Glasgow to see trilogy of new restaurants by Six By Nico in New Year


Six Company, the company behind the Six by Nico restaurants, has announced development and investment plans for its hometown of Glasgow, including the launch of three new venues across the city.

Chief executive and founder Nico Simeone of Six Company, the company behind the Six by Nico restaurants, has confirmed three new Glasgow openings and a £3m investment into the city’s restaurant scene.

It includes a new flagship Six by Nico in the Merchant City which is due to open on January 15th on Albion Street.

The existing Finnieston Six by Nico will close the day before, on January 14th, as it gets ready to launch a new concept in February, called Sole Club . All bookings from the Finnieston location will transfer to the new flagship City Centre location.

Sole Club pays homage to the original creative that kick started the Six by Nico journey, ‘The Chippie’, where it will bring together two concepts in the one venue. One side will host a chippie takeaway, blending traditional favourites with the team’s culinary expertise to offer new twists on the traditional takeaway. The other side of Sole Club’s concept is a one-of-a-kind 22-seat speakeasy-style fish restaurant using the best Scottish ingredients.

Not to be left out, Byres Road will also see investment in the first quarter of 2024 with the introduction of Somewhere by Nico – a cocktail bar that aims to combine multisensory, mixology and storytelling. Influenced by Six by Nico, Somewhere will look to create a six stage cocktail experience every six weeks, inspired by a ‘themed world’ that will become Somewhere during that time. Somewhere by Nico will offer what is believed to be Scotland’s first ever cocktail tasting experience with paired dishes and will also open in February 2024 at 358 Byres Road.

Six Company Chief Executive and founder Nico Simeone said, “Our team is driven daily by the challenge to constantly create and reinvent. We are dedicated to being different, never resting on our laurels, and continuously striving to create the best customer experiences. Marking our six-year journey with such a significant evolution of experiences in our home town and reaffirming our commitments to the city seems like the best way to celebrate the next stage in our company vision.“

Since launching their first restaurant in 2017 in their hometown of Glasgow, Six by Nico has served over 350,000 customers across the city’s locations in Finnieston, Byres Road and Glasgow Southside and 2 million dishes. The Six by Nico brand has created 49 tasting menus since the conceptual brands launch in Glasgow and raised over £700,000 in two years for the groups charity partner Beatson Cancer Charity.
