Nestled up in the rafters, high above all the bustle of Cafe Gandolfi, sits its wee sister bar and a buzzing little Merchant City hideaway. An offshoot of restaurateur Seumus MacInnes' growing empire, Bar Gandolfi is a not-so-hidden gem in Glasgow's nightlife. Offering the same great food and carefully selected wines as downstairs, the bar offers a more casual, city bar feel.

A beautifully crafted wooden bar contrasts with steel beams and old butcher shop style tiling. This is a great choice of venue for an intimate dinner with friends, lively date night, or a wine-filled long lunch. On the plates are daily specials along with staples of seafood, pasta and salad. An enticing choice of whiskeys greet you behind the bar, while the wine list is lovingly chosen by the Cafe Gandolfi Wine Club each month. The chatter of drinkers and diners creates the mood but regular appearances from local acoustic musicians and Tuesday night quiz nights injects added atmosphere.
