'Great place.'

Had a wonderful night at this restaurant. The food was great, good choice and very tasty. The service was excellent. The waitress was very attentive and nothing was too much bother. A nice friendly atmosphere and great value for money. Would recommend.
'Fantastic Setting'

As always we got a balcony seat overlooking the square - makes you feel like you are abroad! Waiting service was brilliant as was food! And bill was very reasonable with deal we had!

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. 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.
