Cheap eating and drinking makes Belushi’s a heaven for young locals and tourists alike.
Split into two areas with the stairs to the St Christopher’s Inn hostel placed right in the middle, Belushi’s spreads over two rooms with large windows looking on Market Street. A mixture of fashionable wallpaper and cool murals covers the walls and it looks like the perfect haunt for a young crowd. They also screen all sorts of sporting events.
It can be difficult to draw the line between the hostel and the bar. As both share the same building (and toilets) you may have to wait for people to check in at the bar counter before being able to order. The crowd is made of hostel guests but not exclusively so although you might have to negotiate your way through the suitcases you may also hear some local accents.
Grabbing a bite could not be cheaper and easier, well, as long as all the guests have checked in and out leaving the bartender free to take orders. Snacks, including small hot dishes, are based on world cuisine favourites nicely priced between £4 and £10. There's a Texan style steak plus chilli con carne, lemon and herb chicken and other flavourful dishes aimed at their travel weary and hungry clientele.
Drinks are super cheap. Cocktails cost around £4 each or £11 for a jug and are mostly classics with some unusual names thrown in, like the 69er. They're cheap for a reason so don't expect the quality of a top bar but they're still quaffable. Shooters cost just £2 and wine is also available priced at just £10.50 a bottle. Beers are made up of the usual suspects plus Miller. Anything else? A long list of nicely priced spirits!
The Last Word
With cheap drink deals and happy hours held most days even the smallest budget won't be left without an alcohol fix and a bite to eat.
