Can I book a table for drinks?

All tables for drinks only are issued on a first come, first served basis and cannot be pre-booked. As one of Glasgow’s largest cocktail bars, we have over 70 socially-distanced tables so we’ll try our best to get you a table as quickly as possible.

As per Government guidelines, you can book a table for up to 4 people from a maximum of 2 households.

How long can I book a table for?

There is currently a maximum stay of two hours per table.

I have a voucher that has expired, can I still use it?

Yes, we’ve extended all expired vouchers (including Itison and 5pm) until the end of June 2021.

Do you have tables outside?

Yes, we now have an extended area outside with 12 tables, allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Can I call to book a table?

All bookings for our restaurant must be made online and we will not be accepting bookings over the phone.

What safety measures do you have in place?

As before, details for every table will be taken for track and trace and a one-way system will be in operation. We would ask that you enter from Candleriggs and exit through the Merchant Square. Masks should be worn whilst moving around inside such as visiting the toilets or upon arrival/departure. Social distancing measures will also be in place and hand sanitiser will also be available throughout the venue.

Are you open late at the weekend?

Under the current Government guidelines, we’ll be open from 12-10.30pm seven days a week. If the guidelines change, we will, of course, change our opening times accordingly but please check our social channels for the latest news.
