BARRAS Art and Design (BAaD), the bar, restaurant and events space in Glasgow’s east end, has spent the lockdown period revamping and rebranding its bar area ahead of reopening later this month.

Now branded as The Gypsy Taproom, the bar will have a focus on Scottish craft beers with 20 draught lines in rotation and over 100 bottles and cans in the fridges. The range will focus on “the best brewers in the west of Scotland and further afield”.

The food offer has also been overhauled, with a focus on slow-cooked, barbecued and grilled dishes and new smoker allowing the venue to smoke all of its own meats, fish and vegetables on-site.

In addition to the new-look interior the venue’s extended outdoor area will cater for more than 200 customers.

A spokeswoman for BAaD said: “In addition to our draught offering, The Gypsy Taproom will have over 100 packaged bottles or cans to choose from, from NEIPAs to DIPAs, porters to amber ales, saisons to sours or stouts to wheat beers, the choice is endless.

“The Gypsy Taproom also houses an outstanding spirits collection and home to some of the best mixologists in Glasgow – there is something for everybody to enjoy.”
