'Food and a laugh - what's not to like?'
Karen Gurney - 10/08/2014
We have enjoyed this deal before and thought it would be an enjoyable night out for friends visiting from Aberdeen. We were not wrong. It was different to our first experience, as there are two shows on Saturdays, meaning we took our food in the upstairs bar. The food and service were great but we were a wee bit rushed to get down to the show because the bar was so busy. No great problem and the staff kindly reserved us a table (right by the stage!). The food was more than we could eat, the same as was being offered to others and our visitors commented that is not always the case when on a deal. The quality of the acts was great and the ambience perfect. We would certainly use this excellent value evening out again. Thanks.
'Great food '

Great food, friendly staff. Comedy club not so good
Retro-style bar in Glasgow city centre
Vespbar is a city centre bar that mixes classic Italian cuisine and 60s mod style. The atmosphere is both vibrant and chilled and has a mixed crowd of diners and drinkers.
At the weekends, its retro jukebox and resident DJ transform the vibe into that of a bustling dancehall. Nowhere else in Glasgow can transport you back to swinging 60s and old Italy at the same time.
Pizza by the metre
Vespbar’s pizzas are very popular and come with a twist; all pizzas are available by the metre or half metre. All stone baked, the pizzas are available with a variety of toppings from gourmet chicken, tender pieces of chicken breast sliced onto traditional ragu with shredded mozzarella, to picante sausage, specially selected spicy artisan Italian sausage.
If you are going for drinks and only fancy a bite, there are a number of sharing boards and slider burgers for groups to enjoy. Particularly popular is the Vespbar meat slider – 3 2oz hand made beef patties served on individual baps with traditional garnishes, served with dipping sauces and topped with bacon and mozzarella, blue cheese and onion.
Vespbar’s menu also features a wide range of other Italian dishes like risotto and pasta as well as a mozzarella salad bar for the more healthy among us.
Close to Central train station
Vespbar is a couple of minutes walk from Glasgow Central train station and only a five minute walk from both Buchanan Street and St Enoch’s subway stations. There are numerous bus links nearby and a taxi rank outside Central station. There is a car park on nearby Mitchell Street.
