Gin bar in Glasgow West End

Part of Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor, beGin opened on Byres Road towards the end of 2017. Staffed by hip mixologists, it is an on trend mix of exposed copper piping, filament bulbs and lots of gin. In fact, the bar stocks some 68 varieties of gin from all over the world and they are available as both classic and new cocktails or as a Perfect Serve – a double measure served with one of twelve mixers and 28 garnishes. Of course, craft beers and wines are also available.

Global bar food menu

The food menus at beGin are very flexible. Split into small bites and big bites, along with sharing boards and ice cream sundaes, the dishes offer a global pick and mix of contemporary bar food. BBQ chicken wings sit beside cheesy haggis nachos and German style spicy goulash soups. From spinach falafels to Aberdeen Angus beef via pulled Ayrshire pork, there are several variations on the burger.

The kitchen can rustle up a char grilled chicken Moroccan pitta bread or, closer to home, a salad made with Inverloch goat cheese. The ice cream sundaes can be stiffened with a selection of gin shots.
