Cosmopolitan area of Glasgow city centre. Well known for its bars and good restaurants. Worth a visit.
As a Scot who has lived in England for a long time my experience of nights out in Glasgow are pretty limited now. When I do go out during visits it invariably ends up in the Merchant City area.

This area of glasgow is great. Lots of lovely places to eat inc chophouse, the committee rooms, citation, plus if u dont fancy a fancy meal there is a few italian places offering great value 2 course lunches for under a tenner. I would rec piazza italia good value and service.
The Merchant City was excellent. The scallop appetizer was fantastic and the desert was scintillatingly subtle. My main was very good, but the prawns were over cooked. No big deal compared to how good everything else was. The service was excerpt and they advised me when u could get a table on a busy Friday evening. Love it!
Lots of good pubs, friendly people and restaurants with really tasty food. Lots of locals even midweek. Never nervous wandering around in the evening. Great place near to the city centre. Loved it.
We walked around this area on our first evening in Glasgow and it reminded us of Convent Garden. A really buzzing and lively atmosphere, lots of lovely little bars and eateries, some great shops and i want to go back and do some shopping.
