If you haven’t had a weekend break in Glasgow of late, then make like Mister Micebook and book yourself a winter escape in this stylish Scottish city.
Not only is Glasgow a vibrant city, renowned for its innovation and creativity, but it’s also a great destination for eco-conscious planners – the city took a top five spot in the 2019 Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS Index), which ranks the most sustainable business tourism and events destinations.
And a host of new hotel openings is further increasing its appeal to event planners. Check into the recently opened Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel which features 113 gorgeously appointed rooms and welcoming public spaces with original wood panelling and marble fireplaces.
Mister Micebook won’t be leaving without a meal or two in the delightful Bo & Birdy restaurant, which serves the very best of locally sourced Scottish produce, while its eponymous cocktail comes complete with a peacock feather garnish. Event planners will love the flexible function spaces, which include a fashionable custom-built 52-seater table and the screening room, decked out in Harris Tweed fabric for 40 guests.
After an opulent start to the weekend, Mister Micebook can’t resist squeezing in a few site inspections – so first up its off to the SSE Hydro to check out the upcoming Courtyard by Marriott brand, which will offer 221 rooms.
Meanwhile the nearby 213-roomed Moxy hotel looks set to welcome in the crowds by summer 2020, with a boutique 57-room Hotel Gotham opening the following Spring. Located at Blythswood Square, it will be the second Hotel Gotham property by Bespoke Hotels, following the brand’s debut in Manchester four years ago.
