Mono photo


A sweet-as-they-come Merchant City bar, cafe and venue, Mono feels like the kind of youth club we all dreamed of in our teens. A glass atrium over the cafe creates an almost church like, folky feel to the space, while haphazard bunting, mis-matched furniture and an assortment of foosball and ping pong tables only adding to the church hall vibes. 

Cool and quirky kids are drawn to this place by the tasty vegan menu and an in-house record store, even Biker Grove would be jealous of. Like its wee sis venues Stereo and The Old Hairdresser's, the bar at Mono serves up the usual choices, along with organic wines and beers plus some homemade lemonades, and the odd DIY ale too. A jammed programme of live music, events and exhibitions supports local and national artists and makes for a truly community spirit in this warm, friendly, chilled out space.

Mono - Bar Review

Mono is one of the go-to spots for tasty vegetarian and vegan food in Glasgow, but don’t take our word for it – they’ve been voted best restaurant at the UK VegFest awards for the past two years. With that in mind, we headed down...

My brother's band played here a few months back, I'd never been in there before but it's really lovely, such nice people and just a friendly atmosphere overall. Would recommend.

I've only been here for food but I love that they have a specifically vegan menu. There's a real lack of vegetarian/vegan places in Glasgow and it looks like Mono recognised that. The Hillhead Bookclub of the East End (kinda!) for sure.

Fun vibe in here on the saturday night I went. Got involved with some ping pong (and plenty of drinking!) A good place to know for some weekend fun
