Stravaigin owners Colin Clydesdale and Carol Wright, who also own the Ubiquitous Chip and the Hanoi Bike Shop, are excited to see large groups back at their venues, and they believe the Cellar at Stravaigin will be the perfect place to celebrate all occasions.

The relaxed private dining area in Glasgow’s West End opens today (Friday 29 October).

The flexible event space and cocktail bar is set to serve guests once again after a significant revamp which showcases an eclectic mural taking inspiration from global food culture.

Carol Wright said: “This has been a passion project for us. We love hosting events but weren’t able to for so long – it’s given us plenty of time to create the perfect space for destination private dining.

“Our mission is to Think Global and Eat (and drink) local. In creating this space, we looked to some of our favourite hidden cocktail bars for inspiration.

"We want to provide a space where people can escape from the world and enjoy vibrant events, interesting company, and showcase our incredible, locally sourced food and drink. It will certainly be a talking point.”

The venue is also set to welcome live musicians back downstairs, with the return of folk music sessions.

Head chef James MacRae has created special menus for The Cellar, with options to suit every occasion including a party menu, festive menu, a three-course seasonal menu and a six-course tasting menu.

Stravaigin, which was recently named as one of The 50 Best Gastropubs In The UK, is featured in this year’s Michelin Guide.
