O The Horseshoe 17 Drury Street. Recently renovated pub boasting the longest bar in Europe and the best pub lunches in the city. The intricate island bar serves a decent variety of ales and is propped up at lunchtimes by numerous members of Glasgow‘s legal fraternity. The three course lunches taste commendably home-made a rare bargain at £1 .20. O Saracen's Head Gallowgate. Historic coaching inn with what might delicately be termed a ‘colourful‘ reputation. Made famous by B. Connolly. B Bryden and M. McCormick.

0 Rock Garden 73 Queen Street. Once Glasgow‘s trendiest bar. the RG seems to be regaining its reputation after a dull period. Now divided into two, the trendier element congregates in the downstairs. ‘New Frontier‘. Bar prices tend towards the alarming but the floor show is good still possible to see the odd music biz character they come here expressly to be ignored.

0 Pin Miller Street. Opened as an alternative to the Rock Garden but seems to have attracted its own crowd. Sometimes the doorman won‘t let you in. but when he does you enter a pub into which a lot of effort and money has been put. attracting both admiration and criticism. In our experience the

, Stella here is a tasty drop.

0 Alice's Underground Cambridge Street. Opened with a flourish and is certainly by far the most unusual pub in the city floating piano. Morris Minor, swimming pool etc. Hard to describe and certainly Worth a visit for its curiosity value unlikely to become anyone‘s ‘regular‘.

0 Hurricanes 142 West-Regent Street. For a long tim‘e a serious rival to the Rock Garden. Now it has to much competition and is just a tad offthe beaten track. All the same. this basement bar often makes a nice change.

C Griffin Bath Street. Three pubs in one. Griffin, Griffiny and Griffinette. Used to be popular with Art School types but less so now. The Griffin has probably the rudest bar staffin Glasgow.

0 Ritz North Street. Over 100 years old and a free house. The Ritz has some lovely wood panelling and an even iovelier selection ofales. A photographer friend says she comes here because it is full ofsuch interesting faces.

O Overflow Old Dumbarton Road. Some of the best beer in the city is to be had here. On our last visit here we 3 were amazed to see a ‘try before you 3 buy‘ scheme in operation. A good l and varied selection of beers is available in this pub which is well run by someone who obviously knows all there is to know about beer.

0 The Nile West Nile Street. A

chrome and glass type of pub the

Nile is both attractive and airy. The

bar staff are pleasant and there is a smallerbar downstairs. For all this.

not one of Glasgow‘s busiest pubs and so to be recommended. Incidentally. the toilets are reached via the front door.

0 Smiths West Nile Street. A

S pleasant ifsomewhat cramped pub. there are some fine drawings by Susan Scott and much time can be

whiled away by guessing who the subjects are. The upper part is extremely short of headroom which can be doubly treacherous after a couple of Smiths extra-large glasses ofwine.

0 Squire’s West (‘ampbell Street. There‘s no way I cart find ofsaying

; that this is a nice wee bar and friendly

and gay without sounding really naff. 0 Fouquet's Reniield Street. A great big barn ofa place. Like a (ierman Bier Keller. I imagine. if I‘d ever been in one.

0 Duke’s Old Dumbarton Road. Will pass down in Glasgow folk lore as the place where we really were dancing in the streets last summer when The Clash actually played here. Ifyou manage to find it you'll probably love it.

0 Hickory's Miller Street. Place fora quiet drink when Fixx is too much.

0 De Quincey’s Renfieid Street. You either love it or you hate it. The fanciest wally close in the city.

0 The Cul de Sac 44/46 Ashton Lane. The pub for the philosopher. Poses a million questions. . . Why won‘t they serve me'.’ Why does everyone have the same haircut? What‘s that thing on the wall'.’ Whining over the (‘ul de Sac is still one of the best.

0 Sloans Argyll Arcade. Famous and very. very old. A real pub. None of your potted palms and fancy cocktails here!

0 Stage DoorSl ()id Riitherglen Road. Local for the (‘itz. and a good place fora pint ifthe queues at the theatre bar are too long or too arty.

O Tennants Byres Road. For a street the size of Byres Road. there are

; precious few really good pubs.


Tennants remains one of the most popular with locals and students alike. Back in the good old days of Bass Special the best pint around was served here and the beer remains good to this day.
