What they say:

Endeavouring to add an innovative edge to Glasgow's bar and club scene, dynamic duo "Boteco Do Brasil" owner Luigi Aseni and Gary Hermans have united to deliver a swathe of South American snazziness to this ever-popular, energy-fuelled district. Unusual and exciting, encompassing both bubbly and chilled vibes, mainly salsa sounds, reggae rhythms and latin-style songs will amplify over the d-floor letting that laid-back, easy-going holiday feel carry you straight to the Caribbean.

What we say:

Glasgow might not see the sun as often as Jamaica does, but take off on vacation at this exotic party escape, where a range of reggae records set that relaxed tone for a soothing slice of South America and the Caribbean. An atmosphere as vibrant as the arty montage of colourful posters scrappily splatted across the wall, as well as their throng of tropical twist tipples and selection of scrummy street-food-style tapas, we imagine Mango Tropical Bar & Restaurant will no doubt make you and your cronies yearn for your travelling days.
