Glaswegians certainly adore a cute rooftop, especially when it’s heated, AND has fairy lights. We can officially add another rooftop restaurant and bar to the list, with Kong Roof Garden having opened its doors this weekend (November 18).
Located on Royal Exchange Square, Kong Glasgow is a multi-room bar, restaurant and nightclub and has become quite popular among locals and visitors alike. Whether you’re catching up with pals over brunch, dining out in the evening, just after a wee cocktail or want to dance the night away, the spot has it all.
Kong’s newest venture is the Kong Roof Garden, boasting a view of the city’s rooftops, trendy yet inviting decor, as well as plenty of fairy lights to lighten up the evenings the right way. The all-season heated Roof Garden offers all the familiar Kong vibes, with music and DJs transporting guests to another world of craft cocktails and indulgent amounts of food.
Surrounded by lush greenery and colourful textiles, visitors can be sure that the sky’s the limit when it comes to having a good time at “the ultimate botanical escape“.
The spot is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm until late, as well as Saturdays and Sundays from noon until late. Plus, guests can enjoy £4.95 cocktails, wine and fizz on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays!
When it comes to food in Kong, visitors can expect to find everything from bao buns to Buttermilk Fried Squid. However, the place is famous for its Kong Fried Chicken (KFC) with spicy Korean glaze and toasted sesame seeds, with vegetarians can also able to enjoy the KFC Cauliflower.
And for the cocktail menu, all the classics like Margaritas and Mojitos, as well as uniquely crafted concoctions. Try the Kong Mule with Del Maguey Mezcal, Lime, Sugar Syrup and Fever Tree Ginger Beer, or go for the Kong Spritz with Ciroc, Blue Curacao, Lemon and lemonade.
