[b:9d76087376]What is Ollie's at the Merchant Hotel like?[/b:9d76087376] The Swing Dance club takes place in the converted bank vaults of what was once the headquarters of the historic Ulster Bank. The bank was built in 1860 and is now a grade one listed building and has been restored as a five star hotel in the heart of Belfast's arts sector.
It is an intimate and plush venue, perfect for those jazzy underground sounds of the thirties, forties and fifties
