It’s the freakin’ weekend so here are some new bars and restaurants in Glasgow.

Way back in the mists of time – July to be exact – we blogged about Felson’s, a new cocktail lounge and ‘stick bar’ opening in Glasgow.

The new venue will open to the public on Renfield Street on Monday.

The ‘stick’ part of the description refers to the six pool tables on the premises. If dropping the eight ball into the far left isn’t your thing, there will also be a shuffleboard.

Craft beer, cocktails and a casual diner menu of burgers and so on will keep everyone smiling.

Meanwhile, over on Mitchell Street, the former Tunnel nightclub is about to have a new lease of life as Glasgow’s second Revolution bar. The original is on Renfield Street.

The Tunnel closed its doors back in 2014 but the premises will officially re-open tonight.

Set over two floors, the interior has been completely revamped. Guests can expect cocktails, an all day food menu and late nights – especially at the weekend.

New bars and restaurants in Glasgow

Moving to the Southside, Marchtown has joined 5pm Dining.
Launched in March 2017, it is a specialist wine and craft beer bar, shop and restaurant serving cheese, charcuterie and sharing plates.

As well as keeping people fed and watered, the Pollokshaws Road operation is also something of an arts and crafts hub.

The sharing boards take the starring role on the menu.

Featuring seasonal ingredients and served on beautiful handmade oak boards, they include fine cheeses, exquisite charcuterie, crostinis, breads and antipasti.

Naturally, as far as is possible, it is all sourced from local producers and suppliers.

The menus change regularly but the charcuterie board might include chorizo picante, lomo de bellota, salchichon, sobrasada, and the uber-classy Jamon Iberico Bellota, with breads, almonds, mixed olives, and preserves.

You can now book into Marchtown via 5pm Dining.

Keep checking back on the 5pm Dining blog for all the new bars and restaurants in Glasgow.

Have a sweeeeeeeet weekend.
