Curler's Rest

5 user reviews 4

Curler's Rest is a charming bar in the West End and the perfect hideaway after a chilly day trawling the boutiques on Byres Road. Curl up by the fire, get a glass of wine into you, dig into some comfort food, and soak up the atmosphere.

With its pretty fairy lights, Stravaigin is a festive bar in Glasgow all year round, but it's also a gorgeous bar to visit at near Christmas. Get lost in their wooden-clad, enchanted forest of a bar, which has plenty of nooks and crannies for date night, and a whopping whisky collection to keep the winter chill at bay.

Hummingbird is a likely spot to drink at Christmas time in Glasgow, so if you're looking for a few bevvies someplace stylish to get you feeling festive, this is the place to come. Quiet in the early evening, it's a relaxed sojourn for post shopping drinks, before heating up in the evening, with the perfect level of Christmas craziness.
