The 13th Note Café/Bar

50–60 King Street, Glasgow, G1 5QT

Situated in a great little section of the city, The 13th Note exudes hipster cool without appearing unapproachable. A recent redecoration has freshened up the interior without losing any of its much loved ‘lived in’ look. The décor aside, people make a…

Stock Exchange House, 69 Nelson Mandela Place, Glasgow, G2 1BT

Ad Lib

33 Ingram Street, Glasgow, G1 1HA

Like its older sister, Ingram Street’s Ad Lib remains in vogue through an intriguing portfolio of changing menus, with regular foodie events, such as chilli con carnival and best burger competition, proving to be a big hit. Similarly, their monster…

The Admiral

72a Waterloo Street, Glasgow, G2 7DA

As numerous bars across this fair city attempt to do many things at once, few could claim to be doing it quite as successfully as the Admiral on Waterloo Street. It seems to comfortably court all sections of society at once and a cursory glance around…

All Bar One

Alston Bar & Beef

Central Station, 79 Gordon Street, Glasgow, G1 3SQ

Bucking the usual avoid-at-all-costs nature of train station eating, this beef and gin specialist is one of the hot dining tickets in town. The subtle doorway at the main entrance to Central Station is one of the most transformative in town, propelling…

The Arches Café Bar & Restaurant

253 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8DL

In the shadow of Central Station, under the railway arches which give the venue its name, the Arches is wonderfully schizophrenic. Sweat coats the walls and beats reverberate during club nights like Pressure – also the name of a cocktail in the bar.


The Old Cheesemarket, 62 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1PA

The Arthouse

Babbity Bowster

16–18 Blackfriars Street, Glasgow, G1 1PE

Located in an old tobacco merchant’s house on the periphery of the Merchant City, Babbity Bowster is a pleasantly secluded place for a drink and some good food, particularly in the beer garden if the sun is shining on this evocative street. Babbity…

Baby Grand

3–7 Elmbank Gardens, Glasgow, G2 4NQ

Serving up music and main courses to Glasgow diners for 20 years, it’s clear they might be on to something here and there’s no sense they want to fix what isn’t broken. There’s a faded charm, though the traditional menu isn’t quite cheek to cheek with…


80 Glassford Street, Glasgow, G1 1UR

Weekends are busy at this Merchant City bar, catering for the post-work and pre-club crowd. The interior is stylish, with comfy low cushioned benches, bar stools and standard tables offering seating options to suit your night. Be careful to arrive early…

The Bank Café Bar

443 Clarkston Road, Glasgow, G44 3LL

The Maclay Inns group, five of whose premises are featured in this section, tend to choose interesting buildings for their ventures that add a nice bit of character. In the case of The Bank it is, indeed, a former bank, now popular residential café/bar…

Bar Gandolfi

64 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1NY

The wee sister of long-term Glasgow culinary heavyweight Café Gandolfi, this wooden-clad attic hideout is a real gem in the Merchant City. High quality food is what the Gandolfi name is renowned for and it is the same food on offer in the café that…

Bar Groove

78 Union Street, Glasgow, G1 3QS

Bar Gumbo

71–77 Byres Road, Glasgow, G11 5HN

Bar Gumbo is set apart from the recent and popular movement towards North American cuisine by adopting a regional identity. The New Orleans vibe is keenly felt through dishes that include Dixie-battered catfish and shrimp gumbos, while sides, such as…

Bar 91

91 Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1NP

Bar 91 nestles inconspicuously into the Candleriggs, but inside is airy, with stone floor and bare brick lending a minimal, industrial feel, and in the event of sunny weather the whole frontage opens out, colonising the street. The emphasis is on good…

Bar Soba

116–122 Byres Road, Glasgow, G12 8TB

The younger, more studenty twin of the City Centre Soba is made up of a restaurant, which only opens during weekends or busy periods, and a lively bar, which can attract loud crowds. The hip urban interior features funky graffiti, exposed brickwork and…

Bar Soba

11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU

It’s all about the design at Bar Soba – especially since this incarnation of the bar-diner had an upgrade in 2013 to keep up with its younger sibling. With plenty of reclaimed wood, bare bricks and concrete furnishings, there’s an underlying industrial…

Barça Tapas and Cava Bar

Princes Square, 48 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, G1 3JN

Located on the top floor of the lovely Princes Square shopping centre, Barca Tapas is a classy establishment. Grab a seat at one of two terrace areas, and peruse the extensive menu boasting about the 'delicious simplicity' of dishes. This is best…

The Bath Street Palomino

207 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4HZ

Slightly off the beaten track but well placed for both lunching shoppers and theatre-goers, this is a bar worth seeking out. Decked out like a swish cocktail bar – and serving excellent mixed drinks such as the Fennel Destination with rum and fennel…

Beer Cafe

78 Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1NP

The Belle

617 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 8HX

A welcome haven in what is a rather quiet stretch of Great Western Road; the Belle occupies a space within the West End consciousness like very few other bars. Due to its popularity, acquiring a table can at times be a trial in public relations, but…
