Glasgows cocktail and food hidden gem

Never normally straying from the hipster central area of Finnieston, Jess and I thought it was about time we headed back into the Merchant City for dinner and drinks at The Spiritualist.


Located in the heart of the Merchant City this restaurant and bar prides its self on unique drinking and eating experience, having been open since April 2016 and with so may raving reviews we thought best to see what all the fuss was about.

As soon as we entered The Spiritualist we instantly thought - how the hell did we not know this existed until now (we've been trapped in the  Finnieston bubble for too long). Pictures speak a thousand words and you can just see from the photos that this is a place to take the parents when looking to impress them on their trip to Glasgow.


Things don't just look good here, the drinks list is incredible and with a whisky selection to rival the Ben Nevis it may be my new favourite whisky spot in Glasgow.


The Spiritualist pride themselves on there unique drinks and the Cocktails are one way of seeing exactly what they mean, with some bar staff helping us choose we opted for a Voodoo Eyes and a Super Natural Cobbler (the latter being quite literally the most insane thing I have ever tasted).


There is also a nice little outdoor indoor area which leaves you feeling like your drinking in some mainland European bistro, check out the drink list here for a taste of whats on offer.


Its not just great drinks that's on offer here, the restaurant is spacious and has a unique menu to completest the drinks on offer. With a separate lunch menu, pre-theatre and a' la carte there is plenty choice for everyone.

Lunch & Pre-Theatre  (12-6.45PM) - 2 courses for £13.95 or 3 courses £15.95 (if you can manage it) or you can eat of the a' la carte menu like Jess and I did.


The food here is incredible and has a great mix of quality with quantity, my beef brisket just melted in your mouth and with such an awesome portion I was left feeling ready to burst.


With a started and main course down I can rarely find the space for a pudding but with some easy persuading we ended up getting an espresso parfait to share (should have got one each, it was amazing!).


If its a quick lunch or fancy dinner your after I highly recommend The Spiritualist or if eating's cheating your thing then the bar here is serves up some of the best drinks Glasgow has to offer, either way go now before the rest of Finniston catches on!
