Babbity Bowster

Description

A neat little hotel, with one of Glasgow's most popular beer gardens, Babbity Bowster is nestled on a quiet street on the fringes of Merchant City. The building was an 18th century, tobacco merchants' house and incorporates the cafe bar, along with the hotel and restaurant. Understated decor makes for a friendly, inviting vibe with great painted woods, simple cream walls, a homely turf fire and worn-in seating. The garden outside is a major asset with picnic tables and umbrellas making for a laid back, (almost) all-weather space. 

The crowd here are a more casual bunch than your typical Merchant City set, with trad fans loading in for Sunday sessions. Dubbing itself a "conversation bar" Babbity Bowster allows the hum of patrons to create the soundtrack, making it a nice spot for a quiet drink with the paper.
