The Horse Shoe Bar
17-19 Drury Street
What is it? Long a Glasgow institution, it began trading in 1846 before a fellow called John Scouller took it over and renamed it The Horse Shoe Bar in 1884. Tucked away from the bustle of the city centre it is now embedded in Glasgow pub culture. The interior has changed slightly over the years but it is still a shrine to the Victorian style that has slowly disappeared in other pubs. Etched glass, elaborate cornicing, dark wood panelling, old spirit casks and the famous bar, once the longest in Europe.
