The Trading House is the latest bar and restaurant to open in Glasgow. Operated by the New World Trading Company, which was founded in 2011 by Tim Bacon and Jeremy Roberts of Living Ventures, also operates pubs including The Oast House and The Botanist. It is located in The Citizen building, the former Evening Citizen newspaper offices at 25 St Vincent Place. The 7,500sq ft bar and restaurant venue is the first of its kind outside of London.
The Grade A listed development, designed by Paul Danson Imagineering, features tall windows, traditional wood panelling and a feature staircase leading to a mezzanine seating area which overlooks the bar. Its quirky décor has been inspired by the spirit of the East India Trading Company. As well as the 140-cover, split-level restaurant, there is a private dining room accommodating up to 16 guests, and a dedicated beer tasting room complete with self-service taps.
