The menu features variations on classics with frozen margaritas, old fashioned and negronis, along with cocktails made with local sustainable brands such as Panther milk and Liquid oats – an innovative brand made with oat milk. There will also be artisan, Neapolitan-inspired pizza to complement the drinks and entertainment by local DJs curated by the Berkeley suite nightclub.

Adam Strang from Cocktail Collective said:

“We wanted to do something different to get the industry thinking about their carbon commitments and represent Glasgow hospitality. Sustainably conscious cocktails don’t need to be boring, if you stop and taste any of our cocktails, you’ll agree. We’re only open for a limited time, come and support us if you can.”

“We’re busy making plans to reopen the restaurant next month, same chefs, new name, foods from a different continent. We’re really excited to announce everything soon. In the meantime, we’re glad that we can enable the vision for THERE HAS TO BE pop up to happen with their sustainable takeover. ”
