Speakeasy on John Street is a quirky, gay bar in the heart of Merchant City. With clashing styles, Speakeasy blends prohibition era decor, hidden book shelf doors, red leather Chesterfield booths - and an impressive bourbon selection - with fun, quirky elements like a scattering of board games and some seriously camp tunes spinning overhead. 

As the home of the pre-club session for FHQ upstairs and The Polo Lounge nearby, Speakeasy draws a party crowd from the LGBT community and beyond. Along with pop-tastic anthems on weekends, and quiz and movie screenings mid week, nights like Camp Karaoke and Serial Slapper with resident hostess with the mostess, Nancy Clench, keep punters well entertained. Drink promos here offer some thrifty choices, while the cocktail menu includes some potent classics along with with teapot sharers. Eats at Speakeasy blend Glasgow pub grub faves like chippy suppers and burgers.
