Waxy O'Connor's Glasgow

1 user reviews

Waxy O'Connors is about a 20 second walk from George Square and the location means that it's always busy with tourists and passing trade. It's not just a bar for the tourists though, as the great service and helpful staff keep the locals coming back to this city centre bar. A brilliant bar near George Square to meet up with friends for a casual drink or two.

Browns probably couldn't have asked for a better location. You'll find them right next to George Square, in an iconic Victorian-era building that overlooks the Sir Walter Scott monument. Pretty impressive. Browns serves up delicious cocktails and some great food, making it a great bar near George Square and a popular spot for post-shopping drinks or people watching.

The Ark

3 user reviews

The Ark can be found just a stone's throw away from George Square. This bar is a popular place with students - probably due to the drinks promotions and cheap food - but also with the younger post-work crowd looking for somewhere centrally located to relax in. A laid-back and casual bar near George Square.

All Bar One Glasgow

All Bar One is a favourite with the professional post-work crowd and come 5pm on a Friday, this bar will really fill up. During the day, though, its close proximity to George Square makes it a buzzing place with people looking for a drink or quick meal in the city centre at a reasonable price. Grab a seat upstairs and watch the world go by through their huge windows.
