Situated bang in the middle of Glasgow's Royal Exchange Square, The Social couldn't be in a better location. Just adjacent to Buchanan Street, the Merchant City bar offers cocktails, wine, coffee and food in a central location, but just the right distance away from the hustle and bustle of Glasgow's main shopping destination. By day at the Social, you can people watch and enjoy a drink on the very own pavement cafe and by night, the slick and stylish bar transforms into real party club under a blanket of twinkly lighting. Who needs stars when you have fairy lights? 

The food at The Social is served throughout the day, with a number pizzas and grill favourites on the menu. As for drinks, cocktails are the most popular choice, with a number of premium spirits and bottles on offer if you're looking to splash the cash. A fun party bar in Glasgow with a chic, young professional crowd, The Social is the perfect Merchant City destination to place to meet up with friends (the clue is in the name!) and enjoy a drink in the summer months, or party in to the night at weekends.

Enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks and food here, Worth visiting with work colleagues after work. If you are looking to start off the night this is a good first location. I recommend the trio food tasters if you're peckish but don't want to order a meal in the middle of drinks.

My after-work haunt, myself and my colleagues go to The Social several Fridays a month (and the odd Thursday too!) great place t sit if there weather's warm.
