Private Dining Rooms Hire Guide

With so much on offer in a wide range of districts, here’s a handy guide on where to go and what you can find:

  • City Centre – From George Square, to Glasgow Queen Street and Central stations, there are a number of incredibly versatile private dinner venues. Offering whole venue hire, large halls and small rooms, they cater to all group sizes and occasions. Ideal for large offices or corporations, but also useful for small gatherings and celebrations, you can expect a multitude of different cuisines. From British classics and sharing menus, to fine dining and Italian pizzas, there’s all kinds of treats on offer to satisfy your guests. 
  • Merchant City Lying just off the High Street, the area offers plenty of private bars, lounges and function rooms with an upmarket vibe. Able to host large and small crowds, this area is great for those looking to make an impression. Not only that, many of these venues stay open beyond dinner hours, meaning you can continue your party late into the night while enjoying great drinks and cocktails. 
  • South Side – An upscale district not far from the centre, South Side offers a diverse range of private dining options, including a famous chophouse. Known for its lush parks and thriving art scene, this district can turn a private dinner into a rich cultural experience. 
  • Hillhead – Located in Glasgow’s western suburbs, Hillhead is great for those looking for something more relaxed and intimate. Focussed more towards small cafe environments and cosy diners, Hillhead’s venues are ideal for private or low-key celebrations. Yet this does not completely rule out the option of a large gathering, with whole venue hire also possible. Positioned adjacent to Byres Road and Glasgow University, it’s also within a stone’s throw of the subway station, making it easy to reach and full of charm.
