What bars are the best in Scotland?
The Upstairs Bar at Ubiquitous Chip in Glasgow, Malones Edinburgh, Vic St Andrews and Macgochans in Argyll and Bute were crowned regional winners for Scotland.
The National Pub & Bar Awards aims to put exemplary on-trade businesses across the UK in the national spotlight, showcasing the hospitality industry’s diversity, creativity and vital importance to the UK economy.
The pubs and bars, which were selected on overall best practice across a number of operational categories, were named at a red carpet celebration at 30 Euston Square on Wednesday, June 22.
“Just from being out in these venues, you can see how much pubs and bars mean to people across the UK,” said Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, which hosts the event.
