Starry Eyed in Baby Grand

by Dean
(Glasgow, South Side)

I'd heard about Baby Grand - the original one near Charing Cross, but I'd never been. I'd also heard it was a bit tricky to find. And it was!

Once there, we had such a laugh that we've been back 3 times in the last month. Really! The bit I read on Top Secret said Baby Grand is like an oasis in a concrete desert - or something like that - and they were right.

The other people who go are friendly and relaxed, and one of the nights we turned up, someone was playing the piano in the back. The atmosphere!

How can I describe it? WOW!

We can stay all day...

Good to know. We tend to think about a trip to Baby Grand after a long lie at the weekend.

Papers lying around are very tempting. We've been known to go for brunch, and still be there when dinner should be roasting - at home!

Worth Finding Baby Grand Charing X...
by: Howard

We first went to Baby Grand at Charing Cross a couple of years ago, soon after moving to Glasgow. We'd heard about this "impossible to find" watering hole that only locals know about. That got us interested. Then a colleague told me an easy way to get there - apart from by taxi!

We took the low level train from Queen Street, getting off at the 1st stop - Charing Cross. When you reach ground level, go out the door on the right, and Baby Grand is straight ahead, up a few steps.

I sound like a local, don't I?

Seriously though. Baby Grand has become one of our very favourite places to spend an hour or two. Safe to say we think we're Glasgow's biggest Baby Grand fans!

Agree - great local spot

We dropped in after a gig at the ABC on Sauchiehall Street last week. We were already bouncing, after the great music, and Baby Grand kept us high as kites while we blethered about our gig.

It was a warn evening, and we even managed to get a table outside.

Still a Favourite...
by: Adrian

I first went to Baby Grand back in the late 80s, and I've been away from dear old Glasgow for more than 15 years. I was home to see the folks, and my new neice, recently, and wondered if it was still there. Thankfully it is!

It was like stepping back into a memory of my youth. I doubt if much had changed. Still the same cool crowd, a few theatre types, I think. Plus a cosy atmosphere and pretty good food.

I had a nosey at the menu, and it looks like Baby Grand is still just about the best place to visit for Sunday brunch. How could I have forgotten those pancakes with bacon and maple syrup? Guaranteed to kill a hangover in 10 minutes flat!

... a wee tip ... if you're at all starry-eyed, I've see a LOT of famous people drinking in there over the years.

Take your autograph book!
