If you can imagine the jazz bar from Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s movie La La Land – these are the vibes this new bar is going for.
Dark wood, dark walls and dark wooden flooring and dark leather seating, light up by warm led lights around the bar, candles on the tables and golden spotlights around the room – dimly lit as they put it.
Its so classy and slick you feel like James Bond (only in Glasgow). Its not really a place you get absolutely sloshed and let your hair down but more the kind of bar to take your partner on a date – not in a bad way!
Activities & Atmosphere
The bar lay on a number of activities throughout the month to entice local Glaswegians in.
Wednesday night is quiz night – as of course almost ever bar and pub have a weekly quiz night! Winner receives a free round of drinks and a £40 voucher on their next visit!
As well as this Friday night has been christened live music night! With local ‘guys and guitars’ performing covers of everyone’s favourite songs. They play from 9pm-11pm before the party kicks off!
The bar is placed in the easily accessible and stylish Merchant City. Merchant City is bustling with restaurants, night club, luxury designer shops and quirky bars. It’s an excellent spot for a Christmas night out or a summer beer garden. Anything you will ever want is featured in Merchant City – with an excellent addition of this vintage whiskey bar.
These cocktails may be a little pricey but the whiskey is vintage after all!!
Some of the best Scottish vintage whiskey is used in these glamorous cocktails which are priced between £9 and £13. The Golden Cup mixed with a scotch soaked sugar cube and prosecco is classy and fabulous where the 007 which is mixed with lemon and ginger beers is strong and classic.
The bar puts huge effort into presentation – making the drinks as Insta-worthy as possible. This is a great marketing technique as its a free way to get people noticing you and talking about you.

Within the driving world there are a wide variety of hazards and problems that new drivers face. This list breaks a down a few handy tips and tricks to help you get ahead in the driving world from anything from basic car maintenance to buying a car and the benefits of a 1 week driving course.
Intensive 1 week driving course
There are a number of advantages to opting for an intensive driving course. All Pass Driving suggests that these courses allow people to get on the road quickly if a license for driving is needed more urgently. Additionally, there is less gaps in between lessons meaning that you are unlikely to forgot basic checks or manoeuvres as you will be doing them throughout the day which will help you remember them through muscle memory. Furthermore, another great advantage of a 1 week driving course is it is extremely cost effective meaning you get good value for money.
Nowadays with so much technology in cars predictably more things can and will fail in time. However, in this day and age of motoring a large number of new motorists aren’t being taught the bare bones of driving. Doing routine checks such as tyre tread, oil level check, washer liquid check and brake light and headlight checks are second nature to many. Despite this driving schools in some cases are neglecting these important facts and leaving it to the new drivers to figure out. In order to quickly check your tyre tread one tip is to place a 20p coin within the grooves of your tyre. If the tyre is within the legal tread limit the outer part of the 20p the outer band should be obscure. Another tip is to check your tyres pressure level at least once every two weeks. Tyre pressure can affect fuel economy, handling and performance and can also indicate leaks or punctures. Ensure your tyres are filled to the manufacturer’s specification.
Defensive driving is probably one of the most common
buzzwords in driving and within your first year you come to know exactly why
that is. Drivers need to be quick to react to hazards as well as be wary of
other road users. Our advice would be to be wary of other road users and
familiarise yourself with the size and position of your car. One of the most
common issues is drivers fail to remember where their wheels are in relation to
their driving position. If possible, leave
at least 1 car length between you and the vehicle in front so you can respond
to their driving if needed.
Buying a car
When going to buy a car one of the most important factors other
than price is of course the condition of the car and its overall safety.
However ironically enough this often is overlooked by many new drivers as the car
is presented shiny and new looking on a forecourt. Generally, more experienced
drivers tend to know how a car feels better and can spot warning signs such as heavy
brakes, light steering and poor suspension pretty quickly. However younger drivers
looking for their first or second cars may not be as savvy when it comes to
purchasing a car. Generally speaking it is best to bring a friend who has good
experience of motoring or even purchase a vehicle check from a mechanic to get
the car checked over before you buy for peace of mind.
