It’s the Chinese Year of the Pig and there’s a little pig in Glasgow’s west end. The Little Pig happens to be the English translation of ‘Le Petit Cochron’, Radnor Street’s newest bar and eaterie.
Lessee Emma Oates called time on her pop-up ‘Off Piste’ and re-opened last month with a new look as well as the new name.
Emma told DRAM, “There’s nothing deep and meaningful behind the new name. I just liked it.”
She continued, “I always wanted a wine bar and I’m offering customers 50 wines by the glass.”
Several structural changes were also made, the biggest of which involved the bar shifting from the annex to the right (as you enter) to the main part of the bar.
Explained Emma, “It was more of a dispensing bar before whereas it’s now far more of a feature. I also painted the bar’s interior blue to replace all of the grey, which is a lot warmer and cosier at night.”
She continued, “The side area where the bar used to be will eventually become a private dining room once we add some separators.”
