A new cocktail bar inspired by the Mediterranean island of Majorca is now open in Glasgow’s West End.

The team behind Hinba Coffee Roasters had partnered up with neighbouring restaurant Eighty Eight to open new venture Eighty Six on Dumbarton Road.

Eighty Six, which is located in Hinba, will transform from a coffee shop during the day to a cocktail bar at night, from 6 pm until midnight from Wednesday to Sunday.

Fergus McCoss and Ness Achilles, owners of Hinba, wanted to recreate the relaxed after-hours atmosphere they experienced during the five years they lived in Palma.

Iain Welsh, the expert mixologist at celebrated restaurant Eighty Eight, crafted a cocktail list for the collaboration that references Hinba’s paired-back daytime coffee offering.

The cocktail menu has nine drinks on it, including a pistachio sour, a champagne spritz, and a spiced paloma.

Fergus said: “Most of the coffee shops in Palma turn into bars at night.

“The transition was always seamless - the relaxed daytime atmosphere really helped set the tone for a chilled night.

“I knew it was a concept I wanted to bring to Hinba. “I think it will be really well received, especially in the west end.

“We’re the only venue in the area to be offering a coffee-to-cocktail experience like this.

“We want to be a place that people can enjoy at any time of the day.”

He added: “Partick is regenerating, and we want to be at the heart of that.

“Having the support from our friends at Eighty Eight has been amazing.

“From the minute we opened Hinba in April, the team next door has wanted to help in any way they can.

“Their expertise is priceless, and we’re really excited to be working with Iain to offer a cocktail menu that reflects us.

“Ness and I were inspired to venture into the world of coffee and hospitality because of the sense of community it creates.

“We want to share that ambition with the people who live on our doorstep. Eighty Six is the perfect place to watch that grow.”

The 30-capacity bar is now open for walk-ins and bookings.
