Merchant City

The Merchant City was formerly the main residential district of the wealthy city merchants in the 18th and early 19th centuries, particularly the Tobacco Lords from whom many of the streets take their name. Surrounded by the area’s dominating Victorian architecture, the Merchant City is once again one of the most prestigious parts of the City.

The Merchant City has been rejuvenated with luxury city centre apartments and warehouse conversions. This has supported an increasing number of cafés and restaurants. The area is also home to a number of high end boutique style shops and some of Glasgow’s most upmarket stores.
