Media Release: Come round to the Square for the British Open


MERCHANT Square in Merchant City, the heart of the Glasgow’s cultural, fashion and food quarter, has issued an open invitation to golf lovers to come and watch the British Open 2011 in the comfort of an enclosed Victorian courtyard from this Thursday 14 July to Sunday 17 July.

Live coverage from all the action at Royal St George’s will be broadcast on the Square’s giant central screen whilst golf aficionados can wine and dine in comfort under a glittering canopy of stars safe from the risk of rain.

Jenni Morrison, of Merchant Square, said: “Last week’s Scottish Open might have been a washout, but there’s no risk of the British Open being a washout at Merchant Square!

“Golf is one of these sports that spectators can arguably enjoy more following live on television than at the event itself – especially so if it’s raining – and our eclectic mix of bars and restaurants mean that there’s nowhere better in Glasgow city centre to sit back and enjoy the golfing drama unfold.”

Merchant Square is Glasgow’s most vibrant venue for a worldwide selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, including: Bar Square; Beer Café; Sizzlers Steakhouse & Ocean Grill; Fanellis; Metropolitan; Boudoir Wine Bar; Arisaig; O’Neill’s and Mercado.

Located on Candleriggs, Merchant Square, once part of the old Glasgow Fruit Market, is imbued with the history of the area’s dominating Victorian architecture, although today this sense of history blends seamlessly with the distinctly cosmopolitan ambiance that pervades the surrounding cobbled streets that bring the outside in.
