Sometimes you finally visit a bar that you’ve passed hundreds of times over the years.
And when you venture in for the first time it knocks you for six. that’s what happened to me on my latest pub adventure.
If you want a glimpse of what a night out in Glasgow was like in the 1960s, take the Subway to Bridge Street Station, cross the road and step back in time through the doors of the Laurieston.It doesn’t look like anything special from the outside.In fact I’d always avoided it and passed by on my way to and from work when I lived in the South Side.Now, I’ve been wrong a few times in my life and I’m the first to admit I got it wrong about this place. It looks as if it’s basically been untouched for 50 years with a circular bar, stools for the regulars and wee red tables.
The minute you walk in, it’s like you’re stepping back in time to a Glasgow from a long-gone era. The pub is separated into a bar with a wooden floor and a cosy lounge which is carpeted.I think a couple of Glasgow ladies had just left, as two small empty Mateus Rose bottles were sitting on a table.
