24 Hours In Glasgow
So much grass, so little time.
08 . 06 . 15
Glasgow has all the historic charm of a quaint European city with a blend of lush earthiness. Handsome Victorian building lined streets are somewhat misleading in this youth driven city of cool bars, stylish restaurants and hedonistic clubs. The city’s renaissance is perhaps best on display at The River Clyde. Last month during my travels to the men’s shows in Europe I spent 24 hours in Glasgow and got a feel for this raw culture. Here is my photo dairy from the day and some of my picks of what to do when stopping by this endearing city.
OCV Travel Guide: 24 hours in Glasgow
Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery
Opium – Low-lit spot with old-school chef infusing flavors from China, Malaysia and Thailand.
13th Note – Sinfully delicious vegan cheesecake. Enough said.
Cafe Mimi’s – Great breakfast spot.
Pollok Country Park
Botanic Gardens and Kibble Palace – Get lost for hours in these vast gardens and be sure to head to the greenhouses before 5PM if you want to do more the press your nose up against the glass.
The Mackintosh House
House for an Art Lover – The House for an Art Lover is a building constructed in 1989-96, based on a design of 1901 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh with his wife, Margaret MacDonald. In two words, house envy.
citizenM Hotel – This boutique hotel offers mobile citizens comfortable and affordable luxury. The rooms are small but the view and spacious shared rooms make up for it.
