In its previous incarnation as the RSAC ballroom, the elegant Restaurant at Blythswood Square had a dance floor where Glasgow’s movers and shakers would cut a rug.
These days, there are still plenty of movers and shakers around the tables. However, it could be argued that the most stylish moves are now being made by the chefs in the kitchen.
Five star qualities
The Restaurant is part of the impressive and luxurious Blythswood Square hotel, and the playful, eye-catching red, white and black decor reflects the bold and confident approach to interior design.
It’s a great place to dine, with the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere complementing imaginative and appetising culinary creations.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to have a two course meal for two from the market menu at the Restaurant at Blythswood Square.
