Famously, John Logie Baird broadcast the first ever long distance television pictures to London from a bedroom in Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel.
That was in 1927 and, of course, the pictures were in black and white.
Tune in to today’s Big Deal with the Grand Central Hotel and treat your taste buds to a more colourful experience with a rosé Champagne afternoon tea in the hotel’s beautiful Champagne Central bar.
Recently renovated to the tune of some £20 million, the Grand Central Hotel has long been a part of Glasgow city life.
From film stars to famous politicians, its glamorous interiors have played host to many a mover and shaker.
Today’s offer means everyone can sample the starry vibe along with a chilled glass of bubbles.
As well as a glass of rosé Champagne each, this fizzy offer is for two people to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea inclusive of a rose tea infusion or a tea blend from the tea menu.
Afternoon tea will be served in the luxurious lounge of Champagne Central and will include the Chef’s selection of sandwiches followed by freshly baked fruit and plain scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam.
To finish, guests can tuck into Chef’s selection of mixed pastries including chocolate and coffee slice; mini lemon cheesecake, crisp butter royal biscuit and flavoured macaroons.
At last year’s Scottish Hotel Awards, Champagne Central in the historic Grand Central Hotel scooped the Hotel Bar of the Year award.
It’s not hard to see why.
One of the most talked about bars in Glasgow, the beautifully restored Champagne Central blends sophisticated surrounds with elegant service.
This offer would be ideal for a catch-up with a friend; an indulgent shopping trip break or a special treat for a family member.
