Quinno _ left this review about The Laurieston Bar

A 60s timewarp; outside, inside and the general atmosphere. Situated in a somewhat ropey area on the wrong side of the Clyde (the walk there was pretty eye-opening) the exterior looks almost untouched since it was built. The entrance porch gives way to U shaped interior divided with a small knock-through present, everything meets round the back via a long formica-topped island bar. The right side lounge has dark wood panelling, red fabric banquettes, tartan carpet, wood boxed ceiling, retro smoked lampshades, glass and wood bar divider as well as furniture that also looks original. A piece of modernity is the statement piece of art 'cherry picker'. The left side is a bit more public bar but still very characterful. Even much of the furniture is genuine period stuff, the place has clearly been looked-after. Packed both evenings we tried to visit (first time round we were turned away as it was full!) with an enjoyably mixed crowd. Three cask ales spread around the bar, all from Fyne. I went for the Highlander (NBSS 2.5) and Jarl (4.5) as well as a disappointing McEwan’s 80/- on keg - musty, I think it was well-past its bedtime. Cash only in here, which I thoroughly enjoyed. A pair of friendly oldies run the place alongside a lad who I think is their son; an affable bunch who were great for a chat and it’s well-worth making sure you do this one soon whilst they are still running it. 8.5

An absolute must visit.In a most unpromising area,this street corner boozer has a classic Glasgow exterior and looks as rough as you like.However inside it's an unspoiled gem with heritage features everywhere.It retains a two room layout,a public bar to the left and a smaller carpeted lounge to the right,both connected by a rear corridor to the loos.
The public bar has a U shaped servery topped off by a wooden surround.Seating is fitted benches in red leather or traditional wooden chairs,the formica tables have two decks,no doubt to store shorts and water below,with pints on top so that you had a lot of ammunition after last orders was called in the days of short licensing hours.
The high windows have long drapes which are drawn shut after dark giving a cosy atmosphere.Sports flatscreens are on mute ,great decision to maintain conversation as the lifeblood of this public bar.
The lounge is more plush but no less atmospheric has it's own bar access.
Three real ales were offered all from Fyne Jarl (NBSS 3.5),Avalanche (Not quite right but changed without fuss) and Hurricane Jack.
I stayed for quite a few pints,it's an easy place to settle and the bar staff are friendly ,informative and efficient.The spirits measures are traditional gills so a double here is more like a modern day treble !Great boozer,this is what working class pubs were like in the 60's,the cash only notice seemed fittingly appropriate.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Laurieston Bar

This historic pub is well worth a visit, it is a well supported locals pub and is very welcoming. We popped in on a Tuesday afternoon and found it difficult to leave as we were chatting to the owner and his son behind the bar, and a few of the locals.
The main bar area had a 1960's Formica counter top along with some narrow Formica tables. Three ales on handpump, Fyne Ales Jarl and Highlander and Broughton Brewery Merlins Ale. The Fyne Ale was the best of the three, the owner kept giving us large samples of the McEwan's Export, McEwans 80/- along with Guinness, as he took a lot of pride in his beers.
