In these crisp, chilly Glasgow nights, who wouldn’t welcome a little breath of Mediterranean warmth and passion?
Anyone pining for that summer break on the Costas can recapture the flavours and ambience of Spain with today’s Big Deal, offering an authentic Spanish meal for two at Mercado in Glasgow’s Merchant City.
It’s the ideal venue for a relaxed and romantic night out, maybe while you plan next summer’s getaway to the Med.
Merchant City dining
Available in the evenings from 4pm until closing time from Sunday to Friday, the Big Deal is for two people and includes olives and bread, a Paella to share, and a glass of Sangria for each customer. The Sangria can be exchanged for a soft drink if required.
Authentic Spanish cuisine
Mercado enjoys an evocative and atmospheric setting beneath the glass roof of the original markets on Merchant Square. Tables on the cobbled terrace provide a great vantage spot for observing the Merchant City nightlife.
The Big Deal offers Mercado’s take on Spanish classics. Bread and olives make the perfect appetiser for Paella, the traditional Valencian dish that begins with saffron-scented rice in a flat pan and continues wherever the chef’s creativity takes it.
A glass of Sangria adds a fun and frivolous touch of the Mediterranean.
Mercado has found plenty of appreciative support on TripAdvisor. Recent reviews include the following comments:
‘Lovely relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, will definitely return.’
‘The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming and as Mercado is situated in the Merchant Square, it’s a great venue and it felt like we were abroad.’
‘A little gem and I would thoroughly recommend – on a dark dreich night in Glasgow took me back to sunny holidays in Spain.’
Hasta La Vista
For a surprise night out, a festive gift, romantic occasion or just a welcome reminder of that summer in the sun, this Big Deal at Mercado looks muy estupendo. Even if the Glasgow rain is clattering down on that glass roof.
