Van Winkle number two opening on Glasgow’s Byres Road


McPhabbs Ltd is leasing what was formerly The Hill on Glasgow’s Byres Road from Star Pubs & Bars and will open a second Van Winkle bourbon bar on the site on the 24th of September, creating 10 jobs.


The original Van Winkle is on the Gallowgate opposite the Barrowland Ballroom.


Said Derek Mallon of McPhabbs Ltd,The last few months have been undoubtedly tough for the hospitality industry, so it feels very positive to be opening new premises, creating jobs and bringing something new to the food and drink scene in the west of the city.
There will of course be all the expected COVID-19 safety measures in place to keep our guests safe. We look forward to welcoming new faces to our west end bar on 24th September.”


Derek’s passion for bourbon blossomed when he travelled to Louisville, Kentucky in 2015 and he opened Wan Winkle on the Gallowgate in November 2017. Van Winkle also has its very own Bourbon Bible to help visitors find their perfect pour. This alphabetical anthology showcases the bar’s growing range of bourbons.
