“Same Same”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Alot of the same retail stores as you will find around the corner but some great little bars and restaurant about. Looking forward to getting into a few more. I'd imagine summer would be fantastic. there seems to be a concerted effort to keep this areas cleaner than other parts of the city.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

This area has gone in recent years from run down neglected to a vibrant place to live and play. Every type of restaurant and bar is represented, and in what was the indoor market you can do a pub crawl without going outside.

For a night out in Glasgow this is the place. Great atmosphere.

“Take plenty of money”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

It is nice to look but better to spend at the shops in this area. The Sloane Market is a disappointment, just like any market with the usual cheap items, nothing of interest or difference.
