A Girls Night Out in Glasgow…

Lauren Moffatt – Food & Beverage Manager

I love a night out with my girls, whether it’s celebrating something special or a much-needed catch up, nothing beats a chance to let your hair down with your best pals! But more often than not, it’s impossible to find a venue that fits the bill; somewhere big enough to squeeze the whole crowd in, somewhere with a range of entertainment to keep even the fuss pots happy, and most importantly, somewhere guaranteed to make it an amazing night - that’s a tough ask…

Not at Alea Glasgow, it’s not! We make a bee line here for each and every night out, big or small, precisely because it ticks all of those boxes. Boasting two plush bars, a fantastic restaurant, a gorgeous VIP Lounge, incredible events and plenty of gaming fun to be had, it’s the ideal spot for any celebration!

For the cocktail lovers… try a masterclass!

Who doesn’t love shaking it ‘til they make it?! Alea’s cocktail masterclasses are a great way to let loose, learn a thing or two about your favourite tipple, and of course, enjoy sweet somethings with your best mates. Situated within the gorgeous Long Bar, our experienced mixologists will show you the ropes and share top tips on how to make the perfect cocktail, before you’re given free reign in coming up with your own creative concoction. The perfect activity for hen dos or birthday bashes, you and your girls can then take a seat, admire your handy work and enjoy! Find out more

Sweet sipping for just £5!

If you’d rather sit back and let someone else do the hard work for you, make sure you and your pals hit up the Long Bar and sip the night away with £5 cocktails! Available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (excluding December), you can choose from the likes of a cool and creamy White Russian, a fruity and flirty Very Berry Smash, or a super smooth French Martini – yes please!

Calling all gin fans!

With a billion brand new gin distilleries having popped up across Scotland (and beyond!), it’s impossible not to get swept up by the artisan gin craze! Luckily Alea has an incredible range of juniper jewels to choose from, and if you fancy learning a little bit more about them, you can take part in a fab gin masterclass in our beautiful Long Bar. Sampling a wide range of premium spirits, you’ll get to grips with perfectly pairing your gins, mixers and garnishes under the watchful eye of our super skilled bartenders. After enjoying your scrummy self-made G&Ts, you’ll also tuck into a delicious afternoon tea - cake and gin, what more could a girl ask for? Find out more

Want glitz & glamour? Get a booth!

If you fancy making a night of it in our glitzy and glamorous Long Bar, get comfy with our Ladies’ Booth package! Your own reserved space for the whole night, you and the girls can unwind with two bottles of Prosecco and a yummy selection of bar bites whilst you enjoy live entertainment from the Long Bar’s weekend singers (and at only £65, this is an absolute steal!).

Fancy a bite to eat?

If like me, you get more excited about a slow-cooked beef bourguignon than a Bellini, you’re gonna want to check out our incredible Waterfront Restaurant! With a kitchen headed up by an award-winning chef and a menu that showcases the very best of Scotland’s larder, this is the ideal spot to wine and dine with your nearest and dearest. Overlooking the River Clyde and boasting some of the city’s best views, this stylish restaurant champions excellent food, a fantastic drinks menu as well as top notch service – the perfect recipe for the perfect evening!

Psst! If you’re planning on getting the girls together on a Friday night, don’t miss the Waterfront’s fab Flamin’ Fridays offer! You can tuck into sirloin steaks with fries plus a bottle of Prosecco between two, all for just £25 – now that’s a deal that you don’t wanna miss! Check out the full menu here

Bigger group? Check out our private dining room…

Seating up to 18 people, the Waterfront Restaurant’s private dining room is a fab spot to enjoy a bite to eat with the girls in your own exclusive area. Ideal for a hen do, birthday night out or graduation celebration, you can decorate the room with pretty balloons and banners, plus you’ll even have private access to the restaurant’s stunning balcony! Cue the cutest Insta pics…

Fancy a flutter? Then learn to play!

There’s always one person in the group who’s never been in a casino before, let alone tried their hand at gaming! Alea’s Learn to Play packages are an awesome way to introduce first timers to Blackjack and Roulette, with a private 40 minute session and your own dedicated dealer to show you the ropes. Taking your pick of packages, you can opt to include a three-course meal in the restaurant before or after your play, or keep it casual with pizza and chips to share. To top it all off, each package even includes a free drink and £5 bet to get you started! Find out more

Already an experienced gamer? Fear not, Alea’s gaming floor has something for everyone – from Three Card Poker to Electronic Roulette, Slots, Blackjack and more!

Make your night sparkle with Diamonds Are Forever!

Fancy going one step further and really making it a night to remember? Then you’re gonna wanna check out the casino’s Diamonds Are Forever package! For just £50pp, you and the girls will take part in a fab cocktail masterclass before tucking into a delicious meal in the Waterfront Restaurant. After dinner, you’ll then move to the gaming floor for a Learn to Play experience with your choice of Roulette or Poker, and as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll each enjoy a free bet on the Roulette Table. This makes for one hell of a surprise for the birthday girl, bride-to-be or your bestie! Find out more

Enjoy the VIP treatment in our stunning lounge!

I mean, who doesn’t love being treated like a VIP?! If you and your girls are a group of up to 10, Alea’s VIP Lounge has your name written all over it! Kitted out with super sparkly décor, illuminated LED furniture, your own private mini bar and (most importantly!) a 50” LED screen with inbuilt karaoke machine, this is the perfect place to let loose your inner Britney and belt out some tunes with your pals.
