“The park bar has live music from 8 pm every night. At weekends it's usually bouncing with people from the highlands and you're guaranteed a wee dance! If you're feeling ambitious, there are 3 bars in close vicinity to each other: the Islay, the Snaffle and the Park bar. They are known locally as "The Tuechter Triangle". Tuechter meaning someone from the highlands - pronounced "chooch-ter". All are great bars and you're guaranteed great craic!”

Meal Takeaway
“Dubbed Glasgow's favourite curryhouse, there's no surprise that this place is down right delicious. A restaurant that has been passed down in the family for decades, you really couldn't ask for people who are more passionate about their craft. This is no ordinary curryhouse though as it serves up its curries with a Scottish twist. Look out for treats such as haggis pakora.”
