Amenities

Eating

There are a number of excellent cafes and sandwich bars within the immediate area. We highly recommend “SidEways” on Elderslie Street which is just around the corner. Also  “An Clachan” in Kelvingrove  Park, a short walk, is a nice retreat with outside tables. There are a number of cafes on Sauchiehall Street with  great sandwiches and decent coffee. Cafe Bella Turca does takeaway veggie friendly soup for £1!

There is a fantastic wholefood deli on Argyle Street called Roots and Fruits. They do soups, salads, veggie samosas and lots of lovely stuff. http://www.rootsfruitsandflowers.com/content/wholefoods-shop

Charing Cross is also home to a host of Indian restaurants, noodle bars and a fabulous Japanese restaurant Nanakusa. 

Slightly further afield, there are three vegan/vegetarian eateries in Glasgow – all in the city centre – about a 20/25 minute walk from the studio

Accommodation

If you are staying over in Glagsow – here are some ideas for places nearby

There is a Premier Inn at Charing Cross – less than five minutes from the studio.

The Newton Hotel is an inexpensive B&B just up the road on Bath Street.

Adelaide’s – a budget B&B is a little further up the road on Bath Street

You can try booking.com and laterooms.com for late availability deals. There are quite a few B&Bs around the area, especially on Renfrew Street which is nearby. For cheaper, homestay B&B, then I recommend AirB&B. There is also a backpackers  hostel across the road from us on Berkeley Street if you want to rough it.

Shops

If you are looking for a gift or card then the beautiful Velvet Moon on St. George’s Rd. is definitely the place to go for unique and special gifts and the fabulous company of Owner Brenda.

Around the corner on Sauchiehall Street we have a post office with ATM, a  newsagent, printers and  several cafes.  A slightly further walk and you reach a Boots Chemist with pharmacy. And if you need a supermarket there are three Tesco Metros within walking distance.

If you need internet access the Mitchell Library  is very close which  has a large cafe and  free computer and wifi access for library members.
