The Drugstore Social
Cafe and Deli
This quirky venue is a meeting of an early 20th-century drugstore with a 21st-century café and deli. The menu champions locally foraged and wild ingredients, and showcases deliciously healthy options.
The Drugstore Social opens at 9am each morning and offers various blends of coffee in addition to a choice of pastries and the likes of Loch Duchart salmon with sourdough, avocado and a poached egg. These are available to enjoy within the café or to take away for those on the go. At lunchtime, the menu changes to offer healthy dishes including flatbreads, skillet-roasted options and freshly prepared salads. As the afternoon turns to evening, The Drugstore Social transforms into a cocktail bar, with the knowledgeable and experienced bartenders serving up an impressive range of unique punches, revivers and cocktails, which are all made using homemade cordials and liqueurs, foraged garnishes and hand-carved ice. The wine list is equally wonderful and features 100-per-cent organic and biodynamic wine, including rare varieties and sparkling options. The list was carefully chosen in collaboration with wine partners Wood Winters Wines & Whiskies.
Despite only opening in September 2016, The Drugstore Social’s bespoke offering means it’s already thriving in Glasgow’s West End.
