Arisaig is a wonderful restaurant in the Merchant City that specialises in traditional Scottish dishes with a modern twist. A great place for tourists to visit for a real taste of Scotland. Look out for the seafood specials and of course, haggis and clapshot - you can't visit Scotland without trying haggis (at least) once.

BrewDog Glasgow

2 user reviews

BrewDog is a great bar for tourists looking to sample some craft beers in the shadow of the stunning Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Make the most of the floor length windows by kicking back and people watching with a tasty beer in hand. The perfect post-museum pit-stop, this is definitely one of the most popular bars for tourists in Glasgow.

Nice 'N' Sleazy

4 user reviews

Nice 'n' Sleazy is a must for young, cool tourists in Glasgow looking to mix with likeminded natives. This bar is always busy, a White Russian is the drink of choice and the clientele is mainly laid-back students and quirky young folk. Make sure you try the burgers too, as they're nothing short of brilliant. Not your average tourist bar in Glasgow - Sleazy's is so much cooler than that.

King Tut's Wah Wah Hut

1 user reviews

King Tut's is known for being an integral part of Glasgow's grassroots music scene and is known for being one of the best gig venues in the whole world. If you're visiting Glasgow, make sure you get your hands on some gig tickets for King Tut's, as it's a must-see for tourists. However, King Tut's isn't just a gig venue and has a cracking small but perfectly formed food menu that's well worth trying while you're there.
