Millennial Mondays at Blythswood Square Hotel

Millennial Mondays at Blythswood Square Hotel- Working at The Salon Bar

Are you a blogger or digital influencer based in or around Glasgow? If you are, Mondays are about to get even better! Today marks the official start to Millennial Mondays at Blythswood Square Hotel. Glasgow’s most renowned address aims to match the youthful personality of the city by encouraging local bloggers, digital influencers and creatives to hang out in the Salon Bar.

As I work full time in the IT Industry, I mainly write all my blog posts in my living room in the evenings or at weekends. The downfall is that you can be easily distracted by life and I don’t know about you, but I find it better blogging in new surroundings, people watching and sipping coffee. That is when Millennial Mondays kicks in.

Every Monday, Blythswood Square Hotel will offer complimentary smoothies, refillable tea and coffees along with pastries within the Salon Bar between 9am-5pm. Along with free wi-fi, this is the perfect location to get your creative juices flowing. If you’re feeling hungry nearer lunch, together with brand partners, ROX you’ll also receive 20% off food in bar between Sunday-Thursday. Trust me when I say the food is worth every penny. I’ve never once had a bad meal here.

Millennial Mondays at Blythswood Square Hotel- Brunch Selection

Last week, I joined bloggers The Everyday Man and Lafotka for a special ‘Millennial Brunch’ to kick-start the new initiative. Bloggers, Digital Influencers and TV Personalities joined forces to celebrate over a rather delightful brunch. From those I spoke to, everyone is loving that Blythswood Square Hotel is at the forefront, engaging with millennials in Scotland. Not something you normally find with 5 star hotels and outside of London.

During brunch and catching up with friends, ROX held a prize draw and miraculously, I won! I rarely win anything and I can only thank Lafotka for picking my postcard out of the bag. I’m now the owner of matching earrings and necklace. Now who says Mondays are bad?

Note: Want to be part of Millennial Mondays and spend your day within The Salon Bar? Send your request to @SkapaPR on Twitter and also tag @BlythswoodSq. Once approved, you’ll be given a special card and key ring to enable you to take advantage of Millennial Mondays offers along with being sent exclusive offers unique to millennials.
