Butterfly bliss awaits you at Boudoir

Boudoir wine bar is in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the Merchant City.  But the world outside disappears once I slip into the inviting curtained booth – and I’m instantly seduced by the chic but cosy Italian and French-inspired design.

Cocktail choices galore

Extensive cocktail menu at Boudoir in GlasgowThe 12-page drinks menu is equally captivating, offering up a delicious range of unusual but delightfully named cocktails.

With its intimate setting and soft lighting, Boudoir is  perfect place for a saucy rendezvous.  Failing that, it’s ideal for shaking off the work day with friends on a Thursday night – and that’s exactly what I do.

After a quick up and down the menu – I begin with the Aivy Vodka and Fentimans Tonic.  It can only be described as dangerously delicious and refreshing.  A combination I highly recommend for vodka drinkers.

Variety is the spice of life

Spicy Merchant of Venice cocktail at Boudoir in GlasgowHours pass like minutes and the conversation and cocktails flow.

Among our favourites are the delicate Violet Butterfly – a beautiful concoction of Giffard  Violette Liqueur, Finlandia Vodka, fresh lemon juice and prosecco.  With just the right hint of cinnamon, the  spicy Merchant of Venice is also tasty.

In the background a pianists sets the soundtrack to our perfect night.  And when – after a few drinks –  hunger calls, we choose from a delightful menu of reasonably priced light bites.  The cheese board is an absolute must.

We reluctantly stray from cocktails to a bottle of Petit Bourgeois red.  It’s anything but stuffy or predictable – it’s heavenly.  Just as refreshing, the staff are equally charming and accommodating.

So if you want round-up the week with friends in an sensational space, a secluded  booth at Boudoir awaits you.
