Kelvingrove Cafe

Restaurant Bar

Description

Once a Victorian ice-cream parlour, the Kelvingrove Cafe is now one of the chicest and most stylish restaurant-bars to be revived in Glasgow's West End in recent years.  The original shabby frontage and sign of this Argyle Street bar remain intact and contrast perfectly with the redecorated interior with exposed brick walls, monochrome tiles, leather booths and a huge brass bar.

The menu is split into small, medium and large plates so you can choose the perfect size for whatever way you're feeling. Dishes such as Rockafella Skink, roasted fillet of Scotch beef, salted beef mac and cheese and churros are just some of the delights guaranteed to get your mouth watering. To accompany the delicious food, the cafe serves up a vast range of spirits and drafts as well as a premier selection of amaros, bitters and vermouths. These guys taking drinking seriously, and make huge blocks of ice in-house which are portioned up using 14-inch Japanese ice saws (!) which chill the drink without diluting it, creating a more ‘pure’ beverage. 

The very definition of cool, this Glasgow cafe bar is a mix of grown-up, whimsical and well-travelled, with vintage feel that takes you away from Argyle Street.

Kelvingrove Cafe - Cocktail Bar Review

Kelvingrove Cafe - Cocktail Bar Review

It’s old news that Glasgow’s Finnieston area is one of the city’s go-to spots for quirky cocktail bars and the Kelvingrove Café fits in perfectly. You’ve probably walked past the beautifully restored vintage exterior and wondered what was inside – or if it was abandoned…
