Fave Five - Glasgow's West End
Posted on Wednesday, September 28 2016 11:37:00 AM in News by PinkPoodle Staff
Although we sell all over the globe, our foothold has always been in the heart of Glasgow's eclectic west end. A city in miniature, you can get almost anything you want within a few streets from hot yoga and clubbing to old man pubs and high culture.
Here's our top five spots for a drink or a bite to eat (as well with an idea of how to match the vibe of each!)
A truly unique experience, this tea house down a cobbled lane is reminiscent of a Moroccan souk. Relaxed to the point of being horizontal, you can kick back and enjoy shisha, food and over 100 teas. Take a sumptuous notebook, let your mind wander and soak up the arty atmosphere! Visit their website
STYLE TRIBE: Eclectic Boho - think tassels, globally inspired patterns and jewel tones.
This vast space is great for casual dining during the day but it really comes to life at night. Grab a booth with your friends and set the world to rights over a bottle of prosecco. Casual enough to be relaxed, it still attracts a glam crowd, giving you the chance to get on your glad rags and enjoy a margarita or three - cheers! Visit their website
STYLE TRIBE: West End Glamour - sparkle, fizz and more sparkle!
Set off the main drag on Dumbarton road, the Pacific is the ideal place for any rockabilly babes to start their night. Incredible cocktails in a fabulously kitsch setting, they also do an amazing menu of Thai and Mexican inspired food. Delish! Visit their website
STYLE TRIBE: Retro brights - tropical tones with kitschy prints and retro shapes.
Nic's NYC Deli
Let's be honest, sometimes only a bumper carb fest is gonna sort you. If you're feeling slightly delicate, chuck on some comfies and head to Nic's for stateside style bumper bagels (we love the 'Elvis') and a crazy range of donuts that sell out daily. Take your scran and a coffee to go and sit in the botanics for a bit of fresh air and you'll be feeling perky in no time! Visit their website
STYLE TRIBE: Stylish but casual - comfy, cosy and hangover friendly but still bang on trend.
A west end institution, the Chip really comes into its own when the nights start drawing in. Award winning menus, friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in a highland pub rather than off a busy main road. Cosy up with a pint in the pub or head to the brasserie for Scottish comfort food done in style. Visit their website
STYLE TRIBE: Town meets country - heritage shapes and practical pieces with a city twist - neon brights and unexpected prints. Dog not optional...
