Waxy O'Connors can be found down Dundas Lane, which is right in front of Queen Street station, making it one of the easiest train station bars in Glasgow to find. This Irish bar is popular with suits grabbing a quick drink after a business meeting and tourists who've just stepped off the train and looking for a couple of refreshments (Guinness, of course).
Bar Soba isn't as close to Central station as some of the other bars on this list are, but it's only a 2-3 minute walk away. Besides, it's a great bar so would be a shame to leave it out. Head here for some tasty Asian inspired eats with a couple of cocktails after stepping off the train and we guarantee you'll want to stick around for one of their pre-club parties.
This retro Italian bar can be found just a street away from Glasgow's Central station. Try a Prosecco cocktail from their Italian inspired drinks menu or if you're feeling hungry (and brave), why not try their famous metre long pizza? This quirky bar is definitely one of Glasgow's best train station bars.
Browns is probably one of the most centrally located train station bars in Glasgow. You can find Browns looking over George Square, which is right in front of Queen Street station. The cocktails and swish surroundings makes this bar perfect place to begin a girly weekend after stepping off the train.
Another bar hidden down a lane, Stereo can be found just around the corner from Central station. This is the ideal train station bar in Glasgow for students and cool kids to stop off before heading home for the weekend (probably with a big bag of washing in tow too). Stereo also serves up a vegetarian menu if you're feeling peckish - we think it's best to fill your belly here instead of paying £3 for a bag of crisps on the train.
If you're arriving at Central station, take the Hope Street exit, look to your right and there you'll find Ad Lib. This train station bar in Glasgow specialises in American cuisine and has a real New York eatery vibe to it. A great place to stop off for a taste of the States before you embark on your travels.
