Lanarkshire, probably Barony parish.

The streets changed a lot in Glasgow over the years. "The 1800s" is quite a long time in that context.

If it's in the later 1800s try the Valuation Rolls on Scotland's People.

Or the Mitchell Library.

Water Street is within the Milton Registration District of Glasgow

One way to get an idea of the registration district is to use the census street  indexes on ScotlandsPeople. There may be difference between the census and civil registration districts but it can point you in the right direction. You can find them under "Help and guidance" > "Guidance about records and research" > "Census returns" then clicking on the link for census street indexes. Depending on the address it looks as though Water Street was split between Central and Milton between 1855-1873 and St Rolox and Milton between 1874 and 1900 (you can see the split  on the 25 inch OS map).

Not by any chance the Station Bar, Skoosh?

We had lunch there one day last summer.
