Sex and the City Cocktails in Glasgow
We all know Carrie Bradshaw's drink of choice (that would be a Cosmopolitan) and there's no doubt that the Sex and the City ladies have a lot to do with the surge in popularity that cocktail bars have had over the past decade or so. And while Glasgow may not be quite as glam as NYC, we're never in short supply of great Glasgow bars for cocktails. So where can you go in Glasgow for cocktails that would get the seal of approval from Carrie and co.? Here's our pick of cocktail bars in Glasgow that have a real New York vibe to them, and serve up a mean Cosmo.
Blue Dog is one of Glasgow's dedicated cocktail bars, boasting an extensive menu of old favourites and slightly crazy-but-tasty concoctions. If you're not quite ready for the likes of the Super Zombie (basically, rum, rum, rum and more rum...yikes), you can enjoy classics such as margaritas and cosmos for just £5 each.
Metropolitan has been around for over 10 years and has plenty of experience when it comes to serving top-notch cocktails to Glasgow's discerning types. This Merchant City bar serves classic cocktails and has a wide variety of champagne cocktails for when a celebratory Glasgow night out is in order.
Home to Scotland's most expensive cocktail (put it this way, there's no mention of the actual price), you can be sure that the 29 Private Member's Club is exclusive. This chic Glasgow bar is ideal for a special occasion and make sure you dress for it too - just think, WWCW... what would Carrie wear?
The Corinthian Club offers a small but perfectly formed cocktail menu, including all the classics such as Cosmos, Mojitos and French Martinis. Enjoy one of these beautifully presented drinks in this Glasgow cocktail bar's luxe surroundings and you'll feel like you've been transported into one of New York's most exclusive bars.
Blythswood Square's cocktail menu isn't just an alcohol soaked piece of paper on a table, oh no; it's 40 pages long and describes the history of different types of cocktail. The mixologists at this Glasgow bar know their stuff. The hardest task will be picking a cocktail, but their cheery staff will be more than happy to help you on your way.
Much more than a restaurant, the Butchershop Bar and Grill in Glasgow's West End has an extensive list of cocktails on offer, made the skill of some of Glasgow's most talented mixologists. Enjoy a cocktail (or three!) in surroundings reminiscent of a cool Meat-Packing district eatery at this chilled Glasgow bar.
