A beautifully crafted bar, Waxy O'Connor's is more than just your average Irish pub. Set over three floors, with six bars and nine spaces, it's a superhouse of a pub, all of which is covered in stunning carpentry which shoots up out of the floors and along the ceiling like a sprawling forest. Elements of church decor include stained glass which adorns the ceilings and walls, old lanterns hanging about, and a stone and brick backdrops.
The crowd here ranges from those in for a bite and a pint to groups in to catch a match (GAA is also shown here for Glasgow's Irish contingent) and a fun party crowd looking to drown in some old-fashioned Irish revelry. The menu includes hearty Irish and Scottish favourites with haggis, Irish stew, steak and Guinness pie and bacon and cabbage all making an appearance. Of course the Guinness flows, as does the whisky, but there are beers and spirits available if you don't fancy the house tipples. Spaces are available or event hire, with a later licence on request. A vast, yet beautiful Merchant City favourite, where a good night is close to guaranteed.
