About Record Factory
Beer Garden, Cheap lunch
Nice staff, and the beer garden one of the best in the West End
Amazing burgers, best in the west end. Staff are great too.
West End music bar and kitchen
Billed as the West End’s only rock ‘n’ roll hangout, The Record Factory is a bar, kitchen, club and gig venue towards the Partick end of Byres Road. Club nights, bands at the weekends and late opening until 2am, seven nights a week, keep it lively. As well as a spacious beer garden, The Record Factory features booth seating, a pool table and more gig flyers than you can shake a drum stick at. Rock ‘n’ roll, indie, soul and blues make up the play list.
The kitchen is run by the Meathammer catering crew, the winners of Glasgow’s Best Burger 2014. They serve dishes such as bubble ‘n’ squeak, mac cheese or a burnt pineapple and blue cheese salad. However, the star of the show is the award-winning burger selection.
Cooked fresh to order, the 6oz patties are served on handmade custom brioche buns with triple-cooked chips. The range changes but a typical choice might be the Great White Buffalo Burger topped with smoked bacon, stilton, grilled red onion, little gem, tomato, red onion marmalade, garlic mayo and a Jack Daniels bourbon glaze.
Often towering six inches or more high, Meathammer’s inventions are considered by many to be among the most innovative of Glasgow’s wide and varied burger offerings.
