A fun, local watering hole frequented by the LGBT crowd, but mixed and welcoming to all. I stopped in on a week night and enjoyed the selection of eighties tunes playing. Everyone knew the words and were singing along and jumping up to dance wherever they could find a spot. There was a birthday party, a bachelorette party, and lots... More

Called in early afternoon, and the bar was already busy with a great atmosphere, plenty of banter and laughter. Good staff, good choice of beers and a central location only a few minutes walk from Central Station. Will call again

Myself & my better half popped in for a drink before returning to our hotel, but funnily enough once we were caught up in the atmosphere & friendliness of the staff & other customers we stayed for a few more! Great pub which just finished the night for both of us.

Came here for a quick drink on a Sunday evening. Definitely busier than I thought it would be at that time. Good range of beers and cocktails. Friendly service. Old looking pub from the outside but definitely young clientele inside. Seems to be a good place if you like a party atmosphere. Located near central station.

Friendly staff, cheap drinks, excellent music! I've been there a month ago when I've visited Glasgow and I felt in love with this bar/pub. All the best!

This is a no nonsense traditional Glasgow gay pub. However, this bar is welcoming to all either gay, straight small, tall, fat or thin. The clientele was a mixture of life itself. The bar was rammed, the music was superb and the drinks were flowing and cheap ... Best night in ages.

Rolled up on a Wednesday night (8.30pm) after checking into a local hotel whilst on business....singing, duck racing (yes duck racing) lights and laughs... Seem like a fun bar....don't knock it until you've tried it.

Great gay pub open early afternoon for a pint and a rest when out touring Glasgow, friendly crowd and bartender, an interesting and well-done interior space.
