This restaurant opened in 2010 but it feels like old New York inside. Described as Glasgow’s first boutique steakhouse and cocktail bar, this venue is a great place to go out to at the weekend. The Butchershop is located at the corner of Sauchiehall street, making it very convenient for anyone in the West End. It’s warm, opulent interior with low lighting and chic staff make it a great place to see in the evenings.
The food is certainly inspired by the name with the menu focusing predominately on steaks and burgers, but there are other less meaty options available for vegetarian and fish eaters. Carnivores especially will enjoy the deliciously tender 28 day aged Scottish Sirloin and thick, hand cut chips. And you can grab yourself a bargain with the pre-theatre menu, offering a choice of 2 or 3 courses for a very reasonable £ 12.95 or £ 15.95.
The Butchershop also prides itself on their rather delicious cocktails. At around £ 8(ish) a drink, it’s not cheap, but in my opinion, it’s worth it. If you want to learn how to mix your own cocktails then it’s worth considering the Cocktail Master classes that the Butchershop put on. You get to drink the drink you make, plus you get a two course meal thrown in for good measure!
If you love your steaks and cocktails a little more grown up than the usual chain restaurants that pop up all over the city, this one is definitely for you.
