Fabulous at McPhabbs
Michael Robertson has now got his feet firmly under the bar at McPhabbs in Glasgow’s Sandyford Place. He took on the lease of the bar recently, with the help of two partners, and has already given the function suite downstairs a fresh look and re-organised the menu.
Michael who has been GM at 29 for the past few years, previously worked in Tiger Tiger and The Living Room. Michael told DRAM. “The timing was just right. I really enjoyed working for the Mortimers at 29, but the time had come to open my own place.”
During January and February the bar ran a ‘50% off’ meal deal which attracted a lot of new customers. Michael explains, “We changed the menu and it seemed the right time to do a promotion to re-introduce the bar to locals. It has been really successful.”
He continues, “In the past McPhabbs may have been perceived as a sport-led pub, we are slowly changing this perception and making it more family-friendly and dog friendly too. It’s a neighbourhood bar, and we want people from this area to use it.”
McPhabbs is at 23 Sandyford Place, Glasgow.
