I visited the waterloo bar with four friends in Glasgow, it is a gay bar but we had such a fantastic time, was not made to keel unwelcome, The guys were fantastic and chatty and we felt safe, one of the best evenings I have had.

A quick drink on way home in a most agreable friendly pub. A good selection of beers and excellent friendly staff. Clean and crisp with a good varied friendly clientele in the city centre - great

Why Oh why in this day and age does the Waterloo Bar not accept card payments . The majority of bars have realised this is a convient way for customers to pay and at the same time generate extra revenue for the bar like most others have done

Great music, friendly people. This is a gay bar, but everyone was made to feel welcome. Would recommend to anybody who is in the area. Also this bar was next door to the hotel that we stayed in,making it handy to roll home!

Visited here for the first time prior to going to an Erasure gig and I must say it was an enjoyable visit and thoroughly enjoyed the music. Friendly bar staff, great pint and decent clientele. Our friend Chris Jewell enjoyed the experience so much it is now his regular local.

I popped in for a G&T before a dinner date and I must say that the barman was absolutely charming and very well mannered. Had I not been going for dinner I would have stayed longer.
