We were only in Glasgow for one night, so inquired about a good Pub, and The Horse Shoe Bar was recommended. Upon arrival it was very apparent this was a popular place. One gentleman at the bar said "you're not from Glasgow, are you?" - quite obvious by the camera and a map we were carrying! We walked around the "longest bar in Europe"--very impressive--and found two available seats at one of the side tables. The decor and the noise of the crowd was definitely the atmosphere we were looking for in a Pub. Not knowing they didn't serve food after 7:00pm, we missed out on staying for Karaoke upstairs and returned to our hotel for dinner. However, we had a great time while we were there, and now know to arrive earlier the next time.

Love visiting the Horseshoe Bar for loads of reasons
Full of Glaswegian character, great atmosphere , show the footy and the first place got a kiss from my gf but there's a few things that need updated around the place

Firstly check out my photos of the gents toilet downstairs disgusting , broken glass everywhere and a mirror held onto the wall with gaffa tape.
This is a world famous pub with travelers coming from all over the world to visit , not to mention stars coming into it aswell so please do something regarding that.
Also when in on a Sunday night when the karaoke is in full swing in the bar upstairs, females down in the bar have to go upstairs to go to the toilet as there is no lavatory in the downstairs bar surely this should be addressed

Always mobbed during big football games, the Horseshoe boasts the longest bar in Europe, and it needs it. A wee band called Travis launched their careers from the rooms above this bar, and its proximity to Glasgow Central station makes it convenient for a swift pint before your journey.
