Our track ‘Clyde’ has directions from our neighbourhood (Dennistoun) to this place. It’s been open for over 30 years and I don’t lie to you when I say the top five meals I’ve ever had anywhere in the world, three of them are probably from here. Home style Pakistani food so consistently incredible that you question who you are and what you are doing with your life.

Yadgar, 148 Calder St, Glasgow, G42 7QP

Kelvingrove Cafe

Our friend is the creative director of this little place, he’s a global ambassador for a whiskey company and has his finger on the pulse of bar culture, so it’s the place to go for what’s hot in drankin’. A great pre-club spot.

I used to be the music programmer for this place and still love coming back to it and see it going from strength to strength. The Poetry Club is this trippy little curated events space designed by Jim Lambie; a bar, venue and ever-evolving piece of art in itself.

100 Eastvale Pl, Glasgow G3 8QG

Mono Cafe Bar

The best record shop in town inside the best vegan restaurant in the UK.. You heard!

10-12 King’s Court, Glasgow, G1 5RB
