Glasgow’s Sub Club director Mike Grieve will open a 120-seater rooftop pop-up bar and restaurant called RoofSpace later this month in The Schoolhouse, an office building at 101 Portman Street, Kinning Park.
He’s installed a new bar and bespoke furniture and has been granted a licence until March 2022, with food being supplied by Japanese restaurant Ramen Dayo. Sub Club has an office in the building and the rooftop had previously been used for events.
Mike told DRAM, “It’s got a unique view across the Kingsgton Bridge and motorway intersection of the M8 and M74 and the city skyline too of course. It was formerly a girls playground from Victorian times right up until the ‘60s.
“We have been running test events with friends of the club and family so that we get all functionality right and so far so good.
“We did parties and events n summer of 2019 so some people will be familiar with the space, but with Covid restrictions, we applied for a licence for pop-up bar and food operation rather than continue to use it as an events space.”
