Situated opposite the historic Mackintosh building is the Vic Café & Bar, affectionately know as the Vic. The building opened in 1927 as a textile studio for the Glasgow School or Art, before being converted into a café using the remnants of the original Victoria Café in Glasgow Southside, including the old wood-panels for the interior, the seating and the original stained-glass windows. The vitreous marble signage was reinstated at the café in 2014. 

Continuing the legacy of its Scottish and Italian heritage, the café serves handmade pizza and burgers, in addition to an extensive contemporary menu that’s both eclectic and affordable. The new menu showcases options from around the world, including some adventurous Asian-inspired dishes. All food is freshly prepared in-house. Aware of the needs of the modern diner, there are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, and the menu is complemented by a list of daily specials. The bar serves a wide range of international spirits, stocks a hand-picked choice of wine and also offers beer from local breweries such as West, Williams Brothers, Drygate and Cromarty. 

The Vic Café & Bar is part of The Art School, a unique centre for music and visual arts, which forms part of the city’s cultural identity. It is also home to a number of galleries, hosts a lively programme of gigs and clubs in the performance spaces, and operates as a charity with all profits generated used to fund student activities and charitable aims.
