Sippin', Eatin', ROckin', Rollin'
In normal times, Bag O' Nails is an institution of Glasgow's West End, famous for Live Music and being a fantastic late-night bar and restaurant which serves fantastic locally-sourced produce.
We showcase live music every single week, including our now famous Open Stage on a Thursday night which is a key part of unearthing and developing local talent, we have fantastic fairly-paid live bands which we have helped to develop since our inception, many of whom going on to feature at international festivals and become full-time musicians and we are incredibly proud of the part we play in making this happen. We also feature and develop some of the best local live Djs on Fridays and Saturdays, fulfilling all your indie rock n roll desires.
We have homemade food featuring daily specials from our dedicated and award winning kitchen team and a unparalleled range of bottled beers and spirits compared to what’s available locally.
Favourites include our Sunday brunch menu which features all day breakfasts and the immensely popular Sunday Roast. The Bar Bites, our late night menu which runs from 10pm til 1am every day and always goes down a storm with our regulars.
We are child friendly and have a kids menu with a make your own pizza section so the kids can be chefs for the day and enjoy some of the earlier starting live music if you want to get them started on rock n roll early.

The Team at Bag O' Nails.
Live music most nights at Bag o' Nails
Bag O' Nails doesn’t just champion unsigned musicians to play whole sets, but we provide an Open Stage for someone thinking about taking their first steps into music, even if that’s just a few bars of song, encouraging this is immensely important part of who we are and because of the strong sense of community the staff and locals provide, all acts are given a warm reception for displaying courage to perform which is an incredibly important first step of developing grassroots music.
Our unsigned talent plays a variety of covers and their own material to keep our guests entertained with the live music always being a showpiece event at the weekend, and providing great ambience midweek. Lots of our bands have went from barely playing a one hour set to much bigger things such as playing some of the countries much loved festivals such as Wickerman, Doune the Rabbit Hole, Belladrum to name but a few and I feel like our commitment to stick by them and give them their chance and offer extremely useful feedback to aid their development is a key part of what makes our venue different to some of the other maybe better known venues in the Glasgow area,
We believe all up and coming bands should be financially rewarded no matter their level and pay all our bands a fair fee for their hard work and we’ve consistently aimed to grow each bands fee as they develop, to not only incentivise them to improve but also to encourage people considering becoming a full-time musician that there are venues that value their talent and development.
