Refurbished recently, The Art School on Scott Street has long been a brilliant place to catch a band; have a drink or dance your socks off.
Fondly known as The Vic, it’s part of Glasgow School of Art Students’ Association and sits opposite the much loved Mackintosh building, just behind Sauchiehall Street.
With a menu that cheery picks the tastiest dishes from around the globe, it’s also a great spot for a bite to eat.
You can test drive the menu with today’s Big Deal on a meal and drink at The Vic.
Sample a wide range of street food from around the globe with this offer – available noon to 9pm, Monday to Friday, and from 5pm to 9pm on Saturdays.

You can round off your meal with profiteroles; a chocolate brownie sundae or affogato – that classic Italian combination of Amaretto, espresso and ice cream.
Vegetarians are well catered for with everything from tandoori halloumi burgers to a Puy lentil pie topped with a celeriac and butterbean mash and served with spring greens.
The Art School is well known as a dynamic hub for Glasgow’s arts, clubbing and music scenes. Plenty of people also rave about its food. This recent review is from TripAdvisor:
‘Always a good choice. Good variety of food at The Art School. Last time I went I devoured a butternut squash pizza and was thoroughly impressed with my choice. I usually go here because there is an amazing variety of music that gets played, the staff are brilliant, the food is good and the drinks well priced. You have to visit this gem.’
Within easy walking distance of the ABC, King’s Theatre and Theatre Royal, this Big Deal would be perfect for a pre-show bite as well as a fun lunch.
