New opening for Maryhill – The Botany

What was The Strathmore in Maryhill will now be called The Botany with not only a new name but new owners.  Alan Tomkins is the man behind Glasgow foodie favourites Urban Bar & Brasserie, Vroni’s Wine Bar and Blue Dog, and he is working alongside business partner Calum Lawson to launch the site.

Alan Tomkins said: “This is a very exciting time for Glasgow. Having worked in hospitality for as long as I can remember, I’ve seen the city change and develop its attitudes towards food and drink. Options used to be very limited. Now, Glasgow’s a haven for foodies.

“The transformation of Finnieston came because of a few anchor venues offering spectacular food and drink. Calum and I both believe we can lead a similar sea-change in Maryhill and North Kelvinside. Our aim is to not only to maintain a local institution but to attract customers from the West End, Bearsden and Milngavie. The delicious food, seasonal cocktails and fantastic atmosphere will add a lot to what’s already an up and coming area.”
