The 78 is an all-vegan café-bar known for its craft brews, DJ sets and cosy dive aesthetic.
Next to its sister establishments Mono, Stereo, The Old Hairdressers and The Flying Duck, this gloriously laid-back bar is something of an odd one out. It’s situated in the West End for one thing, just off Argyle Street in Finnieston, in the same premises Stereo inhabited years back before moving into town.
It’s vegan cuisine all the way, and delightfully done, at prices sometimes so low it feels like robbery. For proof, see the weekday burger and pint deal, or Dub n Grub Thursdays, when you can get a three-course feed for the price of a few pints.
With chunky wooden tables and mismatched vintage armchairs, an open kitchen hatch at one end of the room and an open fire at the other, the atmosphere is cosy and relaxed, as is the service.
The beer selection is extensive, with plenty of Williams Bros., Sam Smiths and other brews both on tap and in the fridge. There are DJs pretty every Friday and Saturday – while Sundays are all about live jazz.
