58 Bridge Street | Glasgow G5 9HU
There is a rite of passage among Glasgow freshers called the sub-crawl, which, as might be apparent, involves grabbing a discovery ticket, and getting off at every station to grab a pint at the nearest pub. Some of those silly enough to try it will skip on Bridge Street, which is a real shame as they'll be missing this little gem. The Laurieston is a family run pub that's been open nigh-on forever. From the outside, it's by no means the friendliest looking gaff, but through the doors lies a perfectly preserved specimen – a true, old school Glasgow pub experience replete with sixties upholstery, and a good range of ales available at Southside prices. Perfect for anyone looking to get a drink before / after a show at the 02.
