Life | Coolest Hotel in Glasgow? + Fab Food

Shannon Darko

On Thursday at 12pm I was finally free from exams, stress and studying... for a little while anyway! I had just finished my Politics exam and Adam's last exam was the day before so we wanted to celebrate. We had a lovely time so I thought I'd share it with you and let you know about the great places we went so that if you live in Glasgow you can check them out for yourself!

We first went to Toni Macaroni for lunch, where they have a £5 lunch deal, great food and lovely decor, so I'd definitely recommend it!

We then checked into our hotel which was the stylish CitizenM. This was unlike an hotel we'd ever stayed in before, with a massive super king-size bed, a wall-to-wall window and a mood lighting feature. There was also tablet with a personalised welcome message, which was used to control everything in the room - temperature, blinds, TV, lighting etc.

The lighting was probably the most exciting part - we could choose what colour we wanted it and if we wanted it to continually change colours, or we could choose one of the pre-set moods such as "relaxing" or "party". It was so much fun to play around with the tablet and get everything exactly how we wanted it. There are also lots of brand new, free movies available which I thought was a nice touch.

AdLib Glasgow

For dinner we went to AdLib, which is famous for its burgers and they did not disappoint! There's a cosy feel to the place and the staff were lovely.

Steampunk Cafe Glasgow

We then headed to Steampunk Cafe for dessert and drinks. We both went for the lemon cheesecake which was lovely and I had a French Martini while Adam had a Drury St Punch, created by Steampunk themselves.

After that, we went back to the hotel for more drinks as the staff very kindly gave us two complimentary drinks as they knew we were celebrating. We went fancy with a Cham Cham for Adam (Champagne and Chambord) and a Bellini for me (Prosecco and peach). The hotel has so many lovely areas to sit in, full of interesting decor such as the big square chair pictured below!

We had the loveliest night and it was such a great way to relax after all the stress of our exams. I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough but I didn't want to ramble on about it too much in this post so have a look at their website to see for yourself - they have hotels all over the world.

How did you celebrate the end of your exams? And where are your favourite places to visit in Glasgow?

  4. Toni Macaroni!!Just amazing.When we visited there,the staff were friendly and mindful,especially to the youngsters' needs.The pizzas were great.Unquestionably this is a big tick on list of requirements for an Italian restaurant.It may not be fine dining,but rather it doesn't bill itself thusly.It is a family restaurant where young and old are cooked for and good Italian food is served proficiently.
