Cocktail Bar
Pull up a seat and step back in time. Our Champagne bar overlooks Central Station and evokes the golden age of travel, with a sash of style and lashings of charm.

For those feeling peckish, food is fine, flavoursome, and focuses on small plates and sharing boards. Afternoon tea has a special place on the menu and is – of course – best taken with a glass of Champagne. Breakfast is also served in Champagne Central, for residents and non-residents alike.

Awarded the Best Hotel Bar in Glasgow at the 2019 Best Bar None awards.

    The Afternoon Tea was very tasty and presented well. The Staff were very attentive and pleasant and explained everything to us clearly. The adjoining bar is a nice relaxing place to have a drink and watch the bustle of the train station without the noise.

    we attended for my mother's 70th birthday tea. we had to wait a while to be seated, but we overall had a nice time. the tea and food was all delicious. we noticed one thing though it was very busy and only one member of staff on the front of house/restaurant and serving everyone. regardless of what other staff where doing to help support the team, this young gentleman was on his own and he did extremely well under the pressure. he hasn't worked there long and he was so polite and well mannered we felt bad he had no support from his team or no manager on the scene. plenty of customer complained and gave dirty looks after having to wait and people complained about seating and wanted moved. the gentleman's name was Aniagh (apologises if spelling incorrect) but i wanted to thank him for his service as people where leaving they all thanked him as he accomodated everyones huff and puff and made everyone feel easy and enjoyed there day! please give more support to your team. thank you for a great day.

    Couldn’t have been more perfect! I brought my mother for an afternoon tea with my sister and it was the loveliest experience! The ladies working were friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. The food was a real highlight , the food choices were delicious and really creative! It was a nice elegant room that felt fancy but welcoming. We had a wonderful time and my mum has raved about it ever since! We would definitely come back! Especially for white ganache tart! Thank you to everyone involved for making it such a great afternoon for us!

    The place was not busy, with about 12 people in the restaurant. Staff were totally flustered, as most tables were sending the food back to the kitchen, several people walked out. My wife ordered eggs Benedict and was served 2 hard boiled eggs with some hollandaise sauce on it, 50% of my full Scottish was edible, the rest I left. Thankfully we weren’t to hungry so laughed it off.

    Lovely decor, nice staff, very slow and inexperienced. No ambiance in lounge area and slightly cold. Ordered Aperol spritz, came in small wine glass :( also ordered mixed nuts as snacks nice but small for £6. Toilets are miles away down a cold corridor, they had faulty locks and over flown bins. A bit crap for a luxury hotel. Glad we booked the lounge area as bar corridor seating looked soulless. Overall a lovey looking place but could do with some tweaks for the price tag and glad we had table service as the queue at the bar never seemed to go down.

    Lacked ambiance and atmosphere for us. Food was nice, no cocktail menu available. We were advised that most any cocktail classics would be available and if we wanted anything else to ask. I did and they couldn’t do it. Bit of a shame as we were looking forward to it. We cancelled the reservation for the next evening. Staff were lovely, professional and courteous therefore would not fault them one bit.

    Very disappointed in our experience of afternoon tea. Food poor quality and unexciting not at all fitting the standard the hotel aspires to. Boring cheap fillings in the sandwiches, scones very dry (unlikely fresh) and ‘factory produce’ cakes. Room uncomfortably cold, appeared to be well staffed and although they were all very pleasant service was painfully slow - no obvious reason, place wasn’t busy, waited 30 minutes plus after ordering and between serving our tea and then receiving the food therefore tea was cold. Waited another 40 minutes after ordering cocktails and given how cold the room was it was an uncomfortable wait. Sorry to say I wouldn’t go back.

    I did not have food but just drinks in the seated area. Waited for 20 minutes for our order to be taken and then 20 minutes for cocktails to come. I think the trick is to double order! Someone actually left without paying and no one noticed!

    No contact made to advise seating limited due to function. 2x 70 year olds had to sit on high bar seats!!? Could have returned.. in an hour.. no guarantee! Another time.. travelled from Ayrshire.. not tempting! Dietary needs were advised on booking.. not accounted for.. had cheese and ham sandwiches made up. Prosecco asked for didn’t appear! Poor show

    Woeful - tables cluttered with dirty glasses, not as if it was busy, this time we managed to get in without wading through throngs of people. Sat down, ordered 4 basic non complex drinks (2 pints, 1 cola & 1 gin/tonic) and waited, waited & waited - 20m later we got up & walked out, absolutely abysmal establishment, don’t waste your time or money coming here, it’s living of it location and that’s all.

