Where you can spice up your life
The interior is sort of Art Deco, sort of Americana retro, the atmosphere is student-meets-music-subcultures-meets-ordinary-Glasgow, it's most definitely located in a neighbourhood of good-times venues just before Sauchiehall Street crosses the M8, tattoos are not an uncommon sight and there's a fish tank. You come to the Variety Bar for a beer, for a DJ night – perhaps featuring electro, swing, nu jazz and Balkan sounds – for occasional special events or because you like the music on the sound system. Loved by regulars, if the interplay between punters and staff hits just the right note, you will enjoy yourself enormously. Not for everyone though.
