With all the fun of Las Vegas, Alea Glasgow Casino is a swanky joint located right by the river. The venue has a sophisticated bar to sip cocktails, several games rooms to play a round of black jack, roulette or poker and also hosts some stellar tribute nights.
Once a Victorian ice-cream parlour, Kelvingrove Cafe is now one of the most chic and elegant venues that you’ll stumble upon in the West End. Impressing with its stylish blend of exposed brick, leather booths and a centrepiece brass bar, relax in style and sophistication with a couple of drinks at this grown-up and well travelled bar.
A stylish yet unpretentious hangout for Glasgow's movers and shakers, 29 is one of the most exclusive clubs in Glasgow.

Boasting one of Glasgow's only rooftop terraces as well as a whole host of spaces for entertaining, from private dining rooms to hopping club nights, 29 is a popular space for weddings and events.
Rooms don't get more grand than Teller's Bar in The Corinthian Club. The Merchant City bar has a jaw-droppingly stunning glass dome ceiling, and below the exquisite focal point is a room dripping in luxe features from elaborate cornicing to decadent furnishing. While this place doesn't have a strict door policy (and the drinks are shockingly cheap for a joint this swanky), its decor does ooze exclusivity.
Ever feel like packing up your bags and booking a flight to NYC? With Blue Dog knocking about, there’s really no need.

Dress to impress and enjoy a few classic and contemporary cocktails; you won’t forget Blue Dog’s stylish ambience any time soon.
A rather special hotel bar, Blythswood is as friendly and charming as it is suave and stylish. Gold and marble meet tweed and tartan at this Glasgow bar. While you don't have to flash your Rolex to get in here, Blythswood Square does attract a certain sharp clientele. A bar that's dressed to impress, this is the place to come for a special date, swish business drinks, or extra chic cocktails with friends.
A sophisticated hang out in the Hilton Hotel, The Connich is a Central Glasgow bar with understated elegance. While it's still feels a tad too hotel-like for some, the extensive beverage selection and smart surroundings make this a select spot for a swanky drink.
While its glory days may be behind it, the Oyster Bar at Rogano still carries an air of elegance and exclusivity to it. With a rolodex of movie stars, musicians and politicians having walked through its doors and lapped up its lavish art deco ambiance, this is one Glasgow bar that will never lose its luxe factor.
