To make an event booking inquiry contact


We’re a large venue with a reasonably small kitchen so advance booking is always advised and during busy periods, please anticipate up to a 30 minute wait on food.

Gigs and other events may alter our kitchen opening times. Keep up to date on our event calendar and keep an eye on facebook updates.


Mono opened in 2002, furnishing Glasgow with a unique and versatile space in which to eat, drink and discover new music. Over our first decade, we developed a reputation for good beer, good vegan food, good gigs and good times. We are proud of our achievements but we aim to make our second decade even better.

We share our roof with Monorail Music, which lends a sense of community: they provide an eclectic soundtrack to our days and you can buy the music right here if you like it.

Mono has hosted not only some of the most exciting bands around, both local and international, but also exhibitions, book readings, art performances and workshops. Hopefully, something will catch your eye on our events page & we’ll see you soon!
