About Metropolitan Cocktail Bar & Restaurant
First time visitor to this place I was amazed how many nook and crannies this place has there is loads going on from large parties, grey goose bar upstairs with a nice piano, white leather booths overlooking merchant city, private function rooms and downstairs bar area inside & out yet nobody looked under pressure.. Brilliant - the food was amazing we had a quiet table for 2 inbetween the parties but it was nice not too noisy. The deal we had included a nice bottle of rose and I loved the water bottles. Will be back sometime.
Great meal at the Metropolitan, Good service and good value.First time eating here with 5 pm and will definitely go back.
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.
