Five March presents ‘Go Sangatsu’ takeover
SWG3’s Acid Bar is ready to re-open again after 18 months with a brand new residency courtesy of Elderslie Street‘s Five March. Specialising in sharing plates, just like Five March, but with inspiration from Japan, ‘Go Sangatsu’ (meaning quite simply ‘Five March’ in Japanese) opens to the public this Friday September 3rd and will focus on vibrancy, balance and quality ingredients.
Joanna Nethery, Co-Owner of Five March, said:“We have a real love and respect for Japanese cuisine and as we sadly lack the generations of knowledge required to pay suitable homage, we won’t be offering a traditional menu but one inspired by foods we love. Through this new venture, we can see what happens when we take all that we do know and smash it into the Five March style. Go Sangatsu leans towards the experimental so we can’t think of a better venue for it than the iconic Acid Bar.”
Meryl Gilbert, Commercial Manager at SWG3, said: “We are so excited that the Acid Bar is finally reopening. In the past we’ve hosted some fantastic residencies lasting anything from three months to a year with some well established names, including Ka Pao, Ox & Finch, Madlab by Cail Bruich and Julie’s Kopitiam. Now, we’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Go Sangatsu as our first residency back after a year and a half.”
Being a place for not just food & drink, but also music and art, Acid Bar will also host Fromthestudio.art who will be showcasing a collection of work from some of Scotland’s most exciting contemporary artists. This will include a selection of painted photographs by David James Grinly from his two collections: Revival and Revolt. David’s projects take many years to complete, as he shies away from commercial approaches to artistic production and exhibition so this collection offers a rare opportunity to buy some of the reclusive artist’s work.
Go Sangatsu launches this Friday 3rd September, and will be open from 5pm – 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and 12 noon – 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
