This remarkable red sandstone building would once have been packed with wealthy brokers and insurers.
These days it's Glasgow's foremost LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) venue, a bustling hub for the city's thriving gay community.
It sits in the centre of the "gay quarter" – the tag that G1 Group entrepreneur Stefan King helped to bestow upon the Merchant City when he gave us the Polo Lounge, Delmonica's, Club X and Caffe Latte in the mid and late 90s.
Since then, Club X became Common before being reincarnated in its new location on Virginia Street.
A little more dark and subversive, it's left to The Polo to carry the flag as the mainstream or more casual LGBT clubgoer's choice.
The plush armchairs, candelabras and chandeliers are in complete contrast to the cheesy pop tunes and vibrant, energetic mood in the street-level bar, but it somehow works.
Downstairs houses the stereotypical basement club: all low ceilings, columns and more high energy dance than upstairs.
Of course, just because it's an LGBT club doesn't mean it's loved by the entire community: nights like Lock Up Your Daughters at the Flying Duck and Menergy show that, like mainstream appetites, one size doesn't fit all.
But for lovers of sheer camp fun, novices or those dipping their toes, there's really no better place than here.
