Charitable restaurant Beat 6 to open new venue in Bearsden


Beat 6, a charitable restaurant from the team behind Six by Nico, has confirmed that it will be opening in Bearsden on April 21.

The restaurant’s profits will go directly to Beatson Cancer Charity, which supports cancer patients and their families who are being treated at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.

Restaurateur Nico Simeone, his wife Valentina and their family want to help Beatson Cancer Charity help others in the same way it helped them. Valentina is one of thousands of Scots who have benefited from the Beatson’s world-class treatment.

The 48-seat restaurant will invite customers to ‘Dine to Donate,’ and will offer a monthly rotating 4-course set menu as well as creating a private dining space for events and fundraising dinners.

Six by Nico and their customers have raised over £350,000 for Beatson Cancer Charity through a series of team events across their eleven locations in England, Scotland, and Ireland since 2021, with 100% of the proceeds from the Beat 6 brand going directly to Beatson Cancer Charity.

Nico Simeone from Sixco Group said, “We, like many others, have a special place in our hearts for the Beatson, and we will be eternally grateful for everything they do on a daily basis to help change the lives of those affected by cancer.

“Our new Bearden neighbourhood location will continue to raise vital funds for the charity and the staff to whom we owe so much, while also giving our team the opportunity to be a part of such an important cancer awareness journey. Our donations of over £350,000 to date are just the beginning, and Beat 6’s new home in Bearsden is one of the most exciting fundraising initiatives we’re ever been a part of.”

Martin Cawley, CEO of Beatson Cancer Charity, said, “We are so grateful to Nico Simeone and his fantastic team who have already raised an outstanding £350,000 for our charity following the success of the Beat 6 restaurant in the east end of Glasgow. The money raised through Beat 6 allows us to support so many cancer patients and their families across the west of Scotland. We are delighted about their decision to reopen Beat6 in Bearsden, bringing their unique concept to the hometown of Nico and his wife Valentina. The response during the restaurant’s first year of being open was exceptional and we are looking forward to seeing how the Bearsden community supports the restaurant when it opens in April.”
