Right next to the M8 and found between Charing Cross and Anderston train station is the exquisite Hilton Glasgow International, which features the perfect spot to unwind whilst exploring Glasgow.
The bar area of the hotel, known as the Connich Bar, is open to both hotel guests and passing visitors alike and offers up some splendid bar snacks and main meals. Somewhat unorthodox for a bar area, one of the Connich Bar’s specialities is a tapas style menu. Although this is unusual for a bar is makes for a fantastic option for an informal meal, or as an excellent additional to a catch up over a few drinks.
The tapas style menu, dubbed ‘Wee Nibbles’, include such delights as smoked new potatoes, with roasted garlic aioli, wild mushrooms, complete with feta cheese and crusty bread, and an antipasti board, complete parma ham, chorizo and hummus bocconcini.
Ideal for the gourmet on the go are the sumptuous sandwiches, available as simple snacks like honey roast ham and roast beef filled sandwiches as well as luxurious counter parts. Examples of these rich sandwiches include the succulent chargrilled scotch fillet steak, filled with caramelised onions and paired with fries and a pepper sauce, and the veggie friendly marinated tomato and mozzarella, adorned with spinach and pesto.
Those seeking something more substantial will adore one of the bigger bites, including hearty burgers like the Butchers Handmade Burger, served with twice cooked chips and available with mull cheddar and cured bacon, delicious pizzas like the Hickory Barbeque Chicken Pizza, topped with sweetcorn and green peppers, and main courses like the scrumptious braised beef bourguignon, accompanied by baby onions, mashed potatoes and a red wine sauce.
A stone’s throw away from such attractions as the King’s Theatre, the O2 ABC Glasgow and the Mitchel Library, the Hilton Glasgow International’s Connich Bar is a great hub for city explorers, should they fancy a fantastic bite to eat.
