About Bo & Birdy at The Blythswood
Elegant brasserie in the city centre
Located within the swish Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel, Bo & Birdy is the first Scottish 5-star hotel restaurant to be overseen by a female executive chef. This modern brasserie has been filtered through a traditional Scottish lens, with a menu showcasing the best of our natural larder. Inside, the decor is all soft, minimalist elegance with a flourish of Art Deco charm.
