Booked a table as this is my first time going to bucks bar and wanted to see what all the hype was about and safe to say It lived up to it! Greeted by the charisma fueled manger Sully and seated promptly, shoutout to Calum for the great service and awesome Cocktails! Drinks were taken straight away and food order did not feel rushed, asked for a few minutes to have a look at the extensive menu and when the two burgers that we ordered arrived it felt like we got a full chicken in one as the burgers were MASSIVE! Sweet potato fries are a must here as they were the best we've had, definitely give the siriacha mac and cheese a try as my girlfriend said it was delicious! All in all a great atmosphere with staff that made us feel very comfortable! Will definitely be back!

About the restaurant
Pull up a seat and step back in time. Our Champagne bar overlooks Central Station and evokes the golden age of travel, with a sash of style and lashings of charm.

For those feeling peckish, food is fine, flavoursome, and focuses on small plates and sharing boards. Afternoon tea has a special place on the menu and is – of course – best taken with a glass of Champagne. Breakfast is also served in Champagne Central, for residents and non-residents alike.

Awarded the Best Hotel Bar in Glasgow at the 2019 Best Bar None awards.
