SWG3’s Acid Bar to re-open this week after 18 months with new Five March residency

Glasgow’s SWG3 will re-open its Acid Bar on Friday 3rd September complete with a brand new takeover from city west end restaurant Five March called Go Sangatsu.
Five March is owned by Joanna Nethery and Peter Mackay – who is also the restaurant’s head chef.
Joanna said,  “We have a real love and respect for Japanese cuisine and as we sadly lack the generations of knowledge required to pay suitable homage, we won’t be offering a traditional menu but one inspired by foods we love. Through this new venture, we can see what happens when we take all that we do know and smash it into the Five March style. Go Sangatsu leans towards the experimental so we can’t think of a better venue for it than the iconic Acid Bar.”


SWG3’s Commercial Manager Meryl Gilbert said, “We are so excited that the Acid Bar is finally reopening. In the past we’ve hosted some fantastic residencies lasting anything from three months to a year with some well established names, including Ka Pao, Ox & Finch, Madlab by Cail Bruich and Julie’s Kopitiam. Now, we’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Go Sangatsu as our first residency back after a year and a half.”


The Acid Bar faces onto SWG3’s Yard space which features an urban arts gallery for the graffiti and street art community and Go Sangatsu will be open from 3rd September, from 5pm Thursday and Fridays, and 12pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
