Waxy O'Connor's Glasgow

2 user reviews

Waxy O'Connors is a cracking Irish pub in the middle of Glasgow. While it is technically in Merchant City, as it's right next to Queen Street station, it's the ideal spot to relax after a long day at work before catching the train home. The pub itself is a huge venue, connected with wooden staircases and corridors, so you might end up spending more time admiring the architecture than drinking. The pub really gets going in the evening - as you would expect from an Irish pub - so stick around and soak up the atmosphere in one of the best pubs in Glasgow's City Centre.

The Admiral

1 user reviews

The Admiral has gained a somewhat cult status in Glasgow, attracting your usual regulars but also a younger crowd on the weekends. This Glasgow pub's central location makes it a great meeting point for a night out or somewhere to settle for the evening. With a traditional pub upstairs and a club meets gig venue below, The Admiral is quite a clash. But for that reason, it's certainly one of the best pubs in Glasgow City Centre.

Sloans

3 user reviews

Hidden just off Argyle Street is Glasgow's oldest pub, Sloans. It's something of a multi-purpose venue these days, hosting weekly céilidhs, wedding receptions and movie nights, but it remains a firm favourite with the locals as a great place to have a drink in charming surroundings. One of the best pubs in Glasgow's City Centre to catch up with friends over a glass of wine or pint of ale.
