Amazing how many people fall for the 2for1 pizza trick. You pay £7 for two pizzas but a round of two drinks cost on avg £8-10.. you do the math.
Place is a mess, seats held together by tape, the staff have absolutely no interest in a) the beer and b) the customers. Don't waste your time in this subterranean pit when there are many, many better and more value for money bars in Glasgow.
If you like your beer this is the place to be! An amazing selection from all around the world. It isn't cheap but the quality of the beer makes it worth the extra few quid. They do amazing 2-4-1 pizzas and the bar itself is really nice! I'd recommend it to any beer enthusiast.
I adore this place. Visited it many times now and never fails to disappoint. You'll usually find a decent atmosphere in there despite how close the tables are to one another.
Pizza's are good, beer is good and is one place I always make an effort to get to when I'm back in Glasgow.
The only negative is how small the place is and I can only imagine that I'd be tearing my hair our if there was some little kids crying in there.

Go on then einstein, enlighten us with your plan for saving the world. As I've already said elsewhere, your snidey wee comments don't cheer anyone up, don't help anyone use the site for its intended purpose, and don't use punctuation either. If you're so good, tell us what your idea of a perfect pub is.
Renowned for there 2 4 1 pizza deal thats on from a Sunday to a Thursday, this is probably my favourite pizza place in Glasgow.
Its a german bar with every sort of beer/lager you can imagine!
Iv never really sampled any of the other options on the menu i always go for pizza.
The pizza's are amazing, they do gourmet ones also which are incredible.
My faves are the fiorentina which comes with a poached egg on the top and also the chorizo which comes wih red onion, it has quite a sweet taste. All the pizza's have a thin base and are not 2 stoggy! I dont think iv ever failed to finish one!dont be caught out and go at the weekends as u wont get the offer and there about 9 - 12 pounds for one pizza!Go try it out!
if you set up a speciality beer bar ,you should at least know something of the product your trying to sell,this is obviously not the case in this establishment,the idea that all beer should be dispensed ice cold in glasses kept in the freezer is just nonsense
Beer, beer, pizza and more beer. Huge selection of beers from all over the world. They also have your bog standard pints on tap. Great 2-4-1 pizza offers at certain times during the week and they are well tasty. Good if you’re just going for a drink, fancy a casual dinner or have the munchies while you’re out for a drink.
This is a great place to have a pizza, and I have been there a few times, and the atmosphere is very great, and I love going in there with my friends. even all those shots…. can’t get enough of them….!!! even i do love those table service which the waitresses do come to our table to order our drinks, then delivers to our table.
But we warned, when you have drank one too many and when you gets up and you are bound to feel even more drunken than you thought… and oh the long flight of stairs to climb up to get out…...... in the end… Haha!
Situated close to Central station it is very handy for me to head back home to Paisley.Small but cosy and friendly it is a great place for a night out.The best thing about the Bier Hall is the pizzas which are made fresh,you can see the chef making them in the kitchen and they taste amazing.They do a 2 for 1 offer during the week aswell which is great value for money.Good selection of beers aswell even if it less of a selection than they used to do.Great pub
Great bar for a bite to eat or few beers. Slap bang in the centre of Glasgow just off Buchanan Street int he main shopping district. Pizzas are amazing and great value, the 2 for 1 deal must be snapped up! Beers are a little on the pricey side but is fun to try out all the different ones from other countries and they have a huge selection.
The highlight of this place for me, is that between Monday and Thursday the pizza’s are two for one!! They are GREAT pizzas!! The rest of the food menu isn’t up to much, the soup looks good but the sandwiches are a bit on the dry side. The chocolate fudge cake is a great way to follow you’re pizza if you’re still peckish! The drinks selection is like any pub other than the fact that they have a massive beer menu. Huge selection from around the world. Prices are average i’d say.
The atmosphere is great, its underground and you can hear the lower level trains from the Central Station and the Subway rumbling by, its all dark and brooding - you feel a bit like you’re sitting in an abandoned subway tunnel.
Staff aren’t the friendliest in Glasgow, i’ll say that, and at times can be pretty dumb and spend more time chatting to each other than watching for you waving your arms around like a loon to get their attention. Thats the only downside for me :)
The main feature of this bar is meant to be the wide selction of beers but often alot of them are out of stock! That said the decor is nice and the staff friendly / service fast. The seating is an odd mix of very high bar stools and very low seating neither of which you’d want to sit in for a long amount of time but maybe thats the idea. The german insppired menu of sausage and cabbage is tasty and the stone baked pizzas are good too.
Bonus fact there is no mobile phone reception in there so it’s a good place to hide!
Can’t really comment on their wide array of beer as I am not a beer drinker but I am a pizza eater and this place serves some lovely pizza. They do a great offer mid week where if you buy 1 pizza you get 1 free. You get all your usual varieties but they also do some weird combinations. My personal favourite is the Hoisin Duck pizza which is one of the best I have ever had. Only thing I would say is seats are not the most comfy. Fine if you are just in for lunch but don’t fancy it if were sitting on them all night.
The Republic is slap bang in the middle of Glasgow, the doorway leading to the basement is halfway between Buchanan Street and West Nile Street.
Cosy but not too stuffy for a basement bar it is pretty dark, but I think that gives it an intimate atmosphere.
It isn’t really a cheap beer and shots kind of a place, the extensive beer menu has a great range for beer aficionados from fairly standard imported beers to weird ones that come in giant bottles.
They provide table service and have fantastic stone baked pizzas, that are on 2-for-1 during the week, and there is also a wee room at the back that be booked for functions.
My favourite thing about Bier Halle is the food - these are the best pizzas I’ve had in Glasgow by a long way. Light bases, quality toppings and 2-for-1 during the week.
The beer list has changed recently and has been reduced to a single page. The selection left is more standard than it was before - a number of international lagers, a selection of Belgian beers and then nothing much else you don’t find in any city bar.
The staff usually are very busy, so service can be slow. I quite like this, as it means you can relax, if you are aware of this. Some things I like less are having to pay for food and drinks immediately, but that I guess in a busy place with large turn-over of tables this makes financial sense.
On a personal note, I was over charged here 3 times in the space of a month. The bar was busy each time and there were no problems fixing the bill, but I’m extra cautious now.
Chances are if you want a specific type of beer, they’ll have it! Just don’t ask them to surprise you or you’ll get a 12% beer in a huge bottle that can knock you on your arse.
Dark, and secluded, which is always a good thing if you want to have a drink in the afternoon and don’t want judged!
