Claiming the title of Glasgow's oldest bar and restaurant, Sloans is a great, multi-purpose venue on Argyle Street. From its snug to its grand ballroom, this Central Glasgow bar is flooded with character. Nestled down a lane off Buchanan Street, Sloans is inviting from the outset, with old stone whitewashed walls and tables spilling out onto the street. Inside, three floors are lovingly maintained with antique features befitting the 200 year-old bar, old wooden pub decor in the snug bar, vintage light fittings in the restaurant and to parquet flooring in the ballroom. 

With a long history of hosting celebrations, Sloans cater for everything from birthday parties to weddings, but be sure to make it down on a Friday night - the weekly ceilidh is legendary. Live sport, music sessions, pub quizzes, weekend markets and movie nights all fill out the schedule at this bustling Glasgow bar. The crowd here are a lively bunch, looking for a comfortable, friendly place, to meet friends. Food at Sloans covers a broad spectrum with brunch offers, bistro classics and gastro pub goodies too, while the bar is fully stocked with spirits, wines and beers.

Sloans - Glasgow Bar Review

Sloans - Glasgow Bar Review

Glasgow's oldest bar, Sloans, is a little piece of history just tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Argyle Street. Serving gastro classics and known for their weekly markets and ceilidhs, this Glasgow bar is so much more than a watering hole...

Controversial, but I have left time and time again being disappointed by the food and have found it overpriced..much better locations dotted across the city. The 'famous' Mac N cheese left me disappointed. For drinking, I have thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the bar, filled with locals and tourists alike, however I have struggled to get served a few times. Sloans seem to take great pride in encouraging various events and stalls on the weekend..certainly worth a wee visit. I've still to attend the Ceilidh though, which sounds incredible! Go for drinks and craic, but go for food, go elsewhere.

Went for a fantastic birthday lunch in Sloans and couldn't fault it. The food was delish, had a couple of drinks, i had a really enjoyable day and would happily recommend.

I adore this bar, the market at the weekend is great and so are their Eat Film nights. I've only been to the ceilidh once but it was one of the funnest nights I've had in Glasgow. Great food too, as I said, I adore this bar!!!
