Best Events in December

It's the most wonderful time of the year. December is when we all emerge from our winter hibernation, crack out the sequins, stick on a dodgy jumper and make a beeline for the bar. Glorious. And while 2020 may look a little different to previous years, we're still getting into the party spirit, virtual or not. Check out our guide to the best Glasgow events this month, from festive feasting to online cocktail classes and Santa scavenger hunts.

The mulled wine is warming, the knitted jumpers are on and festive menus are out in full force. It can only mean one thing; Christmas is coming. We've rounded up the best events, bars and restaurants that are making the most of December with socially-distanced dining and bubble-friendly bashes.

From hearty feasts of roast turkey with pools of rich gravy and all the trimmings to tasty veggie alternatives and indulgent puds, these are the best restaurants for a Christmas lunch in Glasgow. Elasticated trousers at the ready, people.

Mondays and Tuesdays in December offer a gift of festive flicks and tasty treats to Glaswegians. Head down to opulent ballroom Sloans to kick back with a Christmas classic, cosy main, gorgeous dessert and a themed cocktail. Your Rudolph's rum is waiting...

While lockdown may still be very much a thing, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on your favourite nosh. Whether you're craving steaming slices of sourdough pizza, a spicy curry or even a Sunday roast, these are the Glasgow restaurants that are now delivering.

Sick of staring at a screen? Don your comfiest shoes and get ready to pound Glasgow's pavements. From gorgeous gardens to waterside strolls and city centre trails, we've collated the prettiest walks and where to grab a cosy lunch after.
