I have liked Ben Kelly's design for many years, "Dry Bar" and the "Hacienda Fac51" in Manchester were classic and inspirational designs that still inspire, so I was delighted to discover a Ben Kelly Designed bar in Glasgow city centre.
We enjoyed friendly service this afternoon in the retro cool of an old Industrial space, an intimate size with high ceilings and metal and marble surfaces, splashes of colour, signature red pipe in the toilets and reminders of school floors (or 70's Supermarkets).
What was great was that the staff were polite and friendly, we had coffee and cake for two for £4.50 and .....was very nice.
The great thing about Dry Bar was that the vibe was cool AND friendly which is hard to pull off, they have it at Bar 10 also, one off designs are rare and there are no clichés, the edges have frayed but it is real.
I am 41 and took my 20 year old niece and we both felt comfortable so I hope you can go and enjoy, feel comfortable, soak in the design, you are not in themed bar but a place to relax and enjoy food and drink in Urban Style.
