There are three essential ingredients for a satisfying afternoon tea: tasty treats to nibble and sip; plush surrounds and scandalous gossip.
Take up today’s Big Deal with 29 on Royal Exchange Square and we’ll provide the first two but please note that this is a BYOG or bring your own gossip deal.
Occupying two floors of a stunning 19th century sandstone building, 29 Private Members’ Club offers a smart, fashionable spot to relax right in the hub of Glasgow’s cosmopolitan city centre.
This swish offer is for two people to enjoy a gourmet afternoon tea with a glass of Prosecco each in the Network Bar at 29.
There are two sittings each day from Thursday to Sunday. The first at 2pm and the second at 3.30pm. Both last 90 minutes.
The 29 afternoon tea is a luxurious affair which starts with your choice from a selection of fine teas and coffees.
Served on a rather smart three tier tray, the range of sandwiches includes Scottish smoked salmon and cucumber; roast Scotch beef with horseradish cream; free range egg mayonnaise with cress and honey roast ham with mustard.
Finish off with scones, cream and jam plus an array of fine, miniature cakes, pastries and treats.
A glass of chilled Prosecco will accompany the dainty treats and perhaps help refresh memories about any particularly juicy piece of gossip.
There is also the option to explore 29’s fine cocktail list at £4.95 a pop. We like the idea of the 29 Sidecar: gin, triple sec and lemon juice shaken over ice and dressed with a lemon twist.
Order a further bottle of prosecco for £24 or upgrade to a glass of champagne for £5 per person.
Make someone happy
