Eat and drink
Grand Central restaurant offers an excellent menu featuring local and seasonal dishes. Located on Hope Street the newly opened deli offers a quick or light meal before heading off to the city or whilst waiting for the train with the great atmosphere of a continental cafe. Tempus restaurant offers an excellent range of food with flexibility, from a pizza from the superb pizza oven to great Scottish fish and steaks. Champagne Central on the entresol level lives up to its name, not only offering a superb range of champagnes but also a very innovative cocktail list along with premium beers and spirits. A stunning room with marble floors, marble pillars and the most magnificent gold leaf dome is lit by an extravaganza of light from the huge crystal chandelier. This is the most exciting place to be in Glasgow, the atmosphere is buzzing, the biggest danger is that whilst sipping your glass of champagne you may well see your train depart as the bar is a really interesting place to people watch over the train concourse.
