Glasgow is one of the UK’s most up and coming cities with lots of new brunch spots, quirky restaurants and trendy bars opening up around the city centre. One of the news spots is a whiskey bar who specialise in vintage whiskey cocktails. Here is our review!
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.
