Unassuming and friendly bar in Merchant City that nicely straddles the lines between traditional and cool.
Nestling in a corner building at the edge of the Merchant City, Pavement quietly opened its doors last year, and makes up for its fairly spartan décor with a genuine warmth of personality and service – as well as being friendly and welcoming to both kids and dogs. The basic geometry of an old-fashioned pub is maintained, with small circular tables flanking curved bench seating. It has regulars, and locals, which gives it a bit more energy than many a Merchant City spot can muster during the week. There’s also an impressive little range of craft beers behind the fridge, with makes like Beerbliotek form Gothenburg, and Glasgow breweries Acid Brewing Cartel and Overtone. Food keeps with the times, too, with specials available such as Greek chicken soup, or gochujang chicken pitta, alongside more familiar bar staples such as good old fish and chips and burgers.
