What do you call a drummer with half a brain?
Always handy to have a few jokes to hand if you are heading out to a gig.
Almost as handy as today’s Big Deal on drinks from Hampton by Hilton on West Campbell Street.
The lobby bar and dining area at Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central is a relaxed spot serving a great range of drinks including a fab selection of classic cocktails.
This offer would be a great way of meeting a friend for drinks before going to see a show at The Hydro. Or indeed The King’s and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
The Big Deal is for two cocktails or drinks each for two people.
The bar staff can mix up a great range of classics including:
French Martini – vodka, Chambord, pineapple juice
Bramble – gin, Chambord, sugar syrup, lemon juice
Woo Woo – vodka, peach liqueur, cranberry juice
White Russian – vodka, Baileys, Kahlua, milk
Amaretto Sour – Disaronno, sugar syrup, juice of a lemon
If cocktails don’t appeal, you could have beers, glasses of wine or measures of spirits instead. The only drinks excluded on this option are Prosecco and Champagne.
The bar stocks a good wine list; a decent selection of draught beers and a range of bottled beers which includes Bitter and Twisted and Schiehallion from the marvellous Harviestoun Brewery.
The spirits on offer go from the ever popular Bell’s whisky and Beefeater gin to Laphroaig ten-year-old and Hendricks.
Option one is available Sunday to Thursday, and option two is available seven days a week, allowing flexibility for use.
The hotel’s central location makes it easy to get to a gig or get home – both Queen Street and Central stations are a short walk.
The bar is a friendly place to hang out. A recurring theme in TripAdvisor reviews is the warmth of the welcome from the staff. These are excerpts from longer, recent reviews:
‘Bought a deal for cocktails. Were highly impressed with all aspects of our visit – from the efficient warm welcome to the quality of our drinks and service. Would definitely return.’
‘The cocktails were lovely and the staff were really helpful and we had a lovely time.’
‘Visited before the cinema with a voucher for cocktails. Fantastic value and fantastic service from all of the staff who were all very friendly and very attentive… We were already planning another visit before we left. Comfortable seating and a nice bright area… We will be back!’
Catch-up with friends
This is a simple and versatile deal that could be used for after work drinks, catching up with a friend or starting a night out.
And, if you have yet to visit Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central, this offer is the perfect introduction.
