Cranside Winter Village Returns

winter wonderland in Glasgow

Looking for a Winter Wonderland in Glasgow this festive season? Look no further than Finnieston’s own dynamic eatery The Cranside Kitchen. Cranside’s Winter Village returns again this year with an array of Scandinavian inspired goodies to get you in the Christmas spirit. Such was the success of last year’s reinvention, Finnieston’s eclectic street food hub will transform yet again.

From Thursday 24th Nov until Hogmanay, the kitchen’s multitude of street vendors will be on hand with delicious food and drinks, as well as live music and comedy.

With the World Cup in Quatar being screened at the venue, it might be the place to get together with your friends, enjoy a beer and watch the matches.

Renowned as the go-to outdoor venue in the summer, Cranside Winter Village is embracing all things Hygge. Immerse yourself in garlands and greenery, twinkling fairy lights and scandi-style cosiness. Heaters will keep visitors nice and toasty, or, moreover, why not hire one of the Swedish Forest Chalets? These bespoke private huts can see 6 guests enjoy their very own private pod, comfortably seated with cosy throws and fizz on hand. Alternatively, if your inner snowboarder is just dying to get out, the Kopparberg Ski Gondola is a 6-person ski lift capsule, customised for warmth and comfort. Of course there may also be a hot little Kopparberg to keep you warm inside and out. Totes Instagrammable!

All the usual Cranside Kitchen restaurants will still be available on the app as well as two new festive inspired food stalls. These will be serving hog roasts, bratwurst, and gluhwein every weekend. In addition, for a winter meal with a difference, Smokey Goodness will be cooking up Glasgow’s first winter BBQ.   

For entertainment, the Cranside Winter Village Stage hosts a variety of live entertainment and DJ sets every weekend. There will also be Christmas Comedy and party nights. Or why not visit the rooftop cocktail and whisky bar? Alternatively, the Hygge Lounge will be a fully enclosed sheltered space with a cosy atmosphere. Warming heaters and blankets will keep you snug as a bug. There are just so many options to enjoy your night out.

A Winter Wonderland in Glasgow, eating and drinking outside…with our climate? Not to worry. At Cranside Winter Village, everything is well and truly covered.
