Occupying a prime spot on Merchant Square, Boudoir is a neighbourhood bar offering high-end products. Having lived and worked in both Italy and France, owner Darren decided to bring the charm of European wine bars to Glasgow, and thus Boudoir was opened in 2010. Since opening it has received a multitude of accolades including The Scottish Wine Award and has been named a finalist in The Icon Awards’ venue of the year category. Boudoir stocks an extensive selection of Old and New World wine, with French and Italian varieties taking centre stage. Along with the 100-strong wine list, the offering includes aperitif cocktails and cheese and charcuterie boards. If you’re having difficulty deciding, select from the wine sampler menu, which offers four intriguing varieties accompanied by bread and oils. Private wine tastings are also hosted here.
