Small bar in the town centre which is a shrine to whisky, I often call in here before heading out in the town for the night. The staff are great and you don’t wait log to get served with the guys having their kilts on adding to the Scottish feel of the place. The bar is fairly small and really not renowned for its food but you can get eats if you want to extend your stay and sample the numerous fine malts on offer. I live fairly local but still find it a pleasure walking in to this pub.

Great little bar in the centre of Glasgow. If you're a whiskey lover, this is a must. The staff are very well informed and knowledgeable about whiskey, which is stacked floor to ceiling. They help out, suggestes and recommends whiskeys according to your own tastes and demands. Slightly pricey, but definitely worth every penny. Clientele are from all walks of life, and there's a very festive atmosphere.

We decided to go to the Pot Still pub and had a great time. The bar lady was very informative and knew her whiskeys well. I told her what we liked and she immediately knew what to offer us. The bar itself was small and cozy and offered a lot of character. It was quite busy and had an excellent atmosphere. The only negative was that they didn't clean our table but it did not affect the overall visit.

Arriving in the Pot Still sometime after 9pm on a Friday evening we were unable to find seats in such a small pub but everyone in our party of ten was very impressed. Despite being very busy as expected the bar service was prompt and efficient with no problems supplying us with Bunnahabhain 12yo and some rather nice pints of Deuchar's IPA. The atmosphere in the pub was relaxed and friendly with a mixed clientelle. I got speaking to a young German student there with his parents as well as the usual banter with the Glasgow locals. I've been here ma'ny times in the past but it was the first visit by my nine companions who were very impressed. The huge range of whiskies is of course the main attraction but the Pot Still is a very cosy, informal, friendly place with great staff and a great atmosphere. If you're in Glasgow, go there.

A unique experience in a world of formula bars, pubs etc.....
I was taken to Pot Still by a local and what a pleasure, if you have a limited interest in whiskey you will certainly come away better informed and more enthusiatic. Equally if you are a hardened whiskey drinker you will not be disappointed.
