As the city's major art and culture hub, many hotels in this area are influenced by the bohemian lifestyle the West End promotes. Every hotel is unique, and many are owned and operated by locals, rather than a chain or franchise. This has led to wonderfully eclectic designs and the repurposing of some of the city's oldest and most beloved buildings.

A booming entertainment quarter, it's where the expansive Scottish Event Campus is located, making it the city's home of live concerts.

Trongate and East End
