Tips from locals
Converted church. Now a restaurant, pub and theatre. Don’t miss their excellent Play, a Pie and a Pint series.
Great Bar, Restaurant and Night Club.... Check out a pie play and a pint at lunch time... details on their website for details!
Have a pint, a pie and watch a play in the Òran Mór (weekly). Òran Mór means big song in Scots Gaelic; for Irish visitors, equivalent of Amhran Mór. It is across from the Botanic gardens.
Multi entertainment venue in a refurbished church - live music, club nights, plays, a selection of dining rooms and drinking bars. Great selection of whisky. Bar open till 3am. Live jazz/bebop/funk in main bar Sundays 5-8pm.
Formerly Kelvinside Parish Church, Òran Mór (literally ‘big song’) has a solid reputation as a cultural/arts centre – it contains a theatre (a nightclub at weekends), two restaurants and a notable whisky bar with a traditional ‘island’ counter, wooden fixtures, bare stone and various artworks…

“Combining traditional Scottish dishes with some new-fangled twists, the restaurant abides by the seasons, going local on everything from produce to venison, and even wine. The atmosphere is as exquisite as the food, with a verdant courtyard that feels a bit like a magical forest. Less expensive, brasserie-style food is served on the upper level, while the Wee Pub — Scotland's smallest! — is a great place for a nightcap”

“Classic example of a Victorian park, designed by Sir Joseph Paxton, and which measures 34 hectares (85 acres). Its set on the banks of the River Kelvin, and is (in my opinion) the best park in Glasgow. Depending on time of day / year, you may find joggers, cyclists, students, dog walkers, skaters and barbecuers all using this wonderfully green space, and the Kelvin walkway cuts right through the park. It's just two minutes walk from the flat, past the bars and restaurants in Gibson street, the entrance is opposite Eusebi's deli.”
