Welcome to Van Winkle, we look forward to serving you. We’ve sampled food all across the USA but our heart fell in love with the taste of classic BBQ & Grill dishes from Kentucky. Comfort food for the soul and incredible flavours.

Serving the largest selection of Bourbons in Scotland along with an awesome array of beers & the classic tipples for those who prefer staying at home when they’re out.

All our food is locally sourced, using on the highest quality products and prepared fresh, in house at Van Winkle.

We're in a great location in the Gallowgate opposite the Barrowland Ballroom. Easy access from the City Centre or the East End. If you're heading to the Barrowlands, then we're ideal for a pre/ post visit, too.

A nice bar with friendly and attentive service from the start. The food was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. I will definitely be back again.

We booked a table online for 8:45 and arrived early to find that they had finished serving food. I would ring up about booking a table as they were unaware we were supposed to be arriving.

Saint Lukes across the road was a lovely recommendation from them though.

Plus she loved all the attention.

Unfortunately I can't give this place 5 stars, much as I'd like to, because we received the wrong order and had to wait 1 hr for our food order and the toilets weren't the greatest.

Okay, now onto the good stuff. Very good location as it's right across the road from the Barrowlands and St Lukes (you do need to look out for it though as it doesn't stand out and I'd never seen it before last week). We really liked this place and will be back. The drinks menu was excellent. Good choice of cocktails and very reasonably priced. The food menu was good but did take a while to get to us, which wasn't a huge issue as the atmosphere and music meant it didn't feel that bad. We went for the 3 small dishes for £10 and ordered all 6 dishes between 2 plus a chicken burger for my friend. This was a good call. Perfect portion sizes for sharing and was certainly enough for us. my only moan there was that the deep fried hallumi was a tad on the greasy side but we still ate it and it was delicious.

We will be back for our next gig at St Lukes so would definately recommend it.

Great place for some good pub food! Or a few drinks before a gig at the Barrowlands and St Lukes.

Terrible. Told kitchen was closed after reserving. Place was overrun. Won’t go back.
