Explore Glasgow Finnieston restaurants

Over the last few years, Finnieston has blossomed from post-industrial backwater to a hip and happening district with a distinct arty edge. The recent opening of The Hydro has only boosted the area's allure.

Many would say that Finnieston's bars and restaurants help set the trends that the rest of the city follows. It's certainly a fertile breeding ground for cool pop-ups, gin-slinging mixologists and innovative young chefs determined to forge their own style.

Often quirky, sometimes unconventional, the most recent wave of bistros, bars and off-beat speakeasys makes Finnieston a strong contender for the title of Glasgow's most vibrant neighbourhood.

    Excellent food

    Enjoyed the excellent food on the offer and not disappointed in the portion or presentation. Service was good and friendly staff. We've dined here a number of times and would always return as it's one of the best in the area. My only criticism is the overpowering smell of the candle/incense that was lit while we were eating.

    Been before so know what to expect

    The peanut brittle in the dessert could have been smaller or crushed as the pieces were chunky. Just a suggestion but the dessert was delicious.

    A place with real character

    OK we ordered extra courses, dishes and coffee so it wasn't such a good deal but the whole experience was exceptional. The food was very tasty, the service friendly but professional and the place itself has real character.

Regeneration of Glasgow’s Finnieston

Just a few years ago, Glasgow’s Finnieston was a very different place. Aside from the odd bar and restaurant dotting the Argyle Street stretch, the area was mostly deserted.

Today it is transformed. Finnieston has become one of the most lively, popular neighbourhoods for a night out, with a plethora of bars and restaurants arriving in recent years thanks in part to the opening of the Hydro.

There’s been talk of “the new Byres Road” but Finnieston retains its below the radar credentials, maybe due to its lack of public transport access – there’s no steady stream of revellers stepping off the subway…
