Deceiving from the outside. Waxy's has a variety of levels and nooks. I had to check out the decor on all the floors and found a couple of bars. We were looking for a place for lunch and our new friends asked if they could join us. Found a quiet level to enjoy very good pub food - burgers, nachos,... More

This is a beautiful premises which is very impressive with its timber and Gothic church like features. There are six bars all with its own unique character. It was very busy on the weekend of the Munster v Glasgow rugby match so maybe the staff were not as prepared as they should have been for the influx of visiting fans.... More

looks like an old church inside with windy steps and levels , very interesting and if in Glasgow you should go have a drink and look around it . Is one place I like to start drinking if going to town :) also reasonable prices for being in Glasgow city center.

We called into Waxy O'connors for a drink on New years Eve and we were impressed. Set over a few floors, the bar is like a Tardis, nooks and crannies all over the place! We asked about tickets for that night, but were told it sold out weeks ago. Would loved to have spent the night there. Maybe next time!!... More

I liked the place. Original, quirky, imaginative and worth a try. Trouble is that, like the name, there was a madam Tussauds falseness about it. It's aim is to make money, rather than show hospitality and genuine warmth. Not the staff, who were very pleasant but a pretence that wouldn't get me rushing back. Hey Ho - as long as... More

Great pub! Love the music and the layout! Was there last night and a few of the bars were closed which was a bit of a pain, but other than that we had a good night!! Toilets clean and well stocked. Staff very nice!!

Thank lmcl33
