The best cocktails in Glasgow

The best cocktails in Glasgow


 

Although not the official capital, Glasgow is for sure the party capital of Scotland, with the humour and friendliness of the locals second to none. From world renowned electronic venue Subclub, to the trendy and upcoming area of Finnieston, the city caters for all tastes. For those looking for fantastic cocktails in Glasgow, look no further.

 

Princesses Head to Princes Square

Situated in the idyllic Princes Square Mall, right in the heart of the city centre, Darcy’s restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for post-work drinks or a night out with the girls. For a refreshing hit try a passion fruit & watermelon caipirissima- it tastes like summer in a cup.

Those with a sweet tooth will adore the liquid desserts such as the cheeky ‘Crème Brûlée Martini’. We won’t tell if you don’t…

 

Top Dawg Drinks

Some may argue this is the only place to go for cocktails in Glasgow. Blue Dog is an iconic piano style bar, with live jazz music creating a chilled atmosphere. We recommend the ‘Royal Coconut Mojito’- as only the best will do for My Cocktail Masterclass.

Remember to have your cameras at the ready – Ed Sheeran recently performed an impromptu gig here!

Read All About It

Full of character and located just off Byres Road in the city’s west end, the Hillhead Bookclub is a vintage bar you want to visit. The ‘cherry bakewell’ cocktail is an almond infused dream and the ‘heart of darkness’ is perfect for coffee lovers.

While you’re there why not take a stroll around the beautiful botanic gardens or search for hidden treasure in the kitsch vintage stores of Byres Road.

 

Booly Marvelous

Specialising in Bloody Marys, The Booly Mardy is the destination for both the ‘hair of the dog’ or evening drinks in a casual yet trendy setting. If the tomato based cocktail isn’t to your taste then try a classic pina colada, the sweet coconutty delight which is the national drink of Puerto Rico.

A little Bit of Paradise

Sun is a rarity in Glasgow, so if you fancy catching some rays then head to the Tiki Bar perched on the lively Bath Street. Just 2 minutes from the King’s Theatre and the clubs of Sauchiehall Street, start your night in exotic style.

Kick back on a ‘peacock’ chair and sip a Caucasian- a delicious concoction of vodka, honey and cream served up in a sugar skull mug. For the daredevil, try one of the intoxicating zombies which are so alcoholic that only 2 can be served per person!
