The Hippo Taproom


This funky basement bar is tucked away under Glasgow's city centre and is a great place to kick back and enjoy a few drinks with friends or to take your partner for a laid back night out. It is also packed full of the best craft beers you will find. They have 10 keg lines, 3 cask lines and approximately 70 bottles/cans in their fridges all dedicated to craft beer and real ale. They don't sell any mainstream beers - that just isn't their thing! Alongside that they have a great selection of boutique spirits and wines.

The decor is urban chic with exposed brick walls but with a modern edge and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Casual is definitely the dress code. They play a selection of alternative, indie, blues, rock and soul as well as making a point to try and give exposure to up and coming local bands and artists. 

As a truly independent craft beer bar they sell only the best beers they can get their hands on. They have no ties to any breweries or other organisations so they bring you only what they think are the best beers we can get. They offer a range of light bites and nibbles including hand crafted pies and artisan cheese as well as high quality crisps and nuts. Alongside their high quality food and artisan wines and spirits they have everything to offer you a great night out or relaxing, chilled out afternoon.
