We're one of Time Out Glasgow's best bars in town... "The Arches café-bar is commensurately excellent, be it simply for a few pre-club drinks, or a refined but so-very-Glaswegian sit-down meal." We'll take that!

Its not like us to be open on a Sunday but as we're hosting Aberdeen quintet and (very likely) the only purveyors of Scottish Pirate Metal (Yes it is a thing!) in the main Event space we're open for food & drink throughout the day. Come and see us & we can exchange pirate jokes. 'Why are pirates called pirates?...'
