Nice place for drinks

Had a fantastic night last night, staff very friendly, good choice of drinks food OK but nothing special. Having left however it was impossible to get back in due to the old guy on the door who decided that I was not welcome after I had left. If you ask him I was a single man just out for a... More

The lay out of the bar is amazing!! Don't get me wrong I'm not a huge fan of numerous flights of stairs when drinking alcohol and wearing high heels... It's dangerous enough without the alcohol! But this place was great. Very imaginative. I'll definitely be back.

A decent enough bar or bars spread over several floors. You would need a map to find your way about the different levels. A good mix of Beers and a decent mix of spirits enough to keep every body happy. The bar was quiet so the staff had time to chat and were friendly and helpful Going to the toilet... More

This place is so big - seems like it never ends - but the rooms are all different and seems like you are in a different bar in each one. There was live music in one room, televisions on in another, quiet in other rooms. The décor is unique and required several pictures to be taken.

Attempted to visit this pub as usual after the Glasgow v Ulster rugby match as I have many times before however was denied entry due to my wearing Glasgow warriors colours, was told if I covered my top up I would be allowed in. Found this very poor for a pub which plays on its association with the rugby.

We ate at this restaurant on a Sunday night, it was surprisingly quiet, The decor was so unique all around the restaurant/pub, the food was great and the service was also very good. Would definitely return if i visited Glasgow again.

Told we had enough to drink not allowed in, as we hadn't had much to drink we removed Ulster tops and went back less than 10 Mins later. Allowed entry. Please explain your entry policy??

Ate here. Loved the decor and the layout. I ordered the pork and guiness sausages. Seemed to have been cooked in the microwave with rubbery pale skins. Pretty tasteless and with no texture appeared to be heavily processed. Won't have them again.
