Piece of My City Campaign Launches to Boost Scottish Restaurant Scene & celebrate Glasgow & Edinburgh’s restaurants

Our exciting new campaign, Piece of My City, launches this week to celebrate all that is great about the Scottish restaurant scene and give a boost to restaurants in a year when the focus is on Scotland.

Everyone is talking about Scotland; from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow to the Ryder Cup in Gleneagles, the year of the Homecoming and the referendum in September, it’s no surprise Lonely Planet named Scotland one of the top countries in the world to visit in 2014.

We couldn’t be prouder to be part of Scotland which is why it is launching Piece of My City.

Piece of My City

This summer, from April until September, Piece of My City will investigate a different neighbourhood in Glasgow and Edinburgh every other week, kicking off with Glasgow’s Merchant City on 28th April. founder, Ronnie Somerville said: “From Glasgow’s hipster haven Finnieston to Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, we’ll be taking look at what makes Scotland’s most vibrant cities tick.

“Through our website, blog, social media and newsletters, we’ll be sharing chefs secrets, taking a look at the history of each area, asking our top 5pm customers for tips and lots more.”

“And, of course, along with our videos, photos and interviews, we’ll be sharing our best dining discounts in Glasgow and Edinburgh’s top restaurants.”

Glasgow & Edinburgh restaurant scenes

Charles Shaw, Chairman of, said: “Glasgow and Edinburgh have thriving restaurant scenes to rival any major city in the world. Whether you’re looking for authentic Italian, Mongolian BBQ, fresh local seafood, or arguably the best curry in the UK, you’ll be sure to find it in either city.”

“Here at 5pm we live and breathe dining out in Scotland. With user reviews, 100s of restaurant profiles and excellent deals, is the best resource for Glasgow and Edinburgh restaurants.”

“Our restaurateurs, staff and 5pm users are an authority on dining out in Glasgow and Edinburgh. We can’t wait to share our knowledge with locals and tourists during which is sure to be an exciting summer.”
