Inject some extraordinary into an ordinary Tuesday

If Mondays are blue, Tuesday must be drab, dishwater grey.  But there’s no better place to shake off the dreary than Sloan’s Eat Film night in Glasgow.

As the name suggest, Tuesdays at Sloan’s offers a night of film coupled with hearty pub grub that won’t break the bank.  It’s free entry for the film and then completely up to you as to how much you eat, drink and spend.  Fill up on a scotch pie (£5.95), fish and chunky chips with tartar sauce (£8.95), rocky road brownie (£4.95) or there’s bags of pick & mix for a fiver for the more traditionalist film-goer.

Eat Film at Sloan's Bar in GlasgowSmall circular tables are arranged mostly in two-seaters around the Grand Ball Room, which holds about 20 -25 people.

Orders are taken, candles lit and it all has a kind of cabaret feeling.  Once we’ve devoured our meals, tables are cleared and the big (little) screen lights up.

Tuesday blahs banished

The Jungle Book leaps off the screen and I’m reunited with some of my childhood favourites Baloo and Mowgli; instantly the Tuesday haze is lifted.  Eat Film is about the experience rather than gourmet nosh.  And what a great experience.

But if a cartoon dancing bear and a fussing panther aren’t your thing, you might be enticed by one of Eat Film’s other eclectic choices. Upcoming film nights include Bambi, Boogie Nights and one of my all-time favourites Amelie!

So go on, do something different and shake up your Tuesday.  Everything kicks off at 7pm but definitely call ahead (0141 221 8886) or book online  to avoid disappointment – because seats are limited.

So much more than film…

As Glasgow oldest pub – and not to be outdone – Sloan’s boast a healthy events calendar, including one of the liveliest Ceilidhs in town, Thursday’s ‘bad boy’ pub quiz night and for all those still wondering where to celebrate the bard and address the haggis, look no further than here on the 25th .
