102-106 Argyle Street,Glasgow, G3 7RX (Map)
Glasgow’s bar scene is upping its game and The Ivy Bar is typical of the city’s new cocktail energy and passion. It’s located on the west end of Argyle Street, occupying the space formerly held by 54 Below. Over the past two years Ivy has become one of the most impressive bars in the city with one the biggest selection of rums of any bar in Scotland. In 2007 Ivy received the Best New Bar award from the Theme Bar & Restaurant Magazine and has increased in popularity among drinkers ever since. These guys like their gin too, not surprising as General Manager Ervin Trykowski doubles up as Caorunn Gin’s Brand Ambassador. Great music nights and an innovative and interesting cocktail list make this a definite for Gintimers. There’s a great selection of Gintime gins including of course Caorunn, Beefeater 24, Plymouth and Martin Miller’s. Try the Angel Face – a blend of Caorunn, Somerset Cider Brandy and Bitter Truth Apricot Brandy or the equally delish Lady Violet with Creme De Violet, Lillet Blanc, Gomme and Bay Leaves.
