5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

I love it here. I love the wine, the service, the atmosphere, location. A++++ from me. I feel so comfortable here, I went for my lunch alone and just chilled with some lovely wine. Good for alone, with friends, family. All will love.

“Super wee wine bar in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Boudoir has three personalities - weekend night place for the crowds - where it's noisy and buzzing, a sipping joint for the ladies and business-savvies during lunchtime week days and a quieter sophisticated spot Sunday night through Thursday night. My favourite time is a Friday lunchtime.

As was the case yesterday, on a warmish sunny day on Candleriggs. Wife was having her hair coloured across the street, so I took the opportunity to sit al fresco at Boudoir and enjoy people watching of some of the most colourful characters making their way across the cobblestones - with the disasters of orange tanned ladies wobbling in the street!

Great service - sitting outside, without asking, was presented with their WiFi code, and as one of the few bars in Glasgow with Moretti on tap - served perfectly, served nice and cool - not too cold, it's a must visit for me.

For lunch the anti pasti plate - a bargain at £7.95 - with several cheeses, bread, roasted tomatoes, pate, fruit, oil and balsamic. As no car involved, another pint of Moretti and a super Americano were also consumed!

This is one of my favourite wine bars - and with the three different personalities mentioned, it has literally something for everyone!

“Beautiful little wine bar - spoiled by too loud music!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Lovely setting, nice choice of wines and cocktails and very friendly and pleasant service. Spoiled a bit for me by the far too loud (thump, thump) music. People like to talk and a more relaxed background music for the mixed clientele would have added to the ambience. Would maybe not go back in the evening because of the loud music.

We appreciate your comments and will take your comments on board about the music, however we are a contemporary wine bar and advertise French House music etc... especially for the busier periods. During the week, things are obviously a little more laid back.
We look forward to welcoming you again and thanks for your review.

“About 27.27 feet from my front door...(approximately...)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Yep, it's quite local.

Good wine list. Cocktail list has a good range and they will make the classics if you ask.

Service can either be at the bar or at table. Depending how busy it is service can get a little slow.

It's packed on a weekend and when it's warm out (...it's Glasgow so that will be 1:37pm June the 5th then...).

It's a good standard wine bar, whats not to like?

“Great afternoon retreat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Beautiful little wine bar. Nice wine selection by the glass for around £3-5. Wonderful cheese plate (£6) and meat plate (£5). Apparently live acoustic guitar in evening.
