Named after the trendy part of Glasgow that this gastropub is located in, visitors get the sense of entering a ship upon arrival at The Finnieston; from the ornate low wooden ceilings to the stained glass walls separating the seating booths.
Specialising in gin, this spot offers a number of drinks lists, including ones dedicated to the Martini, G&Ts, classic gin tipples and contemporary cocktails. Try a Finnieston Club Cocktail for a taste of Glaswegian cocktail culture, with Tanqueray, house-made orange sherbet, lime juice, grenadine and Yellow Chartreuse – a great sharpener for the start of the meal. The Scottish G&T, meanwhile, is a reasonable £4.50, and made with Caorunn Gin, Fentimans Tonic and red apple.
Perfect for after-work drinks or a cosy catch-up meal with friends, this convivial boozer is well worth seeking out.
Best Bars tip: Head down on Sunday for the Scotch beef club, where a beef roast with a glass of wine or beer will cost £15. During lobster season, Tuesday nights see half lobsters offered with fries and a glass of champagne for £15.
