First look at new Abandon Ship Bar opening in Glasgow City Centre this week

By Carla Jenkins

Love Abandon Ship clothes? Love the Dundee bar? Well - you're in luck - the brains behind the brand are about to open their 'sensory explosion' of a bar in Glasgow.

Located in the heart of the city on Mitchell Street, the new Abandon Ship Bar has an eye-popping neon-lit frontage of the custom slogan ‘Not Everything Sucks’ sign guiding you into the bar.

The 3,500 square feet space has been designed by Scottish female designers Astrid Carleton and Amanda Davies to create a colourful laidback and comfortable space that gets tongues wagging.

With an 80 cover restaurant and bar, Abandon Ship Bar also has a cocktail and food menu with Americana 'soul-food' vibes.

You can take a wee sneak peak at the pictures here.

There’s an 80s Tron-inspired arcade entrance complete with an Abandon Ship photobooth and a designated Pickle Shack, where revellers can enjoy craft beer, great shots and browse Abandon Ship Apparel merchandise.

Set across two floors, the new restaurant, bar and retail concept is adorned with wall to wall street art by creative director, Richard Davies - boasting 'Instagram moments at every turn'.

Other features include a resin-top sticker bar paying homage to the brand's design highlights, pastel pink and aqua leather-backed booths and neon signs.

Later this year, the basement will be home to the ‘Fitting Room’ laden with cool stuff and the new home of Abandon Ship Apparel.

Creative director explains, Richard Davies said: “There is nothing quite like Abandon Ship Bar anywhere. If you love good times, great drinks and cool vibes come and join us as we launch in Glasgow.

"We’re always looking to innovate with the brand and our new concept is something that all of our team are really proud to be part of. We’ve put blood, sweat and tears into our opening and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve created.“

Abandon Ship Bar will open seven days a week from noon until 1 am from Friday, September 17th and is located at 43 Mitchell St, Glasgow G1 3LA
