Over the years the much loved meeting point has played host to a vast array of famous faces from the Dalai Lama to the Rolling Stones.
The majestic building was even used as a dance hall providing entertainment for the US troops based in the province during World War II.
Now, the last 150 years are set to be celebrated in style on Saturday night with a very special concert performed by the Ulster Orchestra.
The orchestra will be joined by Belfast City Organist Colm Carey to perform Haydn`s exuberant D major Concerto as well as Jongen`s thrilling Symphonie Concertante.
The well respected musician will be playing the Mullholland Grand Organ - the Ulster Hall's oldest resident and arguably Northern Ireland's most famous instrument.
He told UTV: "It's marvelous to be able to play with the Orchestra. It's always a great privilege and great fun. I always think of the Ulster Hall as the cultural soul of the city.
"Everything happens here. Everyone you speak to has had some sort of experience in the hall - whether it's a beer festival, a boxing match, classical music, pop music. You name it - it all happens here."
A wide range of events have been held so far to celebrate the anniversary from Jubilee tea dances to the world premiere of the movie Good Vibrations.
Jan Carson, from the Ulster Hall, said that the highlights over the years included the Victorian era writer Charles Dickens performing readings in 1867 and 1869 and Led Zeppelin performing the hit song Stairway to Heaven for the very first time in the early Seventies.
She said that "the building's history is entwined with peoples stories."
