Sauchiehall-street 995

Sauchiehall Street is one of Glasgow's most famous streets. It's a street that packs a punch, as here you can meet, eat, play, shop, dance and more! 

For shopping, there is an impressive array of popular brands. There is the legendary Watt Brothers, a Glasgow institution which recently celebrated its 100th birthday. The traditional department store sells everything from discounted clothing to cosmetics to homeware. And it is here that you will find a second Glasgow institution - The Willow Tearooms at Watt Brothers. The intricately recreated rooms inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Miss Cranston's original tearoom ffrom the 1900s, provide a beautiful setting for high tea.

Meanwhile, major brands have large stores in the heart of Sauchiehall Street, including M&S and TK Maxx. Shoppers looking for affordable fashion are catered for here also, with Primark and Deichman Shoes.

Dining options include authentic Japanese food at Nanakusa, aromatic Indian cuisine at Kama Sutra and Italian favourites at Cafe Antipasti, as well as numerous fast food and late dining / takeaway options. Meanwhile, there is a thriving pubs scene, many of which also serve food.

You will find culture at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), which offers a year-round programme of cutting-edge exhibitions, film, music, literature, spoken word, festivals and performance.  

For entertainment, there's the chance to watch local and international bands at Nice n Sleazys and Broadcasts, dance into the small hours at The Garage (Scotland's biggest nightclub) or try your luck at the Gala or Genting Casinos.

Public realm work is currently underway, with the aim of bringing more vibrancy to the street through extended space for pedestrians and cyclists, reduced vehicle access, as well as greenery and cultural spots.
