Reviewed January 29, 2018 via mobile

Walked in after 2 pints across the road, bouncers were totally fine, walked up to the bar with 4 friends , the owner decided I wasn’t welcome because I didn’t look gay enough!! Even the bouncer who escorted me from the premises apologised, he had to do his job and she was the owner .... turn the tables and imagine a gay person being thrown out because he looked too gay ... this ruined not only my night but my friends night

So we were really looking forward to a night out in glasgow and a rare visit to the Waterloo it’s been a long time since I’ve been there opting for the younger trendier speak easy at the other side of the city centre, our good friend Steven one of two celebrating his birthday however had really wanted to go there as it’s his usual haunt, it’s not often myself or the birthday girl get out as we both have health issues with my friends seeing her spend months on hospital this year.

Well the night in the Waterloo never happened, the door person decided that my friend was drunk, my friend actually had mobility issues and has problems with her eyes but the Bouncer knows it all, complete arrogance and lack of understanding for people with disabilities, having been out for a meal and then going to hotel to get ready we hadn’t actually had a single drink before going out and total use of language from the said female doorperson was uncalled for

Will not be going back and be ensuring my friends all know I won’t be setting foot back there and no doubt they will happily follow me elsewhere
