    Scotland’s second city is a cultural icon, a collection of striking Victorian and Art Nouveau architecture acting as a legacy of its time as a prosperous trading port. Although the ships have left, their international flair lives on, and Glasgow is a cultural hotspot, home to official institutions such as the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, as well as a host of fringe theatre and contemporary artists.

    Our guests were keen to experience Scotland’s largest city while visiting for the Euro 2020 qualifying match between Scotland and Belgium. We created a cultural itinerary that took in everything from formal exhibitions at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which showcases art from the Renaissance era and artifacts from Ancient Egypt, to soaking up the local scene on Ashton Lane, known for its numerous lively bars and traditional pubs. Glasgow also boasts an exciting contemporary restaurant scene, and the group indulged in Scottish fine dining at Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery, and French / Scottish fusion at Cail Bruich.

    European Football Championship & Culture Trip

    The Buttery is one of Glasgow’s best-loved and most enduring restaurants, and has gone from strength to strength since becoming part of the Two Fat Ladies group. The interior celebrates formal Scottish luxury, with oak and mahogany, stained glass and tartan carpet bringing a unique intimate feel to the bar and the dining room, whilst still keeping a relaxed atmosphere

    Of course, the main event was the match. Guests were staying at the five-star The Kimpton Blythswood, and Blend Group organised private transfers to facilitate a seamless arrival at their halfway line box at Hampden Park, the home of Scottish football. The VIP hospitality package included pre-game drinks at the bar and fine dining before kick-off, as well as a selection of foods and champagne at half time.

    No trip to Scotland would be complete without a whiskey tasting. To top off this traditional visit, as a last, post-game experience, our guests set off to visit one of Glasgow’s preferred pub’s, The Pot Still, a local distillery with over 700 blends to choose from. A mixture of local recommendation and blind faith, our group thoroughly enjoyed the final activity of the weekend. Slàinte!
