In one interview, Kate Moss reckoned that all you need for a good night out are three things: smoky eyeliner; a new haircut and a few gin and tonics.
We’re not going to argue but we do have a much simpler suggestion: just buy today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at the Lorne Hotel.
We can’t guarantee dancing with super models but you will have a night to remember in one of Glasgow’s most striking hotels.
The deal is for 2 people to enjoy an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast stay in a double or twin classic room at the Lorne. As part of the deal, a nice, chilled bottle of Prosecco will get the party started.
The sleek rooms are all fitted with plasma screens; soft Egyptian linen; power showers or baths, broadband and hot drinks facilities.
As well as a cooked breakfast in the morning, a three course dinner for each guest in the hotel’s colourful Bukharah restaurant is included in the deal.
Winners at the Scottish Curry Awards in 2010, the chefs in the Bukharah’s kitchen are past masters at whipping up tasty and healthy Indian food.
Think gingery bhoonas; tender lamb in spicy masalas and marinated chicken in pickled sauces.
Of course, if Indian food doesn’t tickle your taste buds, there are some European dishes on offer as well.
If you feel like a top notch cocktail before or after your meal then we recommend a detour into the Bilberry bar – the staff there are handy with a Boston shaker.
Handily located in the swinging West End, the Lorne Hotel is perfect for catching a concert at the SECC; taking in the exhibitions at Kelvingrove or simply enjoying the nightlife and shopping of the city centre.
The Bukharah restaurant is a hit with 5pm users. At the time of writing, just under 90 of you have given it a combined score of 4.3/5.
The Lorne Hotel also gets the thumbs up from guests such as this recent TripAdvisor reviewer:
‘Wonderful hotel, value for money. I stayed here with my wife, had a fantastic stay. Service was great, room was clean and staff very accommodating. Food at the restaurant Bukharah was the best we have had. Definitely the best Indian in Glasgow.’
