This years Section 33 pop up restaurant is being held for 5 nights in the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall’s, Argyle Street, Glasgow. Launching last year with a pop up restaurant in Govanhill Baths, Section-33 is headed by Kyle Steel.

Last years event raised £2000 for the Govanhill Baths restoration appeal.
St Louis Cafe Bar can be found at 734 Dumbarton Road, by the Thornwood roundabout and is a great neighbourhood bar. My friend Emma and I strolled in here one Sunday afternoon looking for a quick bar snack and were immediately impressed by the warm atmosphere.
