Horn Please is a wonderful themed bar in Glasgow, having modelled and named itself after the phrase Indian food trucks have printed on their back and sides. The interiors are colourful furnishings matched against exposed brickwork, and the menu is packed with delicious ‘new concept Indian cuisine’, all of which can be washed down by delicious cocktails.
The Tiki Bar and Kitsch Inn brings exotic island life to the (often grey and dreary) city centre of Glasgow. Enjoy one of their fruity cocktail creations served up in amazing glassware - no standard Ikea glasses here - and marvel at the island themed decor. This themed restaurant in Glasgow serves up some delicious Thai food too, which is ideal for filling your belly between cocktails.
Bar Soba is an Asian themed restaurant in Glasgow that has been around since 1999, serving up Asian inspired street food to the people of Glasgow. They call their menu a "culinary tour of South Asia" and we're inclined to agree. From delicious sushi to Thai curries to big noodle bowls, this themed restaurant in Glasgow certainly covers it all. If that wasn't enough, they also do a pretty darn good cocktail too. If you're a student, make sure you check out their West End location too, with special offers on every day of the week.
Bar Gumbo is a popular themed restaurant in Glasgow that brings the spirit of America's southern states to the West End. Their food is inspired from some of America's most popular dishes, such as barbecued pulled pork, jalapeño fried cornbread and blackened cajun catfish. This themed restaurant is known for their wide variety of music too, with jazz and blues being order of the day and regular live acts taking to the stage.
Ad Lib is a themed restaurant in Glasgow with a New York diner vibe. This restaurant even has a dedicated "New York menu" which is perfect for diners looking to sample the food that Ad Lib is known for. Weekends are the main event at this themed restaurant though, with DJs spinning some vintage soul and funk tunes between 11pm-3am. Ad Lib's super tasty menu is served until 2am so we can guarantee you won't go hungry.
Boteco Do Brasil brings all things Brazilian to the Merchant City, offering an entire menu of Brazilian inspired cocktails and their dinner menu, of course, follows suit. This themed restaurant in Glasgow serves a variety of tasty dishes from South America's largest country, including Brazil's version of the Sunday lunch. Sounds pretty tasty to us.
