Abandon Ship Bar, Glasgow

The bar, restaurant and retail space will open on Mitchell Street next month, marrying independent retail, artwork and hospitality. Set over two floors, the interiors will feature striking, hand-drawn artwork. Drawing inspiration from traditional tattoo art and pop culture, the artwork plays homage to the brand's roots and provides the perfect urban setting for hanging out to eat and drink. From September 17th, guests can enjoy inventive small plates from their kitchen, as well as burgers, Southern-style wings, and craft brews. IG: @abandonshipbar
