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 place is tremendous. There is nothing more that needed to be said. I came with a group of friends and nearly got lost. The rating of four stars is generously given for a place to get beers in what is a neighborhood tourist area but it makes sense with the polite service. The only food we can comment on was "the lot" and it was typical bar fare with nothing to write home about.more

Went in there as in the area, still looks good with all the levels, but no customers. I ordered a pint of Guinness £5.40 for it. No wonder it is empty. Never going back again.more

We asked our waiter at a different pub for a recommendation. He told us about this place and said it was the most beautiful pub he'd ever seen - and he wasn't lying!

We came on a Tuesday afternoon and it was almost empty, but it's just so awesome to see. You gotta check it out. The ham and cheese croquettes were yummy, and we drank bottled cider. Good service and great experience!more

Amazing!! What a cool bar! Seems so small from the outside but it's huge. Lovely people, staff and good sing a long music. Moderate prices for that area as well. Definitely gonna come back to this one!more

I came here with my friends after getting turned away from Experimental Cocktail Club because one of our group was wearing flip flops (whoops). We wanted a bar that we could get into that wasn't horribly touristy, so Alex S's review convinced me to check out Waxy O'Connor's- and I am glad we did!

This place is quite the experience. It is gigantic, with tons of different winding underground...more
