”To say we are excited to bring the second ever 63rd+1st venue to Glasgow would be an understatement. We have always felt the love and loyalty from our Scottish guests and we can’t wait for them to join us and be spoilt by the 63rd+1st experience.”

Sian O’Brien, General Manager of 63rd+1st Glasgow, added: ”Having successfully launched the brand in Cobham alongside renowned resturanteur Dawid Samulczyk, formerly of Soho House and Gordon Ramsay stable, I jumped at the opportunity  to return home to Scotland to lead the 63rd+1st Glasgow team. 

”Two or more is the rule at 63rd+1st – whether that’s food, drink and company! Although if you do turn up on your own, it is the perfect environment to meet people. From handcrafted cocktails accompanied by amazing sharing plates, to delicious dishes perfectly paired with a bottle from our extensive wine list, we’ve got you covered. We can’t wait to see everyone soon.”
