Brutti ma Buoni is a hotel bar in Merchant City that's popular with more than just the guests in residence. Located in Brunswick Hotel, Brutti ma Buoni means "ugly but good" in Italian - though this joint is far from ugly, and draws an attractive crowd of Merchant City trendy young professionals. Early evening, it makes for a great date location, while later on at weekends, the music gets turned up and a pre-club crowd file in to start the party.

Clean and modern, the venue is styled like a cafe bar in Milan or Rome with wooden features, stylish stool and booth seating and a fuss-free finish. Eats are Mediterranean-inspired, with a wide choice of topped breads and tapas with burgers and baguettes filling bigger plates. To wash it down, cava and wine options are many, while there's also a generous helping of draught and bottled beers and premium spirits.

This bar is in a great location and is beautifully designed; very trendy and clean design, so great for young professionals and drinks with the girls. Unfortunately, the crowd there when I visited were ultra super hipsters, screaming, falling and changing the bar music every five seconds as if it was a house party...then proceeded to dance on the bar like it was Coyote Ugly; Glasgow style...maybe I'm being too picky? too much of a granny? Just kind of ruined the mood when trying to have a glass of wine with the girls.

Please avoid this hotel if you want to spend your money in an honest establishment. They withheld a security deposit, then produced a SECOND set of terms and conditions to justify their actions. Their staff then came up with several untrue stories, none of them matching. *Comment Moderated*, but seem to be an ineffectual organisation when it comes to getting justice in these situations. This is probably why dishonest hotels like The Brunswick are rife in the UK and keep getting away with stunts like these. Again, AVOID this disgrace of a place. If you want to risk it, I strongly recommend NOT handing over a deposit and asking for the terms and conditions not publicly advertised and withheld by the hotel (the word document with extra T's & C's typed on to the end! Not joking unfortunately!) Disgusting experience from beginning to end. I will be very careful in the future (the only good thing to come out of this experience).

Prob my favourite hotel bar in Glasgow. Great for date drinks or a quite chat with friends over some wine. Lovely simple decor and normally quite a good vibe
