The Maltman, for a restorative night out

A fire in 1981 nearly brought an end to The Maltman, housed on the ground floor of Castle Chambers - a symbol of Victorian prosperity - but thanks to a loving restoration job, it has held onto the charm and character that makes it such a Glasgow institution. With extra seating on the mezzanine level at the rear, ideal for private parties and buffets for up to 50, it's roomy and friendly and suits your mood whether you're in for large-screen Sky Sports, a catch-up with old pals or a turn beneath the mirror ball to the retro, chart and Motown sounds of DJ Tommy on Friday and Saturday. Children are welcome until 8pm.
