About Us

City centre destination for food, drinks, music & more…

What is Platform?

Platform is a vibrant bar, restaurant and events venue located in the heart of Glasgow City Centre directly below Glasgow’s central station.

We boast a large, welcoming space, perfect for bigger groups, celebrations, nights out with friends or just a quick drink with your significant other on the weekend.  

Our impressive space utilises Glasgow’s famous underground arches, giving our bar and restaurant area a unique, authentic  look. We’ve remodeled the space to give a more welcoming feel to our customers, with plenty of tables, light and décor which creates one of most original bar and restaurants in Glasow.  

You can book a table ahead of time for you and your group to avoid missing out on the fun!
