New offerings at The Gallery Bar


The Gallery Bar in Glasgow has a new face at the helm in the form of Michael Robertson. Michael, who has been a stalwart in Glasgow’s hospitality scene for many years, aims to bring some fresh ideas to the wet-led Merchant City venue.

He says, “I have been a customer at The Gallery since around 2012 and love the venue. Owner Jim Young was looking to take a step back from the business, so we are now in a transitional period of him stepping back and me stepping forward. We won’t be changing much but I will using my experience to take it back to baseline hospitality – a warm welcome, some table service if the customer wants it, some more premium brands and a wee bit of attention to detail. It’s all been well received, and we have lots of regulars who support us.

“This bar has looked after the LGBTQ+ community for a long time now and will continue to do so, but it’s also important for me to be inclusive to everyone and create a space where they feel comfortable. If you treat people with kindness and respect, then we will go out of our way to take care of you here. It’s just a fun, vibrant venue.”
