Who are we to resist opening a door with a question mark on it? It’s a riddle that deserves to be solved.
Inside we find an alluring pop-up playland. This mish-mash of odd tables and chairs, lamps and lights and an eclectic crowd –makes this cosy bar strangely welcoming.
We nestle into a table at the back, admire the evolving wall art and check out the extensive drinks board of cocktails playing tribute to different areas of Glasgow.
Overcome with choice – I start with a G&T. Hendricks appears to be their standard. I’m beginning to like this place more and more.
It’s all so casual, comfortable – kind of like you’re at a friend’s house party, the good kind. The sort with interesting people, good tunes and complimentary lighting. And it’s totally ok to write on the bathroom wall – in fact, it’s encouraged. Chalk provided for every would-be loo philosopher.
And if while you’re enjoying soulful sounds and electro 80s throw- back you begin to feel peckish, this pop-up party has a small tapas menu – including the dessert variety.
I’m not sure if Finnieston’s latest hangout is here to stay or merely treating us to a temporary tantalising time. All the more reason you need to get yourself down to 1116 Argyle.
Enjoy it while it last – we certainly will.
