How to spend Valentine’s weekend in Glasgow

The cool and quirky

Kick off the night with a bit of healthy competition and take them to Bowlerama. Order outrageous cocktails and brilliant food until the wee hours of the morning (think crispy duck confit and fried eggs on waffles) and impress your date with your ten-pin prowess.

Glasgow, with its glorious architecture and warm welcome, is effortlessly romantic. It’s a city for strolling around and exploring. For drinking and dancing until the sun comes up. For indulging in some of the country’s best food and drink in a flourishing restaurant scene.

That’s what makes it so easy for Team Native recommend six unforgettable Valentine’s Day ideas in Glasgow. And, with the big day falling conveniently on a Friday, it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate all weekend long.

Or tee up an evening of romance (and smutty jokes) by taking your date to Fore Play. A round or two of mini-golf with a side of beer, wine, cocktails and street food, plus ample opportunities to show off your skills on the green.

If you and your date aren’t afraid to disco through the streets of Glasgow to the beat of your own headphones, a Silent Adventure offers an unforgettable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Grab an inflatable guitar, join your host and take a dancing tour of the city together.


The refined and romantic

Start with a stroll. Glasgow is a beautiful place to walk and talk, and its rambling Botanical Gardens offer the perfect backdrop to a walk hand-in-hand. Pause at The Tearooms for lunch – al fresco, if you’re really lucky.

Or snuggle up in a speakeasy and whisper sweet nothings at Wheesht – Scottish for “shhh”. There’s no cocktail menu here – the bartender will find out what you like and then shake up something just for you.

If your date is really special, book a table at The Gannet to experience the very best of Scottish cuisine. Enjoy seasonal produce presented with elegance and flair, as well as wonderful wines and a selection of top-notch single malts to toast the perfect evening.
