The location of the central hub had been kept tightly under wraps until this morning when Glasgow Cocktail Week organiser Nicola Gemmell Moir was joined by bar staff from Flight Club and Lunar to announce the news with the installation of a 'giant Margarita glass'.

She said: “We’re so excited to introduce a brand new pop-up bar and events space in the stunning surroundings of Princes Square.

"A place where cocktail lovers can sit back, relax and try some of the city’s most innovative cocktails, right on their doorstep, it’s the start of a new era for Glasgow Cocktail Week."
