Old Dog New Tricks
Blue Dog Glasgow, winner of Cocktail Bar of the Year at the Scottish Bar and Pub Awards for the past two years, has announced plans to expand its West George Street venue.
A downstairs storeroom and office space is being renovated to make way for new bar Down Dog, which will have a capacity of around 70.
Manager Matthew Ronald told DRAM, “Space has always been a premium so we’ve been looking to do this for years. It’s essentially another extension to Blue Dog with the same cool vibe but different design.”
The bar has teamed up with architect Michael Dunn of Design, Build, Deliver (DBD) who originally worked on Blue Dog. Down Dog will offer the same cocktail menu, and a reduced draught beer and spirit selection.
It will open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and will be available to hire for private functions. The new bar will open this month.
