Roll up, roll up – you will never believe your eyes…
Because beneath our stripy big top, you will find (among the elephants, tigers and flying trapeze artists) a Big Deal for a very special evening out.
This will include a chance to enjoy The Greatest Show, an evening of songs from musical films, plus a two course dinner and glass of wine on arrival.
All brought to you by that friendly Merchant City venue, Committee Room No. 9…
Experience a Barnum bonanza
If recent movie musicals like The Greatest Show (about the life of legendary circus owner, P.T. Barnum), and the Academy Award winning La La Land both float your boat, then step right up.
For on Thursday 31st May 2018, Committee Room No. 9 will be presenting The Greatest Show, an evening of songs from those films. This will be accompanied by a two course dinner and glass of wine on arrival, because if you are going to enjoy a singalong, why not do it in style?
You will arrive at 7pm to unwind with a glass of wine or soft drink if preferred, followed by dinner at 7.30pm. The show will run from 8.30pm to 10pm.
The Greatest Show is a live event where a small lineup of successful musical artists will perform the hits from The Greatest Showman and La La Land. So you can sit back to enjoy an eclectic array of tunes that will conjure up the magic of vintage circuses and Hollywood glamour.
And rest assured, even if you haven’t seen the films yet, that certainly won’t stop you from enjoying a medley of show stopping tunes.
Enjoy a two course dinner
You two course set dinner will be lentil soup followed by either chicken in a peppercorn sauce with mashed potato and seasonal vegetables or the vegetarian option of Thai green curry. Note that the vegetarian choice needs to be pre-ordered with the venue.
As well as your glass of wine on arrival, there will also be a drinks promotion available on the night for a bottle of wine for £10 (meaning you can stay topped up during your meal and afterwards).
Depending on the size of your party, you may be sharing your table with other musical loving customers.
It goes without saying that this Big Deal is designed to be best enjoyed in a pair or a group. So why not take your other half along as a treat or gather your besties together for an evening out on the town?
Relax in a Merchant City bar
Committee Room No. 9 offers the feel of a traditional Scottish local in the trendy Merchant City.
Known for its regular live music, the bar was refurbished a couple of years ago. Inside you will find a spacious venue with polished wooden floors, big windows and various levels to explore.
Committee Room No. 9 is a short walk from both Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations. If you are driving, then there is some on-street parking nearby plus paid parking on Ingram Street.
Committee Room No. 9 has an excellent overall score of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor. Here is a flavour of some recent reviews, edited for length:
’...the food and service was faultless and our guests were looked after from start to finish. We cannot thank the staff enough for their efforts…thanks guys, you were brilliant!!!’
‘Fantastic venue and central. Staff are very friendly, helpful and the food is delicious. Atmosphere is brilliant; good family restaurant and also for sports and other occasions. Had a lovely time and would highly recommend.’
’...from the greeting at the front door to paying the bill we had an excellent experience. Despite the pub being busy, service was timely and friendly at both the bar and in food service. Staff were helpful, despite being very busy, and the food was a great standard despite every single table in the place being full… thanks, I will definitely be back!’
Bread and circuses
Today’s Big Deal for a ticket to The Greatest Show plus a two course meal and glass of wine would make a great night out in the Merchant City.
So why not gather a group of your favourite pals together for an evening of show-stopping tunes?
