The final preparations are being made to open a new ‘granny chic’ cafe/bar/restaurant called Finsbay on Milngavie’s Main Street.

Finsbay, which replaces Meet Me @ The Corner, is due to open on Saturday, August 27.

Billy Milligan from Bearsden, one of the two directors, has over 18 years of bar/restaurant industry experience and has worked for two of Scotland’s biggest leisure companies - G1 group and Buzzworks.

He also currently owns The Pacific tiki bar in the west end of Glasgow and is a coach and player of the local rugby team West of Scotland.

The other owner, also local, is former Scotland and Glasgow Warriors captain Al Kellock.

Jan the manager comes with a wealth of experience most recently managing the two successful venues Brunswick Hotel and Brutti Compadres in Glasgow city centre. Jan’s ‘crazy’ personality is unforgettable and will always ensure

you leave smiling.

And their cocktail maestro Rob Williams has spent the last 10 years plying his trade in bars such as Blythswood hotel, Tiki bar and various well known bars throughout Australaisia. Rob plans to create a foraging based menu to give a nod to Scotland and their close proximity to the start of the West Highland Way.

The interior of the restaurant has undergone a lengthy back-to-brick renovation which combines elements of the building’s original cinema charm with the ‘granny chic’ concept.

The 70s design will give a comfortable and relaxed feel and the pieces of design, artwork and furniture people will relate to.

The team looks forward to welcoming you!
