This atmospheric and distinctive late-night bar has partnered with Babu for an outstanding Glasgow food collaboration.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

While something of a Glasgow institution and a veteran indie presence on this entertaining stretch of Sauchiehall Street loaded with restaurants and bars, Nice ’n’ Sleazy is far from resting on its laurels. Usually the excitement around this atmospheric rock bar is generated by a musical collaboration but this year food fans are stirred by the arrival of a new menu by Babu Bombay Street Kitchen. Now Sleazy’s boasts inventive spicy treats for vegans and meat-eaters courtesy of the Babu crew who have won acclaim for their pop-ups and West Regent Street café. Early arrivals should try the Full Bombay Breakfast while stand-out lunchtime dishes include a Goanese chicken wrap or lamb kofta nan sandwich. Expect impeccably prepared street food that packs a tasty punch with raw, fresh flavours. Sleazy's appeals to an eclectic crowd, catering for distinct audiences with acclaimed club nights, film screenings and a consistently impressive roster of bands performing almost every night.

Bar Crawls: Glasgow - The Sauchiehall Street Saunter

18 Nov 2011

Making the most of Glasgow city centre drinking

Both ‘pub crawl’ and ‘Sauchiehall Street’ can evoke images of large groups of revellers staggering from one ropey watering hole to the next, the night hurtling towards a climax of kebab sauce and lost cloakroom tickets. Well this route aims to redress…

A long-standing Glasgow institution, Sleazy’s can boast great food, great bands and the best jukebox this side of New York reckons David Pollock.

They don't mention in their website/ gig promos on the List that if you turn up alone you wont be allowed in. Charming - kick a guy when he's down! :-(
