Merchant Square, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the Merchant Square in Glasgow’s Merchant City.

The Merchant City is one of the oldest quarters in Glasgow, dating back to the tobacco trading boom of the mid-18th century.

Within the Merchant City is the Merchant Square, Albion Street, a covered area which was rebuilt in 1886 and is of architectural merit in its own right.

Today, the Merchant Square has a slightly Parisian feel and is home to a number of bars and restaurants including:

There is also a club, El Barrio and a Craft & Design Fair which is held at weekends.
