So when exactly is ‘gin o’clock’? The debate rages on with no end in sight.
Some say it’s 5pm, others swear it’s noon and for the hedonists among us, any time will do.
Whatever time your official gin o’clock is, you can celebrate it in a retro-chic setting with today’s Big Deal for a G&T plus nibbles at Finsbay in Milngavie.
Perfect serve G&Ts for two
The only thing better than a G&T is one perfectly paired with just the right tonic and garnish. Thankfully, the Finsbay bar wizards know their stuff on that score.
The Big Deal is for two people to have a choice of one of their perfect serve G&Ts each plus nibbles at this smart café bar and restaurant.
You can choose from Glaswegin, Harris or Eden Mill Love Gin, each of which will be paired with a Fever-Tree tonic and garnish (grapefruit for Harris, orange with Glaswegin and berries with Eden Mill Love Gin – so now you know).
Nibbles will be marinated olives with sourdough & balsamic vinegar, and red pepper hummus with red chutney and sourdough toast.
Gin whenever you like it
This offer is available seven days a week.
In other words, it is ideal for after-work drinks, mixers before dinner or a cheeky G&T on a weekend afternoon.
Based on Main Street in Milngavie, Finsbay is known for its quirky 70s-style decor. So expect patterned wallpaper, rotary dial telephones and artwork that might have graced your granny’s walls when you were little.
But also expect stylish modern touches such as blonde woods and atmospheric lighting, all working together to create a relaxing vibe.
In other words, it’s exactly how we imagine Agnetha from Abba’s apartment might have looked back in the 70s.
Finsbay has been picking up positive feedback from 5pm diners, including the following reviews (edited for shortness):
‘Finsbay – definitely worth a visit! Very comfortable, helpful staff, simple menu/food but very well prepared and presented. We went on a Thursday night, and there was live folk music from 9pm (open mic so you can join in!) – enjoyed it all. Will definitely go back and would encourage you to try it – see you there!’ 5/5
‘Quirky decor, great food!!! We had a great meal with no pressure to get us out the door even though we had a deal… Will certainly be back!!!’
‘Good food, service and atmosphere – 5pm menu was great value and had a good choice. Service and atmosphere both great so would definitely go back.’ 4.25/5
It’s always gin o’clock
Whether you prefer slinging back gin in the afternoon or the evening, this Big Deal gives you the chance to enjoy a perfect serve any day of the week.
So why not grab your bestie or other half then head out for a couple of cheeky G&Ts in a stylish 70s-style café bar?
