Lebowskis West End West End, Glasgow

British, Modern, Bar Food, Gastro Pub, Burgers, BBQ

The first of three - and counting - Lebowskis bars, this original Argyle Street outlet opened in 2017. It could be argued that Lebowskis helped kick start the surrounding Finnieston area as one of Glasgow's most fashionable neighbourhoods for eating and drinking. From the drinks menu to the bowling skittles, the quirky spirit of the film which inspired the bar is evident throughout. Expect a decor which is stripped back but comfortable. Outside seating and Lebowskis' signature range of White Russian cocktails are among the attractions.

    Excellent food

    Enjoyed the excellent food on the offer and not disappointed in the portion or presentation. Service was good and friendly staff. We've dined here a number of times and would always return as it's one of the best in the area. My only criticism is the overpowering smell of the candle/incense that was lit while we were eating.

    Afternoon Tea at Chez Mal

    The experience was superb. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. A doggy bag was provided to take home the leftovers. There was an amazing variety of food. The service could not be faulted. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff went above and beyond. A special cocktail was given to the “birthday girl”. We will definitely be back.
