Stravaigin digs deep with new events space

NEW York cocktails and late-night dining were the inspiration for the redesigned and relaunched downstairs space at Glasgow institution Stravaigin.

The Cellar reopened as a cocktail bar, dining and events space last Friday (29th October).

Stravaigin owners Colin Clydesdale and Carol Wright, who also own the Ubiquitous Chip and the Hanoi Bike Shop, said they wanted to bring “destination private dining” to Glasgow’s west end. Head chef James MacRae has devised menus for a number of different occasions, including a party menu, festive menu, three-course seasonal menu and six-course tasting menu.

As well as private dining, the “flexible and versatile” space will host the Cellar Sessions live music.

Carol said creating the new-look space was a “passion project”.

“We love hosting events but weren’t able to for so long – it’s given us plenty of time to create the perfect space for destination private dining,” she said.

“We want to provide a space where people can escape from the world and enjoy vibrant events, interesting company, and showcase our incredible, locally-sourced food and drink.”
