Nestled amongst the various pubs and restaurants that line Glasgow’s lively Argyle Street, The Finnieston is a name that stands out. Known throughout the city for their impeccable seafood as well as their gin bar, The Finnieston is one of the West End’s best-loved establishments. Whether it’s for a meal or drinks, this popular bar and restaurant pulls in crowds from all over the city so book a table in advance to avoid disappointment.
Atmospheric, welcoming and with excellent staff and food choices. Seats rather uncomfortable and gents toilet rather cramped but otherwise a perfect place for celebration. Recommended.
food good though portion control appeared to have taken over! Been before and been excellent, however on this occasional they seemed to have lost the edge.
Located in Finnieston, an area that was once a derelict wasteland and is now home to a number of trendy, upscale bars and eateries, The Finnieston bar and restaurant was one of the first establishments to turn this Glasgow district into a West End hotspot. Situated right on Argyle Street, this stylish joint focuses on creating dishes from sustainable and ethically-sourced Scottish produce.
From decadent options like oysters with panko bread crumbs, wasabi emulsion and black sesame to old classics like market-fresh fish and chips served with tartare sauce, pea compote and a jar of pickles, The Finnieston’s menu is full of choices. We recommend sharing some of the small plates like stuffed Shetland squid, pan-seared Tarbet scallops and steamed lemon sole to sample the best of the Scottish seafood on offer. Also boasting Glasgow’s original and best gin cocktail bar, you’ll find a lengthy list of junipery concoctions on offer at The Finnieston as well as a range of speciality beers, making it a favourite West End spot for both drinks and dinner.
