A Refurbished 1960s Pub with Local Flair and Its Own Signature Ale

Bright, airy and spacious, the Quo Vadis pub – meaning ‘where are you going’ in Latin – has been a much-loved meeting place for residents of the southwest Glasgow suburb of Cardonald for decades. When it first opened in the 1960s, the pub immediately established itself as the go-to spot for locals on nights out, attracting guests with its cocktail and food offerings. Quo Vadis also used to host a popular weekly talent contest, which quickly gained a loyal following, attracting guests from miles around and further adding to its appeal.

In recent years, Quo Vadis underwent a major refurbishment that saw its interior transformed into a welcoming and bright open-plan space with an array of seating, including banquettes, armchairs and wood-and-upholstered chairs. Though the recent redecoration saw the pub modernised, it didn’t strip it of its character; fascinating local archive pictures and maps adorning its walls recall the earlier years of its existence. The local community converges on the pub during football matches and other big sporting events, which are shown live on large screens. A pool table and a dartboard provide additional entertainment, while live music adds to the fun at the weekends. The pub is a warm and friendly place, and families who come here for a meal will feel just as much at home at Quo Vadis as groups of friends who come to drink and socialise. The pub’s bottle and draught offerings are a hit with beer and ale drinkers, and they even serve their very own signature Quo Vadis ale.

Party Past Midnight with a Late License

Capable of holding parties with up to 150 people, Quo Vadis’s upstairs function room is ideal for wedding receptions, private events and for those who want to go big for a milestone birthday. The venue is also regularly used to host wakes, with the Craigton Crematorium located nearby.

A private bar upstairs means that guests don’t have to leave the party to get a drink, while catering of all kinds, whether a full hot meal or simple snacks, can be provided. Perhaps the biggest draw of Quo Vadis’ function room is that a late license can be arranged, which means that your party doesn’t have to end early as the bar can stay open until 1am. And with staff on hand to ensure your event comes off without a hitch, you and your guests are free to sit back and enjoy the party.
