About Metropolitan Cocktail Bar & Restaurant
food and staff
Really lovely, great staff and food, with a lovely atmosphere
This was a fantastic deal & will definitely book again! Have only ever been to Metropolitan for drinks but I was not let down on my first visit for food. Although it was a set menu for the 5pm deal there was still a great variety of dishes to choose from which we both enjoyed! The restaurant itself is beautiful, tables spaced out very well so didn't feel cramped next to other customers. The staff themselves could not have been more helpful and friendly, all extremely nice when serving or just saying hello when passing by. Would recommend this place and food 100% and will definitely be returning!
Modern Scottish bar-restaurant in Merchant Square
Metropolitan is a stylish cocktail bar and restaurant venue, situated in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City. Offering a varied selection of local produce in a range of styles, Metropolitan brings a modern twist to traditional Scottish fare and fine dining. Customer favourites include stuffed supreme of chicken, creamed spinach, fondant potato and a redcurrant jus; trio of Hatton Farm pork, savoy cabbage, apple and thyme sauce, and choice of 8oz rump, sirloin and fillet steaks.
Stunning Merchant City setting, balconies & separate bars
Metropolitan has a unique layout, with its first floor setting in the south-west corner of Merchant Square, formerly the Victorian Candleriggs market. Spanning four distinct areas, it is equally capable of accommodating a celebratory party or a romantic rendezvous. Its atmosphere varies from intimate and relaxed in the twin balconies, which offer a panoramic view of the Merchant Square, to the animated setting of the ground floor tables.
There is also the option of the Laurent-Perrie champagne bar and the piano and cocktail lounge, which are the perfect settings for pre or post dinner drinks. They have also recently had the private dining area refurbished. Whatever type of outing is desired, Metropolitan Cocktail Bar & Restaurant caters for.
Easy access to Central and Queen Street stations
Set in the heart of Glasgow’s historic Merchant City district, Metropolitan is ideally located for shopping trips to the nearby Buchanan Street and as a pre-concert venue for the Old Fruitmarket or Royal Concert Hall, from which it is only a ten minute walk.
It is well served by local transport, being around 10 minutes from both Glasgow Central and Queen Street rail stations, and is easily accessible from St. Enoch subway station and many bus stops and taxi ranks.
