Description: The legendary 13th Note in Glasgow has been operating for more than 12 years and is known to many people for many reasons. It's the place you played your first gig, the place you watched your first gig, the place you discovered vegan food isn't all salad and tofu or maybe it's the place you feel most at home. If you've not yet visited us, what are you waiting on? Make The 13th Note your place! OUR BAR We have a large airy bar area as soon as you enter the building on King Street. Here, you can enjoy our vast range of drinks, including: draught lagers; bottled delights; cocktails; whiskies; bourbons; coffees and herbal teas. As we have a very much vegan culture, we have tried to ensure all of our products are suitable for vegans too. If you are feeling peckish, you can order food from our bar or restaurant menu until 9pm Sunday - Thursday or 7pm Friday & Saturday. The best thing about our bar is, you can bring along your best buddy. That's right, if you have a pooch, you can bring him or her along for some free treats, toys or even a lie down in a doggy bed!! We are one of the only Glasgow bars who are dog friendly, isn't that handy? +Complimentary reading materials+ +Free parking for bikes inside+ +Jukebox+ +Live DJ sets on selected nights+ +Foosball table+ OUR RESTAURANT Situated discreetly at the back of our main bar is the restaurant. Here, we offer a beautiful variety of vegetarian and vegan delights served in an attentive and friendly manner. Our restaurant is open from 12pm - 9pm daily and allows for children until 8pm. We accept bookings, both large and small, within our restaurant. To enquire and make a booking, please call or send us an email. OUR GALLERY As backdrop for our dining guests, we allow for artists to display an exhibition in the restaurant. We take absolutely no commission on any sales made, so if you're an artist looking for some exposure, get in touch with us! OUR VENUE In the deep dark dungeons of The 13th Note, lies our venue. Complete with its own bar, the venue plays host to some of the best music gigs, performances and events in Glasgow. We also hire our venue out at a very low cost, to get more information on this simply contact us.

“Absolutely aaaaamazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I am a Vegetarian and find certain restaurants lacking in options. However, step inside The 13th Note, you are welcomed like you are a close friend of all members of staff l. The Menu: full of aaaamazing options for vegans and vegetarians!!! And the cherry on top, came with my Fiancé and Mum (who are both avid meat eaters) they finally chose the veggie burger and falafel burger and proceeded to proclaim their love for each and every bite! Not only for non meat eaters!! One visit and you WILL be hooked!!! Oh and don't get me started on the desserts....♥♥♥

“Vegan food at the 13th note”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you ever visit Glasgow & you're vegan/vegetarian you must pay the 13th note a visit. Even if you're not,visit anyway!!! They have a great menu,very reasonably priced & great service. We have eaten here 4 or 5 times now & have had some of the best food we've ever eaten! Keep up the good work guys!!

“Gone downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Don't know if I'm just getting older, but my last visit here was very disappointing. The furniture is no longer shabby-chic and more disgustingly bad. I ordered a white wine, which was served warm, and tasted so bad that I couldn't take more than a few sips. We left very quickly, despite having enjoyed the pub in the past.

hospinspector, General Manager at 13th Note, responded to this review, September 15, 2013
Thank you very much for your review, I am very disppointed to hear that you did not enjoy your visit to the 13th Note on this occasion.

I have to agree with you the upholstery was in a condition which became unacceptable, thankfully just this week we have started to recover the seats in the bar, this is in progress as we speak and should be finished by the end of the month.

Again I am sorry to hear that you were served wine at the wrong temperature, I can only apologise for this and bring it to the attention of our staff. The wine we serve has been the same for many years as we are limited on the choice of good quality vegan wine at a resonable price but if its warm that is not right.

I would happily like to invite you back in for some 'cold' wine and a chance to apologise in person.

Hope we get to meet you and put right what was wrong

“Perfect and Hip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went with some of my friends at the weekend - service was fine but the real deal was the food and the atmosphere of the place - very studenty and the music is fantastic! would return again just for the jukebox!

“***Veggie paradise...!!!***”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A frequent visitor for many years, the 13th note always delights. They serve up a brilliantly varied menu and the food's always tasty and packed full of flavour. The rosemary salted chips are a must...!!! Great variety of beers, love it...!!!
