Review: The White Elephant, Merrylee Road

When I first moved to the south side of Glasgow I was aghast. “But we are MILES from the city centre”, I moaned to my partner at every available opportunity. However it didn’t take me long to change my mind. I quickly discovered that the south side of Glasgow is a thriving little community with some absolutely fab places to eat and drink. Step up Church on the Hill, one of my favourite south side haunts. So when I discovered… Keep Reading

Review: La Vita Spuntini, Byres Road

Whenever my boyfriend and I decide to go out for dinner we end up in the same situation every time… sitting with our phones out googling ‘best places to eat in Glasgow.’ Now, there must be thousands of restaurants in the city, but deciding where to go is always a mammoth task. We’re also unable to be spontaneous anymore after the night we walked around the city centre for the best part of two hours unable to make a decision…. Keep Reading

Review: Banana Leaf, Cambridge Street

When my girlfriend suggested we go for a meal to Banana Leaf on Cambridge Street recently, I have to admit I had never heard of the Malaysian/Chinese restaurant before, but as someone who has always been a fan of Chinese food I had to give it a try. Just a short walk from Stow College and right across the road from the Thistle Hotel it is in a quieter part of town even on weekends, but still close enough to… Keep Reading

Review: The Sparkle Horse, Dowanhill Street

The Sparkle Horse opened its doors about 9 months ago, replacing The Dowanhill which stood there before it. Now angling itself much more towards the trendy West End market, we went along to sample the food, drink and atmosphere of this new Partick staple. The interior of the bar has been left relatively unchanged from its predecessor, simply given a freshening up with a lick of black paint on the walls and a bit of reupholstering. The bar has a… Keep Reading

Review: Brel, Ashton Lane

I’ve always loved Brel, being one of my regular haunts ever since my student days at Glasgow Uni. When I heard it had been bought over and that they were making big changes, I was a tad skeptical of what the outcome would be, but we went in with an open mind! Read on to hear how it went… There haven’t been any major renovations to the interior of the bar, however big changes are afoot in the conservatory area… Keep Reading

Review: Brew Dog, Argyle Street

Brew Dog’s Glasgow bar opened in 2011 and, sandwiched a tad uncomfortably between the City Centre and West End, it’s very much a bar that most people need to go deliberately out of their way to visit. Fortunately for them, it’s very quickly proven its worth becoming one of the hottest bars in the city. It’s a bar that people are willing to travel to because, refreshingly in this day and age, it offers something a bit different. Brew Dog… Keep Reading

Review: Vespbar, City Centre

Vespbar is a retro-styled Italian restaurant in the heart of the city centre, just half a block from Central Station. Not long opened, Get Out Glasgow were invited along to try out their new menu. Read on to see what we thought! When you walk into Vespbar it can initially be a tad confusing – it’s styled and laid out as an all out bar, but is selling itself as a restaurant. This caused some confusion as, when walking in,… Keep Reading

Review: Broadcast, Sauchiehall Street

New kid on the block, Broadcast opened just a few months ago and, as a gig venue through promoters PCL, is attracting a lot of the bands ‘du moment’. We heard good things about the food though so thought we’d jump over and give it a try! When we walked into the bar off Sauchiehall Street, to be honest we didn’t have the best first impressions. 6pm on a Friday and the place was empty bar one table. It’s a… Keep Reading

Review: Nice ‘N’ Sleazy, Sauchiehall Street

I’ve been going to Sleazy’s for years. A regular student haunt, it’s always been a brilliant pub, but used to offer cheap food with quality to match. In more recent times things have gone significantly uphill with the introduction of “Meathammer Ltd” in the kitchen. I’ll be honest, I’ve looked into this and can’t for the life of me figure out if this an external company or just the one team giving the kitchen a fancy name, but frankly I… Keep Reading

Review: Sloans, City Centre

Sloans, situated in the heart of the city, nestled between Argyle and Sauchiehall Streets and at the foot of the stretch of expensive ring emporia in the Argyle Arcade presents itself as Glasgow’s oldest bar and restaurant. Whilst probably not the longest-surviving booze pedlar in the town, this impressive (listed) building certainly retains some old-fashioned charm. From the beautiful mosaic tiles on the entrance steps to the fine details on each and every chair in the snug, this is a… Keep Reading
