From Anthony and Cleopatra to Ant ‘n’ Dec, many of life’s most intriguing characters come in pairs.
Raise your glass to that most delicious of duos – cheese and wine – with today’s Big Deal from Urban Bar and Brasserie in Glasgow city centre.
A rather suave restaurant and bar on St Vincent Place, Urban Bar and Brasserie was once home to the Bank of England’s Scottish HQ.
Decked out with wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, it is rather an elegant city centre spot which has retained its dashing good looks.
Christmas gift idea
Today’s Big Deal on wine flights and a cheeseboard is valid throughout November, January and February.
This makes it a fun stocking filler for those looking for gift ideas.
It would also be the ideal way to ward off potential post-festive blues. A lunchtime cheese and wine treat or after work snifter and nibbles is always a mood booster.
Served in Urban’s cocktail bar and available from noon to 9pm, Sunday to Thursday, today’s offer is for two people to each have a flight of three different wines, each wine served in a 100ml glass.
Diners will share a cheeseboard platter – a delicious selection of market cheeses with chutney, water biscuits and oatcakes.
Over the years, Urban Bar and Brasserie has built up a loyal following of happy customers. More than 1100 5pm reviewers have given Urban a combined rating of 4.4/5.
Writing on Urban Bar and Brasserie’s 5pm restaurant entry, this is what a recent visitor had to say:
‘Urban experience. Great food, lovely atmosphere. Staff were friendly.’ Rating 5/5
If you have never dipped into Urban’s sleek interior, this offer is a great way to sample their wines and enjoy the relaxed ambience of the cocktail bar.
As we mentioned, it would make a jolly stocking filler.
The early months of the year may be chilly but cheese and wine in Urban Bar and Brasserie is a stylish winter warmer to look forward to.
