Aye Caram-bar! Finnieston Continues to Flourish as Mexican Party Bar set to Launch This Week
Finnieston continues to flourish as Mexican party bar set to launch this week
The launch of Kained Holdings’ ninth venue, and fifth in Finnieston, is just days away. The Duchess of Argyle will start serving authentic Mexican streetfood, tequilas, mezcals, raicilla and so much more from Saturday (4 February) onwards.
To celebrate the opening, a mariachi band will take to the streets from 6pm and the first 100 lucky customers through the door will feast on £1 tacos.
The street food joint and party bar will open just a stone’s throw away from where Kained Holdings started its journey to transform Glasgow’s food and drink scene 10 years ago, at the original Lebowski’s.
Argyle Street’s latest foodie haven will further bolster Finnieston’s credentials as the UK’s hippest area. The venue joins Porter & Rye, The Finnieston and Lebowski’s on the popular Finnieston strip, with The Drugstore Social on nearby Old Dumbarton Road.
“The Duchess of Argyle will be different from anything else in the city”, said Kained Holdings MD, Graham Suttle.
“Imagine a traditional Victorian boozer transformed into a brash and accessible Mexican party bar. As with everything we do, it will surprise and delight our customers. Across our nine venues there is something for everyone. Here, customers can expect a fast-paced, intense environment.
“The Duchess of Argyle is perfect for foodies looking for a different experience from that of traditional restaurants. The food is fresh and authentic, while the drinks selection is of the highest quality.
“We’re not afraid to push boundaries. Finally, Finnieston has a real party bar!”
The former Scottish young chef of the year said: “We always strive to innovate. Glasgow has so many amazing restaurants to be proud of, but there are still some things it sorely lacks.
“Authentic traditional Mexican food hasn’t really been done in the city and we’re confident we’re the ones to do it right.
“The food speaks for itself, it couldn’t be further from the ‘Tex-Mex’ people have come to expect. “
As well as five venues in Finnieston, Kained Holdings also operates Lebowski’s units in Edinburgh and Glasgow’s southside, The Kelbourne Saint on Queen Margaret Drive and The Crafty Pig on Great Western Road. The new venue takes Kained’s employment in Finnieston to over 70 people, with more than 170 employees across the group in total.
Kained Holdings recently added Independent Multiple Operator of The Year for 2016 at the SLTN Awards to its long list of awards. The group currently supports a number of charitable organisations, including The Prince's Trust, Action for Children and Yes Chef. The group recently became an official partner of Glasgow Warriors.
The new restaurant opens on 1038 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8LX, https://www.facebook.com/theduchessofargyle/ For more information on Kained Holdings please visit http://www.kained-holdings.com/
