Hillhead Bookclub is nothing what it sounds like! A fun place to start your night with good tunes and video games, but not a book in sight! It’s located in a great location just off Byres Road in the West End. Upon entering the Bookclub if you look up you will see the remains of its former identity, an old movie theatre.
One of the quirky highlights of this bar is that they have a tremendous cocktail selection which can be served in old gramophones, great for sharing! Hillhead Bookclub also has a nice selection of vintage games consoles and a ping pong table. With the odd little doodles and mismatched charity shop furniture the whole setting is very eclectic yet maintains that cosy feel.
I regularly come here for the weekend events – most Sundays there is usually a market of some kind where you can find the local crafts and vintage clothes. Once you’re had your fill of browsing homemade clothes and accessories you can treat yourself to a home cooked dinner like steak pie or fish and chips – yum, a 1/4 of the menu is veggie friendly so nobody gets left out too. This is a great place for big breakfasts/brunches, particularly if you like to combine your lunches with booze as the bloody mary’s are top notch!
