Thaikhun Glasgow

Sometimes you need a vibrant venue to get that first date conversation flowing, so look no further than Thaikhun. Channelling the atmosphere from Thailand's capital city Bangkok, the venue serves delicious and authentic food, while the interiors provide a laid-back setting.


If you want something a little different to do on a first date, then you're bound to find something good at ARTÀ. They've got cracking comedy nights to break the ice with a bit of laughter, as well as throwback tribute nights and quirky cabaret shows.

Grosvenor Café

If you're in search of the best bars for a first date in Glasgow, Grosvenor Cafe on Ashton Lane is a great shout from brunch right through to dinner. Shimmy on over to chomp on scrumptious grub like pizzas, burgers and flat iron steak, or sink delicious drinks like the Pink Cucumber cocktail together from the striking central bar - it also has its own basement cinema if you fancy carrying on the evening.

Stack & Still

A trip to Stack & Still is one of the best first date ideas in Glasgow city centre. It offers almost 12 million different combinations of pancakes on its menu. Whether you're going sweet or savoury, make sure to check out the self-dispense bar area where you can pour your own drinks.
