“Bit pricey but the cocktails make up for it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Visited here for drinks only, so cannot comment on any food on offer.
If your looking for a bar in Glasgow there is literally an endless supply of choices so there will always be something to suit everyone.

Champagne Central is very much at the higher end of the price bracket when it comes to bars. The interior of the building is stunning after the recent renovations, so the bar is set extremely high by the time you've reached the first floor. The staff in the bar are all very friendly and you are offered table service. There is a comprehensive list of drinks available, our party stuck to the cocktails only.

They seem to range from around £8-16. The cocktails are excellent and are a great way to either start or end a night out in town, but I wouldn't spend the full night here due to the expense given the number of much cheaper options available.

A major bonus is the location of the bar, you are sitting looking down into central station and can see the train departure boards easily.

“Cream Tea”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I visited Champagne Central for their cream tea, i was really looking forward to the visit as i had never been in this old building before. my party of 4 were all disappointed with what we were given as i had imagined big scones to die for with lots of clotted cream with strawberries but it wasn't to be. We had paid in advance using an offer from one of the voucher companies for £8.50 per couple the normal price is £17,
What did we get? One small container of clotted cream to be used by all four of us, one small plain scone, one small fruit scone and a small jar of strawberry jam with a choice of tea or coffee per person. The scones were not any better than the kind you would buy from a supermarket for £1 for four. If i had paid the full price for this sitting i would have felt mugged but having paid half price i felt slightly cheated and would not recommend the Champagne Central Cream Tea to any of my friends, ok you are paying for the surroundings and the location of this excellent building with it's luxury spacious decorated room and i no doubt the other items that they provide in their restaurant would be fantastic as i seen what other diners had at their table but for the cream tea i would avoid it even at the reduced price.

“Best cocktails in Glasgow!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Late Sunday afternoon was a perfect time to get a comfortable seat and a cocktail in Champagne Central, previously any visit has left me standing and so busy the beauty of the environment could not be truly appreciated.
It felt like a real decadent treat and the knowledgable staff helped us all choose our perfect cocktail.
Our large group all enjoyed the perfectly made cocktails and agreed they are the best in Glasgow, pricey but as treat were affordable, (a wee happy hour would be a fabulous idea!).

“Pricey but gorgeous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

It is expected when you walk in that the prices for drinks will be high but if you are looking for somewhere classy to drink and don't mind paying for it then this is the place to be! The waiters are very friendly and knowledgeable about all the different drinks and cocktails. The cocktails were brilliant and a good measure. The surroundings are stunning. Will definitely be going back for a nice evening drink with my boyfriend or friends. Good for a treat.
