Belleville Rendez-vous Cafe Bar Makeover

Mon 23 Jan - Wed 29 Feb 2012 | Arrive at 5.30 on performance days

The Muvizu presents: Glasgow Youth Film Festival team will be the next group of artists to take part in the Arches Cafe Bar Makeover, where we invite an artist or theatre company to come in and reinvent the restaurant space however they like.

In celebration of their performance of the Edinburgh Fringe sell-out adaptation of Belleville Rendez-vous at the Arches this February, the GYFF team will be transforming the restaurant into a rustic French bistro. Come down and enjoy an exquisite French menu (served on performance dates), vintage Tour de France memorabilia, rusty bicycles, silent movies and a lot of candles.

The following performances will be held as part of the makeover, when the three-course French-themed menu will be available for just £8.95. Please book your table in advance on 0141 565 1000 / as they are very quickly snapped up…
