**POSTPONED TILL A LATER DATE**




Hi All


Inspired by others who have hosted do's in Gibraltar , Leeds, London, Phoenix and other far flung locations I have decided with the help of JCM9000 and a few others to set up a do here in my hometown of Glasgow.


Venue

Venue has been confirmed!!

Bar Square in Glasgow Merchant Square
5 Bell St, Glasgow G1 1NU



Venue is a large courtyard style bar with good beer, gin & spirits selection and for those looking for bubbles they also have Moet & Bollinger BUT more importantly all at Glasgow prices :-)

Merchant Square is an excellent central location and an excellent starting point with lots of other food and drink options nearby, the bar itself also has a decent food selection

Venue has been booked and look forward to seeing you all there :-)



Transport

For those flying up there is plenty of flights from LHR, LGW and if you fly the night before LCY also.
Edinburgh airport is also an hour by a very frequent bus service from door to Glasgow City Centre if it helps with availability.
  • There is no train from Glasgow Airport to the city centre however there is a bus every 10 minutes which takes 15 minutes into the city centre at a cost of 14 open return,
  • For those not flying Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street are the closest train stations and are quite well served.
  • Airport Taxi is 25 from an airport Taxi Rank
  • Private Hire is 13 from the pickup point at the airport
  • Uber is available
  • Anyone wanting to try something different the Caledonia Sleeper train runs into Glasgow from London Euston Friday into Saturday and home Sunday into Monday.

Hotels:

There are various Hilton Hotels (Hilton Glasgow, Hilton Grosvenor, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Hampton Inn, Hilton DoubleTree). Marriott, Moxy, Radisson Blu, Raddison Red, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn etc to cater for all tastes and loyalty programs.
