Looking for somewhere new and interesting to kick off your hen or stag celebrations in Glasgow?
This week saw the launch of Chez Mal Brasserie at Malmaison Glasgow. Formerly The Honours restaurant by Martin Wishart, the new Chez Mal Brasserie is headed up by chef John Burns, who describes his cooking style as Anglo-French (“or maybe Franco-Scottish,” he says). SWD headed along to Chez Mal on its launch night to enjoy a few drinks in the adjoining Mal bar before sampling some of the food in the new brasserie, including a delicious steak. The menu will vary throughout the year but you can expect modern French and Asian cuisine alongside classic Malmaison dishes including the Mal burger, fishcakes and chateaubriand for two.
Decor-wise the brasserie is classy but modern, with glittering domed ceilings and plush seats.
The bar is a bit more youthful and colourful; think exposed bulb pendant lights, bright chairs and pop art prints.
We reckon it’d be an ideal place to start a weekend of hen partying, especially on a Friday between 5pm and 8pm when you can get cocktails, signature drinks and glasses of champagne for a bargainous fiver.
Alternatively, cure a killer hangover with the Sunday Brunch which costs £19.95.
Oh, and don’t forget that Malmaison Glasgow is a wedding venue too! Located on West George Street, it’s housed in a gorgeous former Greek Orthodox Church building and is ideal for small-medium weddings.
There are intimate suites for celebrations of up to 20 guests, and if your wedding is larger than this the suites can be combined to hold up to 80 people for your ceremony and reception and up to 56 people for your wedding meal.
