Kind of a hidden gem, it's down a back lane near the Glasgow Central train station. We went after a gig and stayed for the beers. Unusual place for that part of the town as the other pubs and bars nearby seemed to be either...More

Went in for drinks and its a nice wee place. Decent music and good beers. It's kind of grungy and quite hip without being intimidating. Worth a visit if you are into music and a like a bar with a lively, buzzing atmosphere.

Been here a good few times and really like it. The decor is not to everyones taste which i get, but it doesnt pretend to be an upmarket bar so you cant judge it like a standard place. Its more of a quirky venue and...More

This bar is very central but is tucked away so you don't feel you're in the middle of a major city. Interesting building, good lager, and many of the tables are near power sockets for your phone/laptop, so lots of people were working/using the internet...More

I only recently discovered this place and can't stay away. It reminds me of ruins bars in Eastern Europe in that it's pretty shabby and really doesn't care. Drinks selection is really good considering the size of the bar space and the place just has...More

Not sure what we were expecting really, this bar is either derelict or has taken shabby chic to a new level. The bar is accessed down an alley which is less than inviting, the bar is undecorated and the tables are old school desks, the...More

Place is basic & 'rustic'. Prices fairly average for city bar. A small & cosy place, small bar which can take a little long to be served when as busy as it was this Friday night. Note - they DO NOT accept cards so cash...More
