About Leiper's Attic
Scottish restaurant in Glasgow’s West End
Leiper’s Attic is a Scottish restaurant in the upstairs space above Cottiers bar, theatre and wedding venue. The Hyndland Street restaurant takes its name from William Leiper , who in conjunction with Daniel Cottier, created the spectacular church building that is today known as Cottier’s. It is an atmospheric space which works well for romantic dinners and family celebrations. If you really want to celebrate, they sell a range of Cuban cigars.
