The Finnieston

The Finnieston Glasgow Cocktail Smugglers Sour

The Finnieston Glasgow Cocktail Smugglers SourNamed 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.
