sloans Sloan’s is an institution in Glasgow as the oldest bar and restaurant still operating in the city. On Friday nights Sloans hosts a weekly ceilidh in their upstairs ballroom. They also have a nice sized courtyard with umbrellas, making it the perfect place to enjoy a pint come rain or shine. On Saturday and Sunday, the courtyard is also home to a cute market where you can pick up jewelry, specialty foods and gifts. Other Mahogany bars to try are Dram! and Oran Mor which is a beautiful converted church, both located in the West End of Glasgow. Phot by Adam Bruderer Sloans 108 Argyle Street, City Centre, G2 8BG Phot by Steven Fyfe Did you know...? Haggis is the national dish of Scotland and is a strangely tasty sausage-like dish made of sheep organs, cooked in the animal’s stomach. Don’t try bringing it into the USA as it contains sheep’s lung which can’t be imported into the States. Fear not, there is always vegetarian haggis. Try other national favourites such as cheesy chips and deep fried anything in any Fish and Chip shop found all over the city. A céilidh (kay-lee) is a night filled with live Gaelic folk music and dancing. You will collapse exhausted and covered in bruises, but with a big smile in your face!
