This place has improved a great deal in the last 6 months, particularly the service and quality of the food - the Thai fries were absolutely brilliant and a steal at £4 for a huge portion. A little niggle would be that the tables wobble and the decor in general looks quite tired, but hey, at 89p for house spirits... More

Been here many times, most recently was a Friday night to see Kings of Leon tribute band. Got in for nothing since it was before 9. Drinks were reasonable for the city centre and it was a mixed crowd. Tunes before the tribute came on were brill. Would definitely recommend.

Do you typically let your staff sit by the bar and drink while on shift? It was a quiet night, fairly early evening. No one was behind the bar and the staff were having a drink, and kept jumping behind the bar if someone came to buy a drink. Bit bizarre.

It's a decent place with good music and cheap drinks on the main strip of Glasgow. Difficult to get a drink when it's busy but worth it for the £0.89 vodka lemonades on a Thursday. Shouldn't have to pay to get in though. No need. They make enough and it's not exactly a club.

My boyfriend, his best friend and myself wanted to go out for a night in Glasgow. My boyfriend and I are from Ayr so we had never been here before. The overall atmosphere was alright, nothing too spectacular. We asked for the price of a vodka and coke (not expecting it to be over £1.99). £3!! Our friend bought a... More

When I first moved to Glasgow this was one of the first bars I visited, and at the time I remember being overwhelmed with the cool atmosphere, music choices and cheap food and drink. However once you've experienced some of Glasgow's better nightlife it becomes all too apparent where Firewater is lacking - from the house spirits tasting closer to... More

Came here with friends as pre drinks to a night out. Great little find Laid back atmosphere and good prices on the drinks. Lots of seating and heard the food is good too. Took 1 star off because of the stairs especially if you've had a few drinks this could become dangerous. Would definitely come back!

Drinks are cheap although you get what you pay for. Toilet attendant was unbelievably rude and actually threatening at some points. Only up side to this place is the music can be alright. Will not be back.
