Let's Meet at - The Living Room, Glasgow

Reviewed by Christine McAllister, account director at Budge PR.

This is an airy piano bar and restaurant in earthy tones - like a Manhattan loft with a colonial twist.

Since it opened in 2004, it has become a regular lunchtime and after-work haunt for foodies and suits from Glasgow's business and international financial services districts.

So what's the secret of its success? Like any good dish, no single element dominates. It's the combination of food, setting and people. Whether you want to tuck yourself away in a private booth to talk to clients about future campaigns, or crowd round the white piano to celebrate a success, this restaurant - under the watchful eye of general manager Ross Butler - caters for both with equal style.

The staff work the 140-cover restaurant and 200-capacity bar well, joining in the fun of choosing cocktails before moving into the restaurant to help pick wines for your meal.

Music in the bar is a highlight - the latest sounds from local musicians are interspersed with boogie-woogie and up-beat blues, played on the super-stylish grand piano that is surrounded by lovely foliage.

In the main restaurant, wooden floors and subtle lighting transport you into a cocoon of privacy and elegance that make doing business here a pleasure.
