Waxy O'Connors


In the heart of the West End, Waxy O'Connors is like no other bar and restaurant you've ever visited. The extraordinary interior has some amazing features including cathedral like timber carvings, stained glass windows, beautifully tiled floors and the trunk and branches of a giant preserved beech tree. Within this are 3 bars and 6 different levels linked together by a warren of staircases and passages. Waxys stage regular live music and promotions, and show all the top sporting events on a big screen.

This pub is massive, so many levels, steps, doors, tables. chair, and bars. It can take a little while to find your perfect spot to hang out in. This place is so cool we lost track of time and spent a few good hours here drinking beer and eating chips. The atmosphere is great, at the time we were here a futball game was playing in the main tree room. Everyone was yelling and having a grand...more

Are you looking to infect yourself with an STD so you can get £££ from some NHS-sponsored study while serving as a scientific guinea pig? Please, don't wait to visit Waxy's! Plenty of strains to choose from - and plenty of places to get infected!

The toilets are flooded, the service attendant doesn't give a shit, and a cockroach weaves in and out between feet at the main bar at midnight!...more
