Cookie, the exciting community-based eatery, deli and shop in Glasgow’s southside, is expanding its unique Sunday/Monday events programme to tempt new and existing customers with a heady mix of cocktails, tapas, pasta, music and film.
Co-owner Domenico Del Priore, who is passionate about using local and seasonal Scottish produce, said, “We’re really looking forward to this. Sundays are one of our busiest days of the week so there’s always a great atmosphere, but we want to encourage more people to pop in later in the afternoon/early evening.
“We’ll be serving jugs of Vodka Collins and Bloody Marys from 3.30pm plus the tastiest tapas imaginable – all to the backdrop of some great sounds from a varied DJ set, this week an all female line up with Belle Chanson & Sanchez.
“Cookie has a far broader offering than some people might realise. As well as being a great venue for eating and shopping in the southside of Glasgow, we can offer a whole range of other things – from films, talks and music to art and cooking demonstrations. Our aim is to become known as the place that’s a little bit different from other restaurants; somewhere quite quirky.”
Cookie is inviting people to come along on Sunday 28th March to meet ‘Mr Collins and Bloody Mary’.
“We’re really looking forward to this,” said Mr Del Priore. “Sundays are one of our busiest days of the week so there’s always a great atmosphere, but we want to encourage more people to pop in later in the afternoon/early evening. We’ll be serving jugs of Vodka Collins and Bloody Marys plus the tastiest tapas imaginable – all to the backdrop of some great sounds from our DJ.”
Meanwhile, Monday 29th March is film night, featuring a movie by the independent American film-maker, Jim Jarmusch. Film night offers great value for money at just £10 per person and includes pasta nibbles to enjoy while watching the big screen.
“We’re so much more than just a restaurant,” said Mr Del Priore. “Cookie is fast-becoming a ‘destination’ venue for southsiders who can count on us to serve tasty food that has been skilfully prepared using the freshest, local and seasonal produce. But we’re also building a very strong reputation as somewhere you can come to relax, meet up with friends and be entertained. And if all you want is a bottle of wine and some delicious cheese to enjoy at home, our serve-over deli is always open, too.”
