Now under new management, Moskito is set to reopen in July, with a bold new look.

Following extensive renovation work and significant investment, the new Moskito Bar & Kitchen will offer 'globally inspired food with attitude’ and bespoke cocktail creations that are unavailable anywhere else in the UK.

More food led than in the past, Mosikto will offer brunch, lunch and dinner as well as the late night drinks it became known for.

Small sharing plates with a global influence are on the menu, as well as a an imaginative cocktail list.

The basement bar area and outdoor spaces have all had a refresh with the neon sign 'if these walls could talk' - a nod to the late nights enjoyed by customers over the decades of popularity it enjoyed before closure.

General manager Ben McLeod said: “The pandemic was devastating for so many sectors but especially hospitality, but as an industry we have shown our innovation and resilience and it's now time to breathe life back into our bars and restaurants.

"We weren't able to open as planned in 2020 however we have used this time to really refine, hone and curate every element of the new Moskito Bar & Kitchen to the very last detail.

“From the interiors, to the music, the cocktail list and the discreet and chic private event space there is no detail that has been overlooked when transforming the ‘old Moskito’ into a new day to late night food and drink venue.

“We are absolutely buzzing to reveal the new Moskito Bar & Kitchen to the Glasgow market this July and can confidently say people will be wowed as there is nothing quite like it in the city.”
