An unusual, art-deco style place towards the western end of the Sauchiehall Street party district, Nico's is not really a café bar (though we understand that they will do you a filter coffee if you so wish). Vaguely decadent in style, with mirrors all over the place and dominated by deep red tones, it feels like something from the 1930s or 1940s. It tends to pull in smaller groups, couples and singles, who are more interested in drinking and chatting than frequenting some of the trendier spots around here. The beer is average - Belhaven, Stella and Tennent's lager dominate (we're not sure they even had any of the darker Belhaven or Tennent's varieties most pubs serve up here) - and the selection of malts isn't amazing. However, they do open reasonably late (1am on the weekday evening we visited) and you can drink in relative peace, although the music was cranked up somewhat. What's more, the beer is very, very cheap for this part of town - barely two pounds a pint. Pleasingly, this fact doesn't seem to attract many waifs and strays, at least not in midweek (apart from the odd fancyapint? reviewer, maybe). Not a bad option if you just want to put your feet up and have a relaxing lateish-night drink after a long, long journey north as we had experienced.
