TikTok creator and foodie fan extraordinaire Suzanne Blyth, aka Rare Tares, reveals the best new spots to check out in Glasgow...


203-205 Bath Street, Glasgow

Slouch has reopened after a huge renovation. The interiors have been revamped and the menu has undergone a transformation, surprising me with a generous tapas selection. Some of the more intriguing options include a Buckfast ox cheek bourguignon, as well as staple dishes such as patatas bravas and macaroni cheese. For a bar, the quality of the food caught me off guard. I’ll definitely be back.

The Herald: Flight Club

32 North Frederick Street, Glasgow

The newly opened Flight Club is part of the popular chain of bars known for social darts. I had been to their London location and was excited to check it out in Glasgow. The decor blew me away. It is designed to resemble an old-fashioned funfair and you can tell there has been so much time put into it. The cocktails were delicious – the pink fizz stood out – and the food options were decent, with mini bruschetta a personal favourite. The main event was undoubtedly the darts. We reserved a lane that accommodated up to six. Group packages make it an ideal choice for a Christmas night out.

Maggie’s Rock n Rodeo

60 Trongate, Glasgow 

The transformation of the original Maggie Mays into a country and western-style restaurant, complete with a rodeo bull, has been brilliantly executed. I loved the old Maggie Mays so I was initially a bit unsure about the refurb but it really exceeded expectations. The menu offers American favourites such as burgers, chicken and pizzas, while the cocktails are not only delicious but creative. My favourite was the Cotton Eyed Joe complete with a huge bundle of candy floss. The highlight of Maggie’s is undeniably the bucking bronco, and, even though I was admittedly too scared to try it this time, I’m definitely up for the challenge on my next visit!
