“Nice area to wander if exploring Glasgow”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

If you're just pottering around getting your bearings of the city, the Merchant's Quarter is a good place to start. It's easy to miss if you stop wandering at the natural barrier of Buchannan Street. Keep going though and you will find some interesting boutique shops, good value cafes and some beautiful Georgian architecture.

“Great bars and restaurants”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Excellent for a good night out. Many different pubs with entertainment and live bands. Many restaurants but would book beforehand as it can be very busy. Not far from Queen Street station so location perfect.
