On arrival, the older barman (who saw us enter to a fairly empty bar) walked through the back and started to collect glasses. No acknowledgement or even a limp hello. By the time he had came back through another customer had entered the bar and he was served before us even though it was obvious he wasn't first. When we were served (by a girl who was v nice) we sat at the bar and within minutes were swarmed by wee tiny flies that turned out to be everywhere. Drank up quickly and left to never return. Do yourself a favour and go into ANY other bar on Argyle street.

Was up in Glasgow for business and was looking for somewhere to get a wee nip. Found the this place was just around the corner from the hotel. Great atmosphere ,very friendly and more whiskys than you could ever want. The bar staff were very helpful in helping you choose your favorite tipple. Just remember not all whiskys are the same price.Had a great night and they even served a really good pint on McEwans 80 shilling .

Just finished seeing the Transport Museum and decided to go to town for a meal.
We were quite hungry but were told there was no menu because it was just a bar. How ever we were offered a pie or bridy and beans. That was what we were after anyway so with a couple of beer and conversation with the land lady about gardening we were well satisfied. Would have liked to have gone again later to get a feel for the atmosphere and a few of the scotches but that will have to be another time.

If Douglas Adams had written about a bar this would be it. The haunt of Glasgow's thriving marketing community and D list Scottish comedians. All actively seeking a new career challenge. All more than happy to pay through the nose for flat beer out of a dirty glass.
It is a parody of itself. Tiny and tired it boasts a bar wall full of bottles of Whisky.
Sells no food. But craves attention.

Not my cup of char but always seems busy enough so it must be doing something right.

Just popped in for a quick pint on the way to my hotel one afternoon after seeing the 'free house' above the door. Very nicely furnished bar area and decent whisky collection, how they get the ones down from the top I don't know!?!?! Nice friendly atmosphere although only a few locals in at the time. Great pint too, I imagine it would even better in the evenings! Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
