A wine bar and bistro, events venue and specialty food and drinks retailer.
The latest newcomer to the burgeoning bar/café scene in Strathbungo has a delightfully unique pitch. It’s a wine bar more than anything else, though ‘Global wine & Scottish craft beer bar to sit in or take away’ would be a more satisfactory (if less pithy) description. It also places it right up there as one of the best wine lists in this section. Some really interesting bottles line the shelves: Austrian reds, Australian Malbec, Spanish and Portuguese lesser-spotted varieties – and all for reasonable prices. By the glass they simply offer ‘red/rose/white’, which will change frequently. It’s neat and simple and – as owner Anthony Reynolds points out – the way it is when you pop into a wee place on holiday. Food consists of Spanish cold meats and/or cheeses from IJ Mellis. Two beer lines, champagne by the glass and service with knowledge and warmth seal the deal. Welcome to the neighbourhood.
