The Squid & Whale


The Squid & Whale is a bright cantina bar with a passion for Deep South seafood, and chilled vibes. With a central location on the Great Western Road, this Glasgow bar has a friendly feel, independently run, the bar places as much effort on it's ambiance as it does its food. From the kitchen, the offering is a flavoursome, seafood-heavy blend of dishes from South America, Mexico and Louisiana. Blackened fish, pulled pork, jambalaya and shrimp & grits are all menu hightlights. At the bar, a wide selection of bottled ales and craft beers are stocked from around the world.

The interior of The Squid and Whale is bright and airy yet cosy, with high ceilings, tall windows and touches of Mexican cantina decor. Sunny outside seating makes this a bustling spot when the sun shines. The crowd here are a bustling bunch of friendly West Enders, in for chowing down and chats. From easy going vibes, to great food, interesting beers, and cool interiors, The Squid & Whale is a real treat among bars in Glasgow.
