If Carrie Bradshaw drank in Glasgow City Centre, she would undoubtedly drink in October. Formerly November, October is a chic cocktail bar situated on the top floor of Prince's Square shopping plaza on Buchanan Street. Recently refurbished, with an open balcony-style setting, you have the perfect seat in the house to sip your cocktail and spy on everyone dining below - or just enjoy a catch up with friends if you're not the spying type (like *ahem, us). By day, the kitchen is serving up sides and salads to nibble on and by night there's a whole host of mains and special deals to line your stomach before hitting the bar for drinks offers, tasty cocktails and fun times. 

The vibe and setting of this stylish bar is a glamorous one, drawing a mix of glossy young professionals and students. With DJs after dark, this Glasgow bar is a lively place to drink and dance until late at weekends, while midweek with slick decor and smooth lighting, lends the bar to a sophisticated first date venue. Hey, even if it's a bad one, the heavily stocked bar will ease the encounter along with a vast array of innovative and quirky cocktails. Eats at October are an extensive selection of tasty bar food, with a market menu changing daily. For special nights out, October offers booth bookings and cocktail masterclasses, while the balcony of the Buchanan Street bar can be hired out for private events, parties, or heck, just to be a diva for the night.

With everything from burgers to small plates, daiquiris to ales, and students to professionals, this City Centre bar has something for everyone. Except those with vertigo, of course.
