Tried our Oyster Happy Hour yet?
Since three of our favourite things are summer, oysters and cocktails, we've gone and launched Glasgow's only #OysterHappyHour every Friday in The 158 Café Bar at Hutchesons.
You can join us between 5-7pm, every Friday for £1 oysters and if you have that Friday feeling you can partake in a couple of refreshing cocktails to wash them down. Fresh Cumbrae oysters on ice, a splash of Tabasco and a cold martini on the side...
To celebrate the launch of our summer drinks, we have six selected Signature Cocktails that are available for £5, Sunday through to Friday. Just look out for the # on our menus, or ask our bartenders to help you choose. Read more about cocktails here
