Where to eat
Right, as much as people think it is all deep-fried Mars bars and haggis, there is a great food scene in Glasgow, so I’ll do a quick top 3:
Paesano – Pizza the Italians would travel for.
Crabshakk – As fresh as seafood gets.
Ox and Finch – It’s like Scottish tapas – strange, but it works. You might actually get a deep-fried Mars bar here.
Where to drink
The Pot Still – Whisky, locals, pies and Whisky.
Bananamoon – As edgy as a second hand rubix cube
Max’s bar – Good tunes, cool people and the danger of a big night out as the nightclub La Cheeta is directly downstairs.
Tabac – Slap bang in the city centre with lots of good people and members of the bar and music scene coming through the door.
Inn deep – A great spot next to the river in the westend of the city.
Where to dance
The Berkeley Suite
When to go
This is a hard one, because you are never going to be guaranteed good weather in Glasgow, but I would say May. The temperature hits about 17 degrees and people start to get excited for the summer. Taps aff as they say.
Why you should go
You should go to Glasgow if you up for a good laugh and need a break from all the fakery – In the words of Anthony Bourdain: “ Its Europe’s no bullshit zone”
Yuptae? – What are you up to? / How is your day panning out?
The dancin’ – a nightclub
Swally – Alcohol
A Bam – A person of a lively disposition
Taps Aff – Slightly warm temperature
