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.

It was Tuesday evening, not much rush, nice location, behind our Art to hotel, value for money. Handle by one single person. Good fast service. Lot of variety, cocktails, beers, hot drinks. Good package for group and party giver.

Everything about this bar is great. Value for money, Entertainment, Helpful bar staff and friendly customers. Atmosphere is excellent I don't normally write reviews as visited lots of pubs / bars over the years and most of them are good however this has the additional 'wow' factor.

I've been there twice so far in the past three years and I must say that I do like it. It has attentive staff, nice atmosphere and a friendly sociable clientele. Definetely going there next time I visit Glasgow. He only suggestion I'd like to make to the bar staff/management is perhaps to lower the music's volume a little bit.... More