    Staff worked hard to fix the fact that some cocktails were simply not available. Staff returned to take order 3 times as first two attempts were not available.. in a cocktail bar! A complimentary drink was provided. They looked under pressure and we ultimately moved on. Staff were polite and apologetic. (No food eaten.. site requires a rating to move on to next page)

    Waited nearly half an hour for a drink order to be taken. Then had to ask for coffee with our afternoon tea. Two flat finger sandwiches and a shot glass of prawns each. The scones were nice though but service was really poor. Not worth it on this occasion. Hope this was just a bad day for them…

    Would not recommend this at all. Waited 15 minutes to be acknowledged then a further 15 minutes before getting a drink. Complained twice and manager couldn’t care less, was a terrible experience and ruined a birthday treat. Would never go back and have happily shared this on social media. Don’t waste your money.

    Afternoon tea in itself was lovely, but was let down by poor service. We were seated for 15 minutes before anyone even came to organise our Bellini cocktail. It was then a further 10 minutes before it appeared. Very slow in bringing out the afternoon tea, and when they did I then had to hunt down a waiter to take our tea/coffee orders. The girl who mainly ended up serving us was lovely, but she seemed to be the only one actively attending to customers. One wsiter, who was heavy with long dyed redarkish red hair and dresses all in black, made it her mission to ignore all attempts by customers to get her attention. She just floated about trying to appear busy, but doing as little as possible, it was such a shame, as the good and atmosphere were lovely, but not sure if I’d go back due to the service.

    The service was appalling. We waited over 30 minutes for our order. Our waiter had an attitude which we didn’t like but then he seemed to realise he was being very off hand and gave us some free nuts 😳 We used to love this place pre Covid but we won’t be back. Disappointing.

    We had a fabulous afternoon tea at Grand Central Champagne Bar. We were celebrating my birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it extra special. The place has a great buzz about it which is lovely. The food was really fresh and delicious. The attention to detail was excellent. We always enjoy ourselves there and can't wait to return. Thanks again to the staff.

    Booked using 5pm Voucher, despite dietary requirements given to 3 separate people, incorrect order served 3 times. Quality of food was appalling, 2 small sandwiches with one slice of tomato and cucumber being the offering for pescatarian! Despite being a voucher, a higher quality of service and food was expected from Champagne Central. Would not return or recommend.

    When booking, I confirmed that I don’t eat egg mayonnaise sandwiches. On arrival, I informed the waitress again that I don’t eat egg mayonnaise and this was repeated for a third time when another waitress asked about allergies. When the cakes/sandwiches stands were brought to the table the waitress confirmed that the stand in front of me had no mayonnaise. However, disappointingly, two of the four sandwiches on the plate were egg mayonnaise sandwiches. This was incredibly disappointing given the number of times I had stated that I can’t eat this filling. The other sandwiches also contained mayonnaise with a cheese filling and the bread was stale (which is another issue!) We had three children with us and I was told the kids would have their own afternoon tea selection. The adults’ afternoon teas arrived first and there was no sign of anything being brought out for the kids. I asked another waitress about their afternoon tea when it didn’t arrive and was told that in fact they don’t offer a kids’ afternoon tea (which contradicted what the first waitress had told me). She offered to ask the chefs to make up a selection of sandwiches and at this point the kids were getting restless and fed up so I said that would be fine. We had already waited over an hour by this point with no food for the kids. The adults had finished their afternoon tea and there was still no sign of any food coming out for the kids. My mother asked the waitress how long it would be and was told that the kitchen was busy but the chef was working on it. This was unacceptable given the length of time we had waited and something as simple as a plain cheese/ham sandwich for a child doesn’t take long to make. One small plate of sandwiches (4 triangles) was eventually brought out for the 3 kids to share just as we were getting ready to leave. I told the waiter about these issues just as we were about to leave and although he apologised he seemed disinterested and simply said that it was “chaotic”.
