THE BARR FAMILY
BIER HALLE/THE LOCALE, GLASGOW

Josh Barr has recently followed in father Colin’s footsteps by opening The Locale on Glasgow’s North Street which, while Josh’s baby, is still part of father Colin’s Bier Halle family. Josh is leasing the unit from Fergus McVicar and he has created a venue that embraces a neighbourhood bar meets American dive bars and Spanish locales. Said Colin, “We have been working together for 20 years and we never conflict, and in that time he’s earned my respect. It’s a mutual respect. There was a time when I stubbornly made all the decisions off the cuff and at the same time had nobody to bounce ideas off of, but now I won’t do anything without running it past Josh, and vice versa. I’m not the one who knows everything – but I do know everything.”
