The Finnieston

2 user reviews 5

The Finnieston on Argyle Street is a cracking cosy venue. Rustic decor, a stone fireplace, old fashioned bookshelves and bench style seating make this one toasty hangout. With great food and incredible cocktails it's the sort of place where the world outside just sort of stops while you're in there. A great spot for a catch up with friends or laid back date night in Glasgow.

Slouch has some of the comfiest, cosiest couches in Glasgow, making it a rather special hideaway on a cold day in the city. Stay on 'til the evening and you're in for a treat, Slouch do some mega eats, as well as churn out live blues and jazz sessions almost every night. If a little soul food and soul music can't warm your cockles, nowt can. 

The Glad Cafe

2 user reviews 5

The Glad Cafe has a homely feel from the minute you step inside, making it one of the cosiest bars in Glasgow. Not only has it got great food, fantastic live music and cultural events, and toasty vibes, but the do good nature of this not for profit cafe bar, means you get a ready-made fuzzy glow just by being a patron.

Stravaigin is one of the most quaint hideaways in Glasgow, and the perfect place to sit over great food, great wine and great conversation on a cold winter's night in Glasgow. From the higgledy piggledy layout, creating toasty corners and caverns, to the fairy lights adorning the bar, the rustic wood and original stonework, this whole bar oozes cosy, add in some hearty grub, and it'll take a whole heap of strength to leave again. 

Rab Ha's

Rab Ha's is a mighty cosy pub in Merchant City. Not only is it a short dash from the Buchanan Street shops in bad weather, but it's also got some of the toasty vibes, the best comfort food and the most friendly staff in the area. If you're looking for a bar to turn a bad day around, Rab Ha's is just the spot.
