Oh alright, our jokes may provoke groans but our deals inspire smiles.
Today’s Big Deal on food and drinks from Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central will have you grinning from ear to ear.
Enjoy a night out
This is a very straightforward offer. The Big Deal costs £25 and gives you £50 to spend on bar bites and drink from the Drinks & Snacks Menu, which can be viewed here, at this welcoming hotel on West Campbell Street.
If there’s more of you, or you really want to make the most of it, there’s an option costing £50 for a £100 spend.
Of course, if it is too soon to give Crimbo any serious thought, you could use it for after work drinks with colleagues or a pre-night out starter.
Another idea would be to spend it on beer and snacks while watching the football with your mates.
The hotel’s funky lobby bar has BT Sports and enough screens for three different games to be shown at the same time.
Alternatively, you could use this Big Deal to grab a couple of drinks before going to catch a show at The Hydro, The King’s, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall or The Pavilion.
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.
A prime spot on Bath Street means the hotel is ideal for anyone looking to visit a few more bars and pubs before heading home.
Cocktails and nibbles
The lobby bar and dining area at Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central is a relaxed spot serving a great range of hot bar snacks and drinks including a fab selection of classic cocktails.
We’re always partial to a French Martini or a Bramble but we never say no to an Espresso Martini if we want to get our night started with a bang.
There are plenty of snacks for grazing on. The duck spring rolls, southern fried chicken strips and veggie pakora would all go well with a couple of drinks.
More substantial offers include the 10” stone-baked pizza; a selection of panini and there is even a range of Haagen-Dazs mini ice cream tubs to get stuck into.
As well as the cocktails, there is 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.
If you have something to celebrate, there are bottles of Prosecco and Champagne ready pop.
It’s a friendly place to hang out. A recurring theme in TripAdvisor reviews is the warmth of the welcome from the staff:
‘Met friends for cocktails and nibbles. What a lovely hotel, staff were fantastic especially Zoe who was an absolute star. Nothing was any bother to the staff. They were very attentive and friendly. Would recommend and return again very soon. First class…’
‘Great cocktail afternoon… must say a great hotel. Big thank you to Zoe! Thank you for great service with a smile! Can’t wait to visit again and of course a big thank you to all the back staff and cocktail shakers!!’
This is a simple and versatile deal. £25 buys you £50 of bar bites and drink at Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central. £50 buys you £100.
The offer can be used from noon to midnight, seven days a week, which makes it incredibly flexible.
Whether you choose to use it for a lunch-time catch-up, after work drinks, a pre-gig meal or an indulgent afternoon of cocktails is entirely up to you.
