Better watch out for the Inn Deep

That bar underneath the Kelvin Bridge with the tables outside, last known as the Big Blue … I always thought it was a great location, but never went there. In its new incarnation, I’ll probably go there a fair bit.

Yesterday this was what the premises by the river Kelvin looked like. By tonight, promise the new management, it will be open for business as Glasgow’s newest speciality beer bar, “Inn Deep”.

The younger generation of the Williams Bros family are running the show and they’ll be stocking the bar with indie beers in cask and keg from the likes of Fyne, Tempest and Cromarty, with the house beers of course coming from Williams Bros.

It would seem an inauspicious time to launch a new beer bar just weeks after the sudden closure of Bruadar, but Chris Williams is not worried. The Partick location had its own disadvantages which don’t apply here, he says.

It adds another specialist establishment to the cluster of excellent independent booze outlets at Kelvinbridge: the old-school “brewer’s Tudor” pub The Doublet and the off-licences The Cave and Quel Vin.

You can judge for yourself from 5pm today.

Priorities: get the logo on the speakers
