An Orange Order spokesperson said 'paint bombs' were thrown at Clifton Street Orange Hall, near Carlisle Circus during the early hours of Monday morning.
The attack comes after Saturday's Loyal Order parade in Belfast to mark the centenary of the signing of the Ulster Covenant.
Belfast County Grand Master, Tom Haire, condemned the actions of those responsible, claiming such alleged sectarian incidents were now becoming "almost a weekly occurrence".
He also accused republicans of attempting to raise tensions in the area.
The senior Orangeman appealed for anyone with information regarding the attack to pass it on to the police as a matter of urgency.
A spokesperson for the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland also expressed regret at the incident.
Police have received a report of the incident and ask for anyone with information to contact police at Antrim Road.
