August 2015


Do you know someone who deserves a VIP night out? Someone who has gone the extra mile for you or others, whether it’s big or small? Someone who you’d love to treat to an unforgettable night at The SSE Hydro? 

With Clydesdale Bank, you can nominate someone and be in with the chance to win 2 premium seated tickets for you and your nominee to see one of Glasgow’s best acts and have access to the VIP Hydro Club.

Take That Glasgow 2nd May 2015- Dancers

Sounds good?

Definitely! I was lucky enough to watch Take That and Ella Henderson with Clydesdale Bank and felt like a VIP every step of the way. With premium seated tickets, you get incredible unobstructed stage views ensuring you don’t miss a thing.

Say hello to the new baby on the block, Bó Kantina, the brain child of Burger Meats Bun duo Ben Dantzic and James Forrest. The original Korean-inspired concept bar & restaurant will bring a taste of East Asia to Glasgow when it opens its doors on Tuesday 1st September 2015.

Where is it opening?

Located at 48A West Regent Street, Bó Kantina will combine a laid-back interior and atmosphere with serious Seoul cuisine, using only the finest ingredients sourced from local artisan suppliers and producers, to create a relaxed, but high-quality experience. It will be a hub for east meets west cooking, where bright and tasty dishes will be created through a fusion of sweet, spicy and pickled influences and traditional Western slow-cooking, finished off with a Mexican twist. 

Ever since I first visited Glasgow Central Station’s underground restaurant Alston Bar & Beef,  I’ve been a firm fan, going back time and again. I like to think of Alston as Glasgow’s best kept secret which you enter via a secret passage door – blink and you’ll miss it. I cannot keep raving about the food to everyone around me and if someone asks for any restaurant recommendations in Glasgow, I make sure Alston is at the top of the list.

This time around, I climbed down the Timorous Beasties staircase to sample their new Wednesday Steak & Lobster deal. For £40 for two, you can order a 250g dry aged rump steak, 1/2 North Atlantic lobster or a North Atlantic lobster roll each. The deal also includes a large portion of chips, lashings of garlic butter and a bottle of house wine to share. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a Wednesday. What’s even better is that the deal starts at 12 until closing which means if you want a rather decadent lunch, you can!
