The Arches foyer and cafe bar are host to monthly events such as Bratchy and The Wee Man’s Comedy Pub Quiz and the Arches Emporium, as well as regular exhibitions and pop up specials – from album launches to fashion/styling event Bold Souls.

We’ve also recently launched the Arches Cafe Bar Makeover, where artists from different fields are invited to come and restyle the restaurant to their liking before inviting people in for a special evening of food and live performance, with our head chef curating a special themed menu. Watch out for the next one on Jan 23rd when the Glasgow Youth Film Festival team transform the space into a rustic French bistro to celebrate the performance of their charming stage adaptation of Belle-ville Rendezvous here at the Arches on 11th Feb.

NEW! The Arches Cafe Bar and Restaurant is now providing bespoke catering for corporate events in the venue including birthday parties, weddings and launches for up to 100 people. We can tailor catering to suit all dietary requirements and tastes, whether you’d like a formal a la carte menu, a set menu or a buffet. For more information, contact Liz Davies, Arches Café Bar Manager, on 0141 565 1019 or Michael Haughey, Joint Corporate Events and Sponsorship Manager, on 0141 565 1026.
