The Blue Dog is perfect for a relaxed night out, or the start of a very messy one!

Top Tip 3 – Learn the Restaurants

Bella Vita is a Neapolitan Restaurant offering Antipasti, Pasta, Pizza, Burgers and lots of other tasty looking treats. With outstanding Trip advisor reviews Bella Vita, located on Mosspark Boulevard, have a good reputation for their food, service, value & atmosphere and have been praised specifically for their outstanding service to large parties of diners. Number 16 is a European Restaurant located on Byres Street. Offering dishes such as seared fillet of Rainbow Trout, seared Perthshire bavette steak and warm salad of chick peas this is the perfect place to chill and grab a bite to eat before a big night out.

Top Tip 4 – Sleep with one eye open!

Although your best man & groomsmen have spent all this time organising your perfect Glasgow Stag Party, that doesn’t mean they haven’t planned some cheeky pranks along the way. Unless you want to wake up bald, without eyebrows with your hand in luke warm water then I’d suggest sleeping with one eye open.
