Cocktail making and a two course meal for a hen doo. Food was delicious, service was excellent. Cocktail making was great fun and our barman was totally professional but great fun. A super, fun night out.

Attended a hen do on Friday night which included a meal and cocktail masterclass. I had a 2 course meal, I didn't really enjoy the food, I opted for the pate to start which was a bit too strong for me, and for mains cajun chicken salad. I don't think the food was of a poor quality, just not really... More

Friendly and helpful staff! Fab cocktail menu. Lovely seeing them made. Tables are cleared quickly. At one point there were no tables available so we were at the bar. As soon as a table was free (without asking) we were asked by staff if we would like to sit down and she took us to a table! Will be back... More

My daughters Maid of Honour booked the 2 Course Meal/Cocktail Master Class for my daughters Hen Night. We were a group of around 18 ladies. On first impressions (first visit for myself), I thought the venue was stunning, beautiful decor throughout. Service was a bit slow to start with although a free glass of Prosecco and a free complimentary French... More

Having a relaxing day in Glasgow we popped into the October Bar. The terrace was full so we took a seat inside. What a good move. We were served by Elle who as well as making us feel very welcome can do wonders with gin. Ask for a gin mojito my wife said you will not be disappointed.

Very disappointed. Huge selection of place to eat in Princes Square and they offered no completion. Wine arrived with wet wine glasses - it was early afternoon!!! Basic toasted club sandwich, one returned as steak needed steel jaws to eat. Service ok but not impressive. Better places to eat within a two minute walk. Come on guys what you offer... More
