What they say:

Bringing the spirit of the Southern states to the west of Glasgow. Bar Gumbo will be serving up the holy-trinity, as it’s known in Louisiana; great music, great food and great drinks. Soul food, from gumbo to chicken wings, cocktails, cold beer and live music from some of Scotland’s best bands, ranging from Jazz and Blues, to French HipHop and Reggae. Come and join us for some warm southern hospitality and escape the cold weather.

What we say:

Having opened just in time for Mardi Gras, Bar Gumbo is an ode to New Orleans. A banging roster of live jazz, blues and soul with make Gumbo a lively venue for a great night out. Bayou surroundings in this West End bar include swampy plants and shack-style features, while the jazz club element means exposed brickwork and vinyls. With a host of sensational Southern food and toxic cocktails on offer, you won't get Gaterade quite like this anywhere else in Glasgow.
