The Moët & Chandon Roof Terrace Bar at 29

For a number of reasons, dinking champagne on a rooftop terrace is something that seldom happens around these parts but all that could change as Glasgow’s 29 launches its Moët & Chandon Roof Terrace Bar – the only one in Scotland.

Part of the private members’ club at 29 Royal Exchange Square, the new bar is on the venue’s fourth floor so that the timber decked space looks out over Glasgow’s rooftops. The new venue boasts several private seating areas; a newly designed 7ft bespoke Moët & Chandon bar; a new, al fresco menu and one of the most extensive champagne lists in Glasgow starting from £10.35 per glass.

Patio heaters

The new venue features four Moët & Chandon gazebos complete with low slung sofas and table service. The gazebos are designed to keep the sun off champagne-sipping guests but, this being Scotland, they are also equipped with high-spec patio heaters for those rare days when the sun isn’t shining and the temperature isn’t in the mid-twenties.

Special drinks packages will enable guests to reserve their own private gazebo. Packages start at £110 but, for the maximum price of £320, guests can enjoy a bottle of premium spirit, 14 miniature mixers, and 10 individual cocktails of their choosing as well as two chilled bottles of Moët & Chandon.

Pre-theatre menu

29 is a private members’ club but non-members can use all the facilities if they eat in the venue. The Grill Room at the Square is 29’s main restaurant area and it is also incredibly popular with 5pm users. Over 1800 5pm users have booked meals at the Grill Room and, together, you have given it a stunning 4.5/5 rating.

The Grill Room is currently offering a 2 course lunch or pre-theatre menu for £15.50 through 5pm. The Moët & Chandon Roof Terrace Bar opens officially on Friday. Could be a good excuse to have a post work glass of champagne followed by dinner.

Sticking with 29, look out for a great Big Deal on afternoon tea with a glass of Prosecco which runs on Friday.
