Love is in the air! Our Top 10 Places to Visit on Valentine’s in Glasgow

We’re feeling pretty romantic here at Swipii. Valentine’s Day is now just around the corner, and a couple of the team are panicking over making last minute plans with their other halves. So to help them out, and share some of our favourite spots, we decided to put together a last minute Valentine’s guide to Glasgow. Full of the top spots to take your date, or take yourself out on the town. Some of our chosen ten even come with the benefit of being Swipii app locations, so you can earn a few points with your meal. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

 

The Citizen

Based as central as you could possibly get in Glasgow, The Citizen is a classy establishment in St. Vincent Place which will serve up everything from steak to afternoon tea. The building used to be the offices of the first evening newspaper in Glasgow, and we think they’ve managed to keep that feeling alive and well in the decor.

Nanakusa

For something a bit different, Nankusa can be found on Sauchiehall Street. The Japanese grill restaurant serves up all manner of delicacies from sashimi to dishes cooked on the Yaki BBQ grill. For those who want to think out of the box this Valentine’s day, you should give it a try.

 

Non Viet

Located both in the City Centre and in the West End, this gorgeous Vietnamese restaurant is the perfect place to get that #instaworthy picture with your other half. Filled with authentic touches, it will be the perfect place to spur on a romantic evening.

 

Stack and Still

Maple syrup cocktails and Glasgow’s first self-dispense beer bar, Stack and Still is a bit of a hit. Avoid the classic dinner and drinks cliché and opt for a pancake stack and a pint, make a Valentine’s Day to remember.

Tuk Tuk

Based on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow (although they also have an Edinburgh location), Tuk Tuk is a wonderful homage to the street food of India. It’s the perfect chance to get your hands dirty and share some finger food with your partner. Staying in and avoid couples? They’re also on JustEat and Deliveroo.

Di Maggio’s (Swipii Location!)

A classic location for date night. Di Maggio’s is hugely popular and best of all, it’s on the Swipii app as well. With the City Centre locations live on the app and the other locations still to come, we think it will make the perfect night out for Valentine’s day. We recommend Di Maggio’s Bad Ass Wings. A messy way to enjoy your date.
