Pot Luck a place to eat in the village

Sadly No Way Back at 38 Nithsdale Road has now gone, the good news is, that as luck would have it, it has been replaced with a new informal and dog-friendly cafe/restaurant offering great looking and tasting imaginative food in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

Serious food and low prices, what's not to like?

The Irish pub, previously known as the Elcho Bar was built on the site of Granny McDougall's inn, which was also known as the Robert Burn Tavern dating back to the time when the village's original 'land' buildings constructed on top of the old burn when it was covered over in 1849.

BBCSicks Music Festival in Strathbungo!

As part of the BBCSicks music festival, the legend that is Paddy Steer returns to Glasgow and this time visits Strathbungo's Jamaican themed bar the Rum Shack's downstairs 'Dancehall'.

We're told that he is part cosmic, part afrobeat, 100% mutantturbojazzpunkdisco It's hard to put Paddy Steer's live shows into words. One thing's for sure, they're different from his studio recordings - they're a lot more energetic, freestyle and definitely aimed at those who might feel the urge to suddenly dance uncontrollably.

Also on board for the ride we're happy to have Ewan Chambers spin some records for us. Ewan runs the Healthy nights at Glasgow's Berkeley Suite where we've lately seen a spate of great guest DJs: Joakim, Daniel Wang B2B Eric Duncan, Rebolledo, Tama Sumo, Justin VanDerVolgen and more.

GK Machine stamps the Invisible Inc seal of approval on the remainder of the night.

Entry is £5*

*a percentage of the takings will be donated to the great Edinburgh Direct Aid charity. Ran by volunteers EDA was one of the first charitable organisations to send aid and personnel to Syria at the start of the civil war. You can read more about them and what they do here:

Marchtown Comes Home to the Village

An exciting new off-licence drinks retailer, wine & beer bar, and events and activities venue opened in the village on 16th March 2017. Marchtown is the legal name given by the owners Maxwell family of Nether Pollok to the land in which Strathbungo now stands. The name reflects the fact that the village was located on the border of Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire.  March meaning border. Although the border has long since been redrawn but if you walk down March Street in the village, you can still see the Monogram of Renfrewshire County Council 'RCC' on the building which was once the Renfrewshire Police Station.

The people who brought Little Botanica to the village are behind the new venture and Marchtown is located in its former premises at 741 Pollokshaws Road.  Opening times are Thursday to Sunday 11am to 11pm. Website here.

Shimla Pinks No More

 Shimla Pinks, 777 Pollokshaws Rd, Glasgow G41 2AX 

It looks as if the Indian restaurant on the edge of the village has closed. Although the food was recommended, the restaurant, named after the capital and largest city of the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh in the Himalayan foothills, was not able to attract enough clientele and appears to have closed. We hear that a new bistro will be taking over the premises in the near future.
