On- Site Restaurant
Our approach to cooking is typically no-nonsense; we source the finest ingredients like 28-day hung Scotch beef and seafoods from local waters, add a little flair and influence from the Auld Alliance and simply let the food do the talking. We think you’ll love the Bo’Vine difference!
Bobar, 385 Byres Road, Glasgow, G12 8AU
BoBar is Bo'Vine's rather cool neighbour. Since it opened, the bar has become a firm favourite throughout the week drawing an after-work crowd who are into having a cocktail or two in relaxed, stylish surroundings.The spirits gallery is more than a match for the bartenders' skills but, if you simply fancy a bottle of quality imported beer, you'll not go thirsty either.
