On Glasgow's Great Western Road, Squid & Whale is completely unassuming from the outside (it looks more like a dimly lit cafe) but when you make it inside, you see people littered around the bar, wooden tables and dj decks! As with many of Glasgow's venues, music is the anchor. As a bonus, it looks like Frida Kahlo did the decorating, and when you come to choose your tipple you'll have a serious case of choice anxiety: there are more than 50 beers and ciders on offer, and a particular specialisation in American craft lagers. If you are going for dinner, make sure you book!
There are clearly marked vegan options - go for the massive bowl of guacamole and tortilla chips, but share these, (and we never encourage sharing, but trust us, you'll need room for the main course!)
Wash it down with something strong from their extensive (and vegan-approved by the Gods at Barnivore) list and you've got yourself an amazing time - you'll be so happy with your meal, it won't matter if your date sucks!
