Brought here by a friend who's Glasgow born and bred. In fact, he had worked here in his student days. A great lively bar serving a wide range of drinks with a smile. Decent prices too. Great atmosphere and a lovely vibe. Highly recommended.

I understand that it is pretty busy on a Friday but you could try the royal Scot bar which is just a minute's walk from the horseshoe bar and there is a bar called the crystal palace you could try as well. Hope this helps.
