The Arlington

Serving up a dose of utterly unpretentious, frill free good times, The Arlington (or The Arly as it is more fondly known) has established itself as an institution among West End pleasure seekers. Your classic, old fashioned Glasgow boozer attracts a crowd of fresh faced students, ready to hit the dance-floor to a soundtrack of hits from across the decade. Real ale and speciality beers are served on tap, and rarely hitting the £3 mark, and a Bloody Mary will set you back a mere £2. 

The Arlington finds itself shrouded in mystery and myth; upon the wall of this West End boozer stands The Stone of Destiny, one of Scotland's most treasured artefacts. The stone was used for the coronation of Scottish Kings and Queens for centuries until it was stolen by King Edward I and transferred to Westminster Abbey (or so they thought); little did the world know that beneath a boxed pub seat, the stone lay for years until it was discovered and later displayed in an open wall amongst colour changing lights. If you fancy drinking cheap pints in the presence of this mysterious artefact, you've found yourself the perfect West End haunt.

The Arlington Glasgow - Pub Review

Despite its standing as one of the last few 'proper' pubs in the West End, The Arlington is by no means your traditional boozer. Frequented by an eclectic fan base, The Arli is your go-to for cheap pints, raucous camaraderie and dancing on...

I used to live next to this pub so visited it all the time. It's a proper old mans pub, although the customers are 50/50 split between old men and students. It gets quite lively at the weekends and I think has the cheapest drinks in Glasgow. Not 100% on the cheapest drinks but I've never been in anywhere with cheaper drinks prices.

i'm surprised at how many students frequent this somewhat tired looking watering hole - but, it's a ton of fun over the weekend, with DJs playing disco tracks and dance floor fillers until late. a real glasgow diamond.
