This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Everyone in Glasgow and beyond knows the live venue regularly voted one the of the UK’s best. Less well known is that Tut’s goes beyond simply having a bar for the nightly gigs. Food is surprisingly good and makes it a good option for a bar meal in town, providing it’s not packed with gig-goers. Quality burgers and fish and chips are established favourites, while the tapas are as good as many of the city’s Spanish restaurants – pan Catalan is fit for the Nou Camp, and juicy garlic prawns come sizzling in olive oil. A light crisp WEST King Tut’s lager – brewed for the bar by the renowned local brewery – is a favourite with regulars. With more to this place than just music, it’s a gem too easily missed or overlooked – and you can always hop upstairs if you want to rock non-stop.
