AFTER MONTHS IN the making, the new JD. Wetherspoon mega-pub has finally opened on Glasgow's Jamaica Street. The Crystal Palace gets its name not from the English First Division squad but the origins of this 1855 architectural landmark. It was the first commercial building to use the pre-fab cast iron structure pioneered by London's Crystal Palace. Two floors of this former warehouse with arched windows can now house 1,100 punters. The two meals for £5.99 menu (available most days between 2pm and 10pm) is popular and drinks are generally cheap: £1.59 for lager, £1.85 for hand-pulled Deuchars IPA and £1.80 for a double shot of house spirits. In keeping with Wetherspoon dictates, there is a strict no music policy, no pool tables and no children are allowed.
