Burgers and White Russians at this popular Finnieston pub titled and themed after the famously laid-back star of The Big Lebowski.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

How ironic that a dressing-gowned man of low ambition – the Dude in the Coen Brothers’ movie The Big Lebowski – should have become the inspirational start of an expanding hospitality empire, taking in nearby The Finnieston and Porter & Rye, plus a few other city-wide venues. In this low-lit hangout with a sign declaring ‘Abide’, remain some simple, dependable pleasures – mainly burgers by way of food, washed down with the Dude’s drink of choice: White Russian cocktails (they mix almost 30 variants of caucasian). One burger is stacked so tall you practically need two mouths – between distant halves of brioche bun lie a beef patty, a mac ’n’ cheese fritter (yes, this is a thing), smoked bacon, molasses jam, tomato and lettuce. The Karl Hungus White Russian – White Mozart Chocolate liqueur, crème de banana, chocolate sauce and 50/50 milk and cream – is as much a liquid dessert as it is a cocktail.
