Wee Red Bar information
The Wee Red Bar has been around so long there’s a danger the authorities will slap a blue plaque on it and declare it a national monument. Wee, red and frequented, hardly surprisingly, by lots of art students, it’s famous for the Egg , a weekly smorgasbord of classic punk, ska, northern soul, indie etc that is still one of the best club nights in the city.
