Introduction

Glasgow's city centre changes character as you move from east to west, going from a frenetic blend of services, transport terminals, pubs and shops to the more sedate terraces of thoroughfares like Bath St, where upmarket offices sit over basements converted into stylish bars. This is where much of the city's quality accommodation is clustered and is also a studenty zone, with a major nightlife nexus on Sauchiehall St, which runs the length of the neighbourhood.
