Returning to Glasgow after debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Section 33 are planning to transform one of the city’s buildings into a hip, New York style pop-up restaurant and bar for five days next month.

The city centre location for the new pop-up is still being kept under wraps but the team behind Section33 say it will offer a completely unique dining experience with high-end food served in a cool, urban setting at affordable prices.

The idea is the brainchild of restaurateur Kyle Steel, who is aiming to bring high-end quality food to a generation unimpressed by what he describes as “starched table linens and silver cutlery”, while at the same time donating a share of their profits to people in need around Glasgow.

Kyle said: “We aim to pay homage to the heritage of the venue and this time we have decided to showcase a huge variety of up and coming unsigned local musicians, this ties into the history of the venue perfectly. As it’s Hallowe’en week there’ll definitely be some seasonal surprises in store.”

Keen to pay homage to the time of year, Kyle also added the event will have a Halloween theme, saying that they intend to show the “original 1922 silent horror film Nosferatu” complete with an “accompanying orchestra”.

Section 33 confirmed that the style of food for the pop-up will be very street food orientated and specialize in three particular styles; South American, Asian, and Scottish.

The à la carte menu will consist of 15 dishes to choose from, with the menu designed with a tapas style focus on sharing, where two to three dishes are recommended per person.

Tickets are already selling fast for the restaurant, which will open from Wednesday 2nd –Sunday 6th of November. Priced at £5 per person, tickets include a very special arrival cocktail created by Glasgow’s own “unorthodox drinks producer” Rapscallion_etc and can be purchased here.

Explaining where he got the name for the pop-up from, Kyle said: “Section 33 used to be an occasional licence for selling alcohol at short-term and outdoor events but it is also an eviction notice you get from the Council if you’re going to lose your home.

“A big part of this pop-up is to give back to the community and support Glasgow’s homeless population and families in need. My Gran used to always ask when I was going to get a real job, or a trade, I feel by giving back to the local community and those who are going through a challenging time makes everything we do much more

“My Gran used to always ask when I was going to get a real job, or a trade, I feel by giving back to the local community and those who are going through a challenging time makes everything we do much more worthwhile.

“After the event we’re looking into various options to ensure we’re feeding as many people in need as possible, we’re also running a rucksack collection for The Simon Community, and finally donating to the restoration fund of the incredible venue we’re taking over for a week.

“We want to continue to offer a dining experience unlike anything the city has seen before. I’m passionate about presenting great food, contemporary cocktails and live up and coming musicians, within breath-taking venues.”To find out more or book tickets http://section33.bigcartel.com/followon Twitter www.twitter.com/section33/Like on Facebook www.facebook.com/section33
