Glasgow area guide
A vibrant city centre
Set against a backdrop of Victorian architecture, the city of Glasgow has been reborn as one of the UK's most cosmopolitan destinations. With its renowned art collections, high-end shopping galleries, vibrant nightlife and acclaimed local music scene, there's truly something to suit every visitor in Glasgow.
The area in which Apex City of Glasgow Hotel is located is the heart of Glasgow's City Centre. Bounded on either side by the refined atmosphere and quiet streets of the Blythswood Square and the fast-paced pedestrian area of Buchanan Street, this section of Glasgow is home to the city's most prominent performing arts venues, many of its corporate offices, and some of Scotland's best nightlife and dining. Bath Street itself offers a charming mix of architectural styles, ranging from well-kept three story townhouses to more modern buildings, like the glass-fronted Apex City of Glasgow Hotel. Basement bars and cafes reside below small corporate offices, and many of the area's major intersections are marked by iconic structures such as the Theatre Royal and the Gallery of Modern Art.
As Glasgow has accelerated into the 21st century, its city centre has developed into a bustling and dynamic space filled with everything from high-end shops to quaint cafes and modest pubs. The city's transformation has been spurred by one of the world's most thrilling contemporary arts scenes and a world-class university, the Glasgow School of Art. The city acts as an incubator for cutting-edge music, art and cuisine, with creativity around every corner.
