GLASGOW’S only five-star hotel is set to open its doors to a new bar and restaurant.

Over £1 million has been spent on creating Bo & Birdy at The Blythswood Square Hotel, which will be led by the first female five-star hotel exec head chef in Scotland, Gillian Matthews.

The 146-cover restaurant and revamped bar space aims to bring a “luxury brasserie feel” to the City Centre.

Bo & Birdy will open just three months after the Blythswood’s restaurant was closed following purchase of the hotel.

She added: “I’m sure our guests will also love the informed and personal attention they will receive from our team.”

Bo & Birdy will see the recognisable red velvet features replaced to mirror the restaurant’s “farm to fabulous.”

The new bar will serve up favourite cocktails and a wide wine selection.

Bo & Birdy will open on May 15.
