Very interesting building - church transformed into a bar - worth a visit and try the cocktails. Go early if possible before it gets fashionably busy

The outside of the building is just as interesting as the inside. Well worth a look inside but you'll have to buy a drink or have a bite to eat. Food is basic but nice. A little pricey for what you get. You can't see the impressive upper level and ceiling art without attending a special event. A bit quiet during the day. It is a gentle stroll from the Glasgow Botanic Gardens and about 15 minutes walk from Kelvingrove Park.

If you are visiting Glasgow and want to do something different at lunchtime Oranmor is well worth a visit. You can take in a theatrical experience while eating (and drinking). Oranmor is a converted church which combines a terrific bar, a function room and a small theatre.
At lunchtimes you can take in the experience known as a Play, a Pie and a Pint. Basically you will see some theatre, could be a play, could be musical, could be comedy. If you phone in advance you will be able to judge if that weeks' offering is to your taste. I would say though that you should not prejudge the programme. It is invariably original and occasionally brilliant.
The Pie lives up to its name in that you will be able to partake in the quintessential Glasgow pub fare if with a modern twist.
The Pint part is basically alcohol. Not restricted to pints of beer however as there is a decent choice of wines and an excellent choice of whisky.
The theatre is in what used to be the crypt and the main bar is located in what was the main part of the church. The bar is also well worth a visit as it is a friendly well appointed pub with a good choice of beer and an excellent choice of whisky. Oranmor can stay open late but you should check this beforehand if you are planning to go hear after theatre etc.

It might be that we picked a bad time to visit, there was a wedding on and all that was available was the bar. We were disappointed.
