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

for 89p you can get a great gin and tonic, the music is the best and the dj will play paper planes every time you request it. Everyone in the venue is friendly i've been there a million times and never seen any real trouble. Great place for a cool bevvy. see you on thursday!

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.

My husband & I tried to get in here on Saturday 7.30 pm but were basically laughed at by a male & female door staff! The male actually blocked our entry antagonistically asking if we knew what type of place this was,to which I answered,a pub? I have never been treated so badly & made to feel like a geriatric...
