we were not rushed. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, giving helpful recommendations. The food was excellent - we particularly liked the scallops. We look forward to returning, and perhaps getting the 8.30 time slot so we can enjoy the live jazz band experience.
Overall the dining experience was nice, main was good, lemon posset dessert is food from the Gods😋the service was really good, lovely friendly staff who were attentive but not overpowering. My only disappointment was the lack of live Jazz music. I haven’t been to Berts before so presumed as it’s “Berts Jazz Bar”, there would be live music, particularly on a Friday evening. However I would still recommend Berts for dinner, we will definitely be back, especially for the lemon posset 😀
Fantastic evening, music and food were impeccable, great atmosphere with superb service.
Great cocktails, service and music. However the £30 ribeye was unfortunately very disappointing. It tasted slightly off and dry (medium rare)
This was an amazing night out. Every part of it was fantastic. It’s my 2nd visit to the Berts Jazz bar and it was even better than the first time I went.
The atmosphere was lively and service was great as always. Especially super friendly and bubbly Miro and Rachel!
Staff were wonderful and the ambience is fantastic. The food was OK, we were slightly disappointed but we do understand establishments are under pressure due to Covid restrictions/Brexit etc.
Everytime we visits Berts the food & service is consistently outstanding. My absolute favourite restaurant !!
Perfect food, perfect cocktails and the loveliest friendliest staff. Will definitely be back.
Brought my partner here from Canada and the experience was amazing , great atmosphere, attentive service and sublime food.
I cannot proceed to explain how amazing my dinning experience was in Bert’s Jazz Bar and the Cocktail Bar. I went alone to have a business meal and was nervous as I was already running late. The host at the entrance warmly welcomed me and brought me to the table, making me forget about the distress of the day. My lovely servant - Mario, was well knowledgeable about the card, and showed great customer service throughout the whole night. His excellent work deserves big recognition. Firstly we started off with “Isabellini” cocktail. It had a beautiful level of sweetness and the Prosecco bubbles really nicely set the atmosphere, as I was reading the menu card. Mario made some great recommendations, so I couldn’t resist having one of the most popular starters, the baked Camembert to share. Then I followed with soup of the day, which was tomato cream soup with pesto. For the main I had to have the twice baked gruyère and truffle soufflé. Once I was finished with my my food, Mario offered to take me to the cocktail bar upstairs, which also didn’t disappoint. All of the staff was lovely and very kind. I wasn’t aware of their closing hours on a Sunday, but I was gently reminded, instead of rushed to order, which I appreciate. To summarise - if you are looking for exquisite experience, where you will feel and be treated like royalty, this is it. I will definitely be returning when I’m back in town again!
First time to Berts jazz bar.
Everything was brilliant and the service second to none.
Would highly recommend it xx
Absolutely loved it. Food and jazz both fantastic
