At Ad Lib Restaurant and Bar on Hope Street - a mere saunter from Central Station - you can get your chops around some of Glasgow’s juiciest gourmet burgers and steaks, eat and dance your way through the weekend, or chill out in their stylish New York themed bar in true Yankee style. Ad Lib offers a sophisticated dining and drinking experience, where you can indulge underneath the sparkle of the glass ceiling in the central seating area, or chill out in a booth if you’d prefer a more intimate affair. 

Along with its colossal menu of edible American, Mexican and Italian temptations, the Ad Lib bar boasts an impressive variety of beers and an excellent wine list. Infusing a not to the Nig Apple in its decor, a gigantic Times Square mural takes centre stage. On a Friday and Saturday night at Ad Lib, you can boogie off any over-indulgence with a mix of Soul Kitchen grooves, with classic jazz, funk and soul spinning out 'til late. Alternatively – you can keep those tasty dishes a’coming - with the full menu available right through until 2am. If you're up for a challenge and like to eat BIG - check out the Ad Lib Monster Burger Competition, or enter the Chilli Con Carnival challenge to put your culinary skills to the test.

Absolutely loved the food here; I highly recommend their BBQ ribs, Mac n Cheese, pulled pork burgers...and pretty much everything else on the menu. I haven't stayed here for a drink before, but I would be more than happy to sit and have a few beers after dinner, Highly recommend.
