We're loving all the Perfect Day Glasgow photos and today we've got the fabulous Yelp Elite, Debs M, telling us about her perfect day in Glasgow:
Any perfect day does of course have to start with eating something delicious, and Hyde is an excellent place to do just that - excellent brekkie/brunch options in lovely chilled surroundings, so I’d need to begin there. Then I’d head up Byres Rd, stopping in Tinderbox for a coffee and to watch the world go by, before heading to some of the fantastic vintage shops the West End has to offer - such as Vintage Guru, The Glasgow Vintage Co., Retro and Starry Starry Night. Maybe even a wee look in Relics as that place is always filled with interesting items (and sometimes a sleepy cat or two, bonus!)
Shopping is hungry work, so I’d nip into Nic’s NYC Deli for a grilled sandwich or a delicious hot dog and of course one of their epic doughnuts, followed by a wee stroll around the Botanic Gardens - somewhere which always looks lovely even when the weather isn’t!
Then, you guessed it, more shopping! I adore the shops on Cresswell Lane and they’re always good for a browse even if I never actually end up buying anything - Elements and The Nancy Smillie Shop are two of my favourites, particularly if I need to get a gift for someone but also to get a wee treat for myself! No visit to the West End is complete without having a look in Fopp, it’s also pretty much impossible for me to leave there without picking something up, so I’d definitely need to fit that in before heading through to the City Centre.
Glasgow is full of amazing places to eat, some of which are very fancy and also pretty pricy as a result, but you definitely don’t have to break the bank in order to get a good feed in our fair city! Burger Meats Bun, Bread Meats Bread and Bloc+ all have amazing things to eat and all at very reasonable prices indeed, so I’d visit one of them for dinner. If I wasn’t in a total food coma after that, I’d go for a few drinks in somewhere like Waxy’s, The Howlin’ Wolf, or Slouch for my beloved Sweet Emotion cocktail or one of their other delicious concoctions!
Of course, Glasgow is known for having a fantastic local music scene and as well as the aforementioned Bloc+ and Slouch, The 13th Note usually has some great gigs on - you can usually see a few bands for something like a fiver, which is incredibly good value as far as I’m concerned. I’d try and catch one of them, and - who knows? - maybe even discover my new favourite band!
